When we moved here this last summer I was determined to have windows that look more complete and homely then just blinds hanging in them. So I made this valance with some cardboard, hot glue and push pins. It is hanging with push pins and a little sticky tack for some reinforcement. I am decorating the house on a budget and it's really hard to make something that is more permanent when we are going to move in a couple of years for rotations.
The back of the valance.
Its kind of hard to see but the push pins are under neath the fabric poking out on the end.
