Curtain Clip Rings

My daughter Amy and I spent a day recently making curtains for her family room.
She had an idea that made for an easy and money saving project that I wanted to share with you.

The family room has 4 large windows, and a very high ceiling. Amy wanted to use curtains to make the room a little more cozy and to bring the focus down to eye level.
It would be almost impossible to find ready made curtains that would meet the room's unique measurements, plus the cost could be quite pricey.

You know these young mom's. They hunt the Internet and find wonderful bargains.
Amy found the cutest designer fabrics at a very affordable price per yard, and ordered on line.
Doesn't this look a lot like an Amy Butler type of print?
In keeping with the simplicity, we measured the length, allowing enough extra to turn under the top and hem.
Even though each panel was quite long at 110", they were easy to sew and hang.

Then Amy attached each panel with these nifty clip rings.
Are these not the greatest little invention?
We completed the entire room in one afternoon.

It was that easy.

It's been fun helping my daughter with a few of the little decoration projects around her home. We also recovered pillows on her living room couch to add more color into the room.

FYI: Clip Rings can be found at many home decoration stores.

I found them for a good price on

love the curtains...........great job
I like the clip rings for something else...they are sturdy but inexpensive handle rings on the handbags I make and they are available in many colours...just pull off the clips...easy peasy!

I ordered the fabric from
They let you order a sample swatch for $1.75. I ordered many samples before making my final choice, since I was ordering 20 yards! Colors can be quite different than they appear on a computer screen.

These rods and clip rings also work great to hang quilts at home:)

Amy is such a lucky gal to have a mom like you Nedra!
I need curtains in my front room, I want them casual but classy. I love the rings and clips. Thanks once again Nedra for sharing a great idea.

I'm such a fan of the clip rings as they work for hanging quilts, too. I never make casings anymore. Love the drapes. They are perfect.
