Whenever the seasons change, I always get the urge to make over the entire house. Since that’s not exactly possible, I found a couple easy ways to at least give the linens a fresh, new look. These simple tutorials can be totally customized to your liking. I prefer to go with the bright colors of spring, but you could also go for something more moody and dark. The best part is that you can get a big change without spending a ton.

Here are 3 creative DIYs to give your linens a new look:

3 CREATIVE DIYS TO GIVE YOUR LINENS A NEW LOOK

Y’all, I’m so proud of this project! And not because it took a lot of hard work….quite the opposite actually. I’m proud because of how great they look & how little work actually had to be done. Does that make me lazy? I hope not 🙂

We have pretty low ceilings in our home, probably 8 feet. So when I started on the curtain hunt I knew I wanted them to be pretty long so I could hang them from the ceiling to the floor and create some height in our living room. You’d be surprised how hard it is to find long pre-made curtains….IKEA has some that are pretty long (we used them here in our dining room), but they are also pretty plain. I didn’t want plain this go around. So I was really only left with custom curtains. And since I didn’t want to break out the sewing machine and I didn’t want to pay anyone else to break out theirs I had to get creative.

That is when I stumbled upon these fabulous patterned flat sheets at Wal-Mart of all places! I knew I had a winner 🙂

At first I hung them like this (I’ll show you how in a second):

And by at first, I mean for THREE years. While I liked them….I can’t say I ever loved this look. So last week I decided to try again.

JACKPOT! These curtains are cheap, long, and pretty!

So here is how you can hit the jackpot on these long flowing curtains that all put make themselves.

Flat sheets are a standard size of 66 inches wide x 96 inches long. If you wanted your panels to be a little more full you could use a full size sheet which is 81 inches wide and 96 inches long. Since I have single windows and never plan on really closing the curtains (although I could) so I went with the twin size.

First, you will need to wash and dry your sheets, possibly even run over them with an iron to get all the wrinkles out. Then you will need to cut them in half. To do this I simply laid the sheet out on the floor and folded it over/in half. Cut along the fold.

You will be surprised how straight this makes your cut. Now here is an optional step….use some stitch-witchery to “hem” your cut edge. Now remember I went the lazy route. Y’all I didn’t even fake sew the edge. There was little to no fraying and the line was surprisingly straight, so I just rolled with it.

How to Make Fabulous Curtains from a Twin Size Sheet!

I mean it when I say PREPARE FOR YOUR MIND TO BE BLOWN. I am about to teach you how to make a no-sew bed skirt without cutting or sewing. Take a moment to process that.  No need to thank me….I AM A GIVER 🙂

Now, let me put this in context for you. Joe and I had been working on our twin girls’ room for about 8 weekends {during naps and in the evenings}, and countless week nights. I was tired people. And, in all candor, I get sick of room makeovers after working on them for that long. Long story short, I was over it. Really, really over it.
