I decided to design these DIY miniature no sew curtains for the bedroom after being dissatisfied with an online search for no-sew curtains. I kept it really simple using fabric and Elmer’s glue.
These were made for a bedroom door that leads to a balcony.

diy 1:12 scale curtains

Materials:

  • 2 rectangles of fabric cut to fit the window. Mine measured 5″W x 7″H
  • white glue
  • wood skewer
  • awl
  • 2 beads
  • 10 split loop jump rings
  • acrylic paint
  • super glue
  • emery board
  • mini glue dots (optional)

Instructions
STEP ONE

After cutting out the fabric swatches make a hem on each side of the curtain with a small amount of glue. ( I hemmed 3 sides because I wanted to keep the fringe on the bottom).
Let dry.

Using an awl, make 5 holes spaced evenly at the top of each curtain. Insert the jump rings in the holes.

STEP TWO

Cut the ends of a wooden skewer to measure the width of your window adding up to 1/2″ on each side.
Lightly “sand” the ends with an emery board and then paint with the color of your choice. Let dry.

STEP THREE

Place the curtains on the rod and attach a bead on the ends using a drop of super glue to secure.

Done!

I used mini glue dots to hang the curtains by attaching a dot to each bead so I can easily replace it.

I love these beads . . .thanks to my daughters bead collection!

 

My DIY miniature no sew curtains in the room. Please excuse the condition of the room! I still need to paint the ceilings and add door trim.
