Transcript:No-Sew CurtainsHi, I'm Karla Dehncke and welcome to About.com. You never know what you're going to find at flea markets and yard sales. They can provide an economical choice to home improvement and decoration.
One great idea is what you can do with old sheets or linens. Flea market and yard sale guide, Jace Shoemaker-Galloway recommends turning old sheets or linens or even a tablecloth into no-sew curtains.
No-Sew Curtain SuppliesFor this project you will need:
- old linen, sheets, or tablecloths
- decorative curtain rods with clip on hooks
- ropes, ribbon, garland, or lace decorative tie backs
