I really have come to feel that window treatments and lighting fixtures are like the jewelry of a room. They can take a nice room and make it a WOW room. Valances are a great way to give your windows some extra attention. Here are some easy no-sew valance projects to give you some ideas for your own home.
1. Rug Valance
Definitely no sewing here! Take some spare (or new) fabric, batting, and foam board to create this simple box valance. Read the tutorial from My Straw is Glass.
2. Crown Molding Valance
This crown molding valance is a great option if you’d like a bit of a classier look without breaking the bank. I like how you can use the same crown molding you use to give your walls some accenting as well. Idea from I Heart Naptime.
3. Burlap Valance
You can’t go wrong with burlap, especially if you’re going for a farmhouse feel. This valance adds a sense of style and comfort at the same time. Read the DIY instructions from 11 Magnolia Lane.
