DIY drapes from remnants without sewing. 1. Lay out strips, line up pattern (if any), cut to desired length 2. Seal edges with packing or duct tape 3. Every 2" staple thru tape about .5" from edge 3. Fold under bottom and sides & seal these with tape too. Staples optional. 4. Pierce top of drapes at tape seams with wire & form loops. Hang drapes from these loops. The stapled seams will force the fabric to pleat. (I kept my upper edges raw since this was a photo set & I even made up a lack of fabric with more tape, but if a more finished look is desired, just form smaller wire loops and put standard curtain rings thru them.) #fakebelieve #ransommitchell #trythisathome
