There are so many fantastic ideas for economical window treatments. Here are 5 of my favouites from Better Homes and Gardens website that could be used for kid's rooms.
You can buy jars of mismatched buttons for very reasonable prices and have a field day decorating drapes for kids' rooms. Glue them on rather than sewing them which is time consuming. This idea would not work in a young child's room for safety reasons.
Follow the link under the photo for ideas on how to apply these fabric diamonds to a plain panel. You could also make a diamond stencil from cardboard and paint the diamonds with fabric paint.
This is such a cute idea for a little girl's room to add richness and softness to plain drapes. I like the application of the diamond belt buckle for that extra bit of glitz. . Check the Better Homes and Gardens link for directions.
Dress up any draperies with velvet ribbon applied using washable fabric glue.Nothing beats white for a fresh crisp look and lots of colour options.
Purchase large letter stencils to decorate draperies. The vertical application on one side is interesting and unexpected. Trace the letters with a pencil and paint inside the lines. Great for a boy's room.
