Interesting Tea Towels
Sometimes people have a number of tea towels that they feel are too good to use. It might be gifts or souvenirs from your travels, or it might be gifts from someone or just something you bought because it looked good. Rather than just having them sitting in a drawer or cupboard, how about attaching a few of your favourites and creating a window hanging that gives you a chance to enjoy them while they serve a practical purpose.
Large Macrame Hangings
A macrame curtain could be a great addition to any room. It adds a creative design to the window and suits all kinds of designs and styles. You can learn the art yourself and see what you can come up with, but there is a lot of macrame on the market right now from highly talented artists of varying forms, curtains, pillows, plant holders and a lot more.
Another one for people who enjoy crafting is finding and putting together vintage doilies to create a window treatment. It can hang down as far or as little as you prefer and they are easy to source around thrift stores and the like.
Old maps are so interesting to look at! Some of them are truly pieces of art all on their own. You could put one up as something of interest on the wall, or you could take a step further and use one or more for a window.
If you have fabric scraps around the home and do not know what to do with them, you could cut them into strips and tie them to a curtain rod. You do not even need any sewing or crafting skills!
Whether you choose to tray a macrame curtain, a map, a flag or something else, you do not have to stay traditional. Think out of the box and you can achieve all kinds of interesting looks for your windows.
