If you can’t sew, it may seem like you can’t make anything with fabric. But this isn’t true! There are actually lots of projects that look like they’ve been sewed, but they haven’t. In fact, there are lots of no-sew window treatments which don’t require any skills at all. I’ve gathered together a few tutorials for making no-sew window treatments–hope they inspire you!
I love these roman window shades from Better Homes & Gardens. It’s hard to believe they don’t require sewing! All you really need is some glue. To add interest to the shades, consider glueing colorful ribbons around the edges.

Enjoy Chandler posted two ways to make your own curtains without sewing. You can either hang up fabric with clip-ons, or you can cut slots in the back of the curtain so that you can attach it to the rod. I love the way both of these look!
