12 No-Sew Window Treatments



I'm currently in the process of redoing my younger son's room. We've finished board & batten, set up bed(s) and now it's on to the windows...and you may or may not know, but I avoid sewing like the plague. The plague. Which means I am fantastic at finding alternatives for the traditional window treatment. Here's a few ideas from some fellow bloggers, as well as a couple from this site as well:

**technically there's 13 here...but two of them are from my kitchen in the same fabric, so I counted them as one**

  8. Since I can't sew, I love no sew things. Thanks for the different options. I need curtains for my office but haven't found any I like, but I have seen material I like. Now I can make my own :)
