One question I get the most is about this burlap curtain in my kitchen. It was one of the easiest DIY projects I have ever done, so I thought I would share with you how to make a burlap curtains. My favorite part about this project is that it only took about 20 minutes to make. Score! That’s my kind of DIY!!
I LOVE using burlap sacks for decorating. I have used them to recover seats, hang on a ladder for decor, and for making curtains. They come in lots of different prints which works great for your desired color and decor. I also love how they add an instant farmhouse look to your space too. So, let’s get to how easy they are to make. OH, did I mention I didn’t sew them? That’s a win in my book.
DIY Burlap Curtain
- Burlap Sack (Coffee or Bean sack)
- Tension Rod or Curtain Rod of your choice
- Burlap Twine
- Straight or Safety Pins
- OPTIONAL: Sewing machine to sew seem
Cut the back of your sack off. This first step can be optional, but I did it because it would have been too thick to hang.
Lay your sack horizontal and fold the top down large enough for your rod to have room to fit comfortably through the opening.
I then went along the fold and pinned the fold to the back using straight pins. You can also use safety pins but you use what you got and this was all I had at the time. Make sure your fold is even all the way across before you pin.
Put your rod through the opening. See, I told you this was easy!!
Now, take your twine and cut 2 pieces to your desired size. You can decide how long or short you want your curtains to hang. This is so easy to adjust if you need to (You may want to hang them before you decide your desired height). Then, tie a simple bow to each side making sure both sides were even.
Hang the curtains and you’re DONE! Now you have an added easy farmhouse look to your window and it only took a few short minutes.
This project cost me about $10 and has seriously been one of my favorite additions to my kitchen. It all started with a burlap sack and ended with an adorable farmhouse style curtain. Hopefully, this will inspire you to see past the item and get creative. I love the challenge of taking something and finding a new and fun way to use it. I especially love when I can save money and complete a project with my hands. It’s a feeling of accomplishment. That’s why DIY’s are the best and this
