    No Sew Curtains: Bring the "wow-factor" to a room by accenting hanging tab-top panels with ribbon and rick rack. Natural colors and textures will help keep the pattern from being overwhelming. Before applying trim, carefully measure out the pattern and mark accordingly. Each X extends from side to side and repeats three times from the top to the bottom. The ribbon is glued down first, then the rickrack is glued on top of it. Finally, a button is glued at each intersection. To finish off the edges, cut the ribbon 1 inch longer than needed, wrap it around the edge of the curtain and glue it to the back.

    Love the old dresser with baskets and hydrangea on top! Ooh--glue ribbon on in a pattern. “Choosing natural colors and textures keeps the boldness of the pattern in check.”

Floor-Length Tab-Top Panels: Velvet ribbon in three sherbet shades turns plain white tab-top curtains into an elegant treatment. To create the look, lay out the panels and attach horizontal bands of ribbon with fabric glue. To make the ties at the top, cut the tabs off, then cut six evenly placed, 1-inch horizontal slits across each panel. Finish by cutting V shapes out of the ends of each tie.

Stenciled Curtain Panels Dress up purchased panels with a fun stencil. Lay a panel out flat, with kraft paper underneath it to absorb extra paint. Place the stencil on the panel and use fabric paint to paint on the design.
