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
- 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.
