How to make curtains using burlap is probably the easiest and most inexpensive way to decorate a room especially if you have a lot of windows. Our family room has 10 large over sized windows and needless to say, purchasing drapery, custom or not, would have cost a pretty penny. The drapes I wanted were a light brown and cost $55 a panel. Yikes! I decided to purchase burlap in natural color and if you know anything about burlap, it’s cheap!
I had a coupon for Michael’s for 50% off so I paid a $1.50 per yard. I used 3 1/2 yards per panel. Not only did the burlap add a great color to the room, the texture was the icing on the cake. I love how you can see through the new burlap drapes.
