These no-sew burlap curtains are easy decor to use in your rental, apartment or even brand new home!
Oh how I love burlap. So easy to use, so inexpensive to buy and perfect for nearly every project! I have seriously found a new love for burlap and this curtain is just another example of why. I realized my kitchen window was missing something, a window covering! So I went into my craft room, found some left over burlap from a previous project, measured it and sure enough it was the exact right size for making a window covering for that window!
So I snatched up some no sew Stitch Witchery, the iron and quickly made up an adorable Roman Curtain. This project seriously took less than 5 minutes to complete, cost less that $5 total and looks fantastic!
Other creative burlap projects:
1 1/2 yard burlap
Stitch Witchery (approx 36 inches)
Ribbon or Burlap Ribbon
Iron and Ironing Board
First, iron out all of the creases out of your burlap. Make sure your iron is on the highest setting (and you may need to also use a spray bottled). Don’t worry the burlap is hardy, it can take the heat.
Next, make a 2-3 inch fold at the top of the burlap (the part that you want to make the top of your curtain), iron that fold down to make a defined crease. Fold that piece over one more time and again iron.
Take your Stitch Witchery and lay it down along the double folded pocket. This is going to be your pocket for putting a curtain rod through. Place your iron on the burlap on top of the no sew Stitch Witchery. Hold your iron in one place for about 10 seconds, spray or steam the area while it sits. Do this all the way along the top of the curtain, until the entire pocket is created.
Lastly take your ribbon (I used chevron patterned burlap ribbon I already had) and cut 2 pieces to a length twice as long as your curtain. Drape it over the top of your curtain. At this point you can attach it to the curtain at the very top with the Stitch Witchery. I did not do this step, as I decided it was secure enough and was not going to slide around. Finish your curtain by tying the ribbon to the desired length.
