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...


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.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. These drapes are fabulous! I love that they make such a bold statement, but are not overpowering! Can't wait to see the tutorial!

    Take care, Trish

  2. Love them - and what a sweet little napping boy you have too. ;-) Can't wait to see the tutorial - I'm all about no sew projects!

  3. The drapes are awesome. They make a huge statement in the room.

  4. The drapes are fantastic, I just love the colours you used for this room, even a teenaged boy would love this room.

  5. I like how you think! I'm always looking for ways to cheat a good look!!

  6. Amazing!!! I have a pair of white twill panels just waiting for stripes to be put on...haven't quite had the time to get to them, but can't wait to get them done. Loving the stars and can't wait to see your tutorial!

  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

  9. Oh my goodness! Those drapes are so cute!

  10. Love the drapes but I love the room even more! AMAZING!

  11. sweet dreams max

  12. Perfect! Love the photos sweeeeet! Hugs and happy weekend wishes. Katherine P.S. Its giveaway time at Katherines Corner!

  13. I am going to Houston this weekend to paint my grandson's room. What color did you use on the walls?

  14. Is it ok that I am super super excited for the tutorial! As someone posted, looks right out of PBKids for a fraction of the cost plus the added feeling of doing it yourself.

  15. so so pretty! love the new drapes!

  16. They look great! I love a good no-sew project. Very nice!
