No Sew Lace Curtains

Adding charm, in the form of lace curtains to your space is easier than you might think! Here’s how I did it to mine!

One of the most common questions I receive from readers is – where did I get the lace curtain panels in my bedroom from?

The answer – I made them!

They are much easier than you probably think, let me show you how to add some French, Victorian, farmhouse flare to standard drape panels.

You Will Need. . .

  • Curtain Panels
  • Lace of Crocheted Table Runner
    • It is extremely important to find one with a simple repeating pattern and no border, crocheted works best for this project.
    • Also, be careful about color and return policies.  I ordered one that was cream and planned to bleach it.  However, when I tried it, only parts of the runner turned white.  It was made with two different types of thread, apparently. In the end, out of desperation, I actually painted the cream to white using cheap acrylic paint from Walmart!!  Oh my gosh, it actually worked!
  • Sewing Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Glue Sticks

Tutorial

  • Measure out how much of the table runner you will need.
  • Carefully clip between the patterns on the table runner and don’t cut straight into any of the more complicated patterns.
    • I saved the extra pieces as “snowflakes” for Christmas wrapping embellishments.
  • Now hot glue the cut table runner to the bottom edge of your panels.
    • I hand stitched mine in place, but in hind sight, that was a lot of unnecessary work.
    • Let the lace hang down an inch or so off the bottom of the panel for a pretty touch.
