DIY No-Sew Star Drapes

I've been busy updating the boys room little by little.  The time has come to graduate from the nautical theme into a more mature design that reflects their love of sports {sniff}.   I few weeks ago I shared the first two projects we tackled, The DIY Interchangeable Trophy Shelf and The Custom Sports Equipment Closet.

This week,  I finished their new semi-custom drapes...









It's kind of funny referring to them as "semi-custom".  That phrase makes them sound fancier than they are.  This no-sew project took less than 2 hours to complete.  The process is similar to my DIY Striped Drapes just a little quicker.

It's a perfect nap time project. 












The total cost was $35.  It would have been less if I was able to use their current navy drapes.  After removing them I noticed they were faded and needed to be replaced. 


Here is what they had before...

And now...


{After}





The addition of the stars completely changed the space.  
The large graphic pattern had a huge impact on the tiny room. 













After the drapes were up, I realized I no longer needed as many accessories as I originally thought.  The new drapes and bold wall stripes brought enough visual interest and personality to the space. 












Less clutter makes me a happy girl. 











I'll be posting a step by step tutorial for this project on Monday.

If you would like to whip up a pair, here's what you will need to pick up this weekend...










one pair of dark canvas drapes ($17 Walmart), one large white tablecloth or canvas/twill fabric ($13 Target), two tubes of Liquid Stitch or StitchWitchery Fabric Bonding Tape (Walmart $3) and a Sharpie.

  7. Ooooh Sarah, they are so fun! I love them. They look like they came right out of a Pottery Barn catalogue! I was sure you were gonna say the stars were painted on...but I love the idea of using fabric stars and StitchWitchery. Can't wait to see your step by step. ~Kerri, A Pop of Pretty

  8. I love them! I loved your striped drapes too! I'd love to make something similar for my dining area. One question- on both you paired a dark fabric with white. Doesn't that make washing them out of the question?

    1. Hey Becky, I probably would not machine wash these. If you stitched them together {as opposed to liquid stitch} and prewashed the fabric to prevent bleeding then they could probably go in the washing machine.
      Great question. Best, Sarah
