DIY No Sew Drop Cloth Curtains

183,383 Views
I wanted to add patterned curtains to my daughter's room, but didn't want to overwhelm the room with busyness since she already has a gold polka dot feature wall. I chose to use drop cloth curtains with a band of printed fabric at the top to add some interest, but still stay relatively neutral. These curtains were so fun and easy to make, especially since I didn't have to use the sewing machine!
Difficulty: Easy
Easy, no sew drop cloth curtains. Get the custom look without the expense!
First, I measured and cut my fabric to the desired size.
I then ironed a hem and hot glued it together. Much easier and faster than sewing seams! I did this on both curtain panels.
I measured and cut my printed fabric to the desired size. I then ironed the hem and hot glued it - just like with the drop cloths, but to different size specs.
Lastly, I laid my printed fabric over the top of the drop cloth panels and pinned it in place. I used hot glue again to secure the fabric to the drop cloth.
Easy as that! I now have beautiful curtains which were cost effective and easy to make! No sew is definitely the way to go for me in the future!

    What happens to hot glued fabric when you wash it? I'd love the ease of this, but always wondered about durability.

    Is there a "fabric" hot glue that would wash? Also, do they hold up when you pull to open and close? Thanks.

      There are different iron on seam tapes that would work just as well. Just look for ones that are washable. Would still be a no sew project, just without the glue gun. Seam tape is inexpensive too.
