Easy No Sew Buffalo Check Curtains

If you are looking for on trend buffalo check curtains without the high price of the Department Store, check out this easy no sew buffalo check version.

The first thing I did was go to Hobby Lobby and buy navy and white buffalo check fabric. It is a duck cloth fabric and was $9.99 a yard, but I used a 40% off coupon. I bought 4 yards for $24. Not only was I able to make curtains for my kitchen and dining area, but I have plenty leftover to make those adorable buffalo check pumpkins I mentioned, plus a couple of other things.

Stencils now are laser cut to give you some of the cleanest cuts out there. They are totally reusable and can be washed easily. I just used a new angel stencil and added a fun raised effect. Let me show you how!
