Window Treatment Win Win

2 Materials
1 Hour

Tired of the same ole store bought window dressings?

"Ribbon" Award winning Windows!
1). Start with a 3" deep $3.00 curtain rod from the big box store

I mounted the rod almost to the ceiling to give me room to knot & hang the length of the ribbons, knowing this treatment is not going to be moveable for the view.

2). I selected many hues and textures of Ribbons that match this bathroom

I cut 2 matching pieces of ribbon exact lengths, and started from each opposite ends of the rod and looped over the rod and put one in the center also, so I knew where my center point was. By looping I mean take the ribbon with the loop on top and over the rod to the back of the rod and pull the 2 ends of the ribbon thru the loop under the rod.. always adjusting the knot of the loop straight like you would a mans tie.


I kept adding matching ribbons on each side of my center point till I liked the fullness of the valance. You can easily then trim the bottom straight or the shape you like best.
