Linen and Burlap Valance

Linen and Burlap Valance

Welcome to Window Wednesday! We have been in our “new” house for over two years and our windows are still bare. Please join me for a window treatment journey as I attempt to frugally cover them all:)

Adding a valance is probably the easiest, fastest, and least expensive way to dress up a window.  This valance is made from a linen blend fabric. It has a very natural look with a beautiful weave. A linen blend is a bit easier to work than pure linen as it doesn’t wrinkle as easily.

To make this valance, cut the fabric to length plus an allowance for the hem and finish however you like.  This hem is stitched, but fabric glue or fusible tape would work just as well.  The sides were left as is.  I just love the little bit of red thread running along the frayed edges.  After hanging the valance with a tension rod, tie with burlap ribbon to the length you desire.

These burlap ties were cut from a roll of ribbon I found at Terrain. It was a bit of a splurge for me, but it is hard to walk out of there with nothing:)  Everything is fabulous (especially the food)!

This window still needs a little TLC…maybe an indoor flower box???  More to come:)

Thanks for visiting,
