How to dress up a boring window with a shabby animal print valiance. It’s easy, inexpensive, and a great way to use up some of scrap fabric.
I fell in love with these shabby Valiance’s ever since I seen them on Pinterest. It has been on my list of things to make for a very long time, but just never got around to making it.
Wasn’t sure the hubby would like it though, and to my surprise he did. We even talked about me making a couple shabby Valiance’s for the kitchen window (of course no animal print).
I bought fabric remnants at Walmart for $1.00 each.
1. First cut all your animal print fabric into 18″ strips approximately 1″ wide.
2. Cut all your solid fabric into 18″ strips approximately 1/2″ wide.
3. Now tie your fabric strips onto your tension rod, try to center your strips so that they hang evenly.
4. Keep tying the fabric strips in a some what orderly fashion until you have your tension rod full of your animal print fabric strips.
5. Once I had my tension rod full I decided to add five 18″ strips of shimmery gold ribbon just to give it a little more color.
6. Try to space the ribbon out evenly, and just tie on the rod.
7. Now just go back and trim any extra long strips hanging down, just to even it up some. Doesn’t have to be perfect.
8. Hand it in your window and that’s it for your shabby animal print valiance. Wasn’t that easy? I love how it turned out.
