One question I get more than anything is about this burlap sack curtain. It was one of the easiest DIY projects I have ever done, so I thought I would share with you how to make them. 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. I could go on and on but that is for another post. 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.
Here is what you need:
- 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 twin 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) I then tied a simple bow to each side making sure both sides were even.
Hang and DONE!!! BOOM!! Now you have an 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 passed 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!!
Thank you so much for stopping by!! I would love to answer any questions or chat about this project. See you next time!
