Window Coverings for Odd Window?

I have windows that are 20" wide by 4 or 5 ' high any suggestions on window coverings? I was thinking maybe table runners but I can't find any that are sheer enough.

    I would make a cornstarch and water mix and 'glue' some lace to the windows. It peels off easily if you no longer want it.
