A painters dropcloth was the material chosen for this curtain, however Ive also used white crisp bed sheets. The beauty of either choice is that both are prehemmed and ready to hang.
And adding some preferred curtain bling, such as the mix of buttons and twine you see here, just makes them more... junky? :)
Step one:
Grab the coolest hanger you can find. I loved this one for the woodtone and typography.
Your choice of clothespins make a difference too. I selected the most weathered ones I could hunt down.
Go new on both if you desire more of an upscale look. Painting them is another unique option.
Step two:
Simply pull the material through the curtain opening and poof it up.
Drop cloths are very thick and give you a beefier apperance than, say, a cotton/poly sheet. Both have their place, depending on the look youre after.
Step three:
Clip on the clothespins so your material stays put.
 
Step four:
Hangem up on the molding edge of your window and enjoy the conversation youre sure to conjour up when visitors pay a visit.
Then you can tell them this project was Made In Canada, eh? :)

This little eclectic easy idea for curtains is so embarassingly simple, it really doesn't need a tutorial. Basically put, if you desire some 'dummy' curtains for an added touch of warmth to your windows, this no-sew no-hardware solution may be for you.
