Homemade valance for my craft room

I have been trying to figure out for a while now what to do
with the window in my soon to be craft room.

I wanted to decorate with something girly, but at the same time,
I want plenty of light coming through the window.

I went to Hancock Fabrics a few days ago and let me tell you, they have so many new 
Spring and Summer prints, that I was like a kid in a candy store. LOL
And, most of them, are 30% off right now.

A hundred projects were going through my head at once.
It was so hard to decide!

Finally, yesterday, I had the time to make my new valance and 
this is what I came up with.

All I bought was the material, some red tassels and a pretty red ribbon.
Total cost for this project $11.00

Well, that's it! 
What do you guys think?
I have been trying to work on this room little by little, when a have some free time.
I am working on decorating the top shelves now.
Will share those with you soon.

Thank you for stopping by!

  1. I think it is darling, and better yet the cost! So pretty.

  2. Pretty fabric, there is a lot more detail in it when you see it close up. I guess you can see that more easily with the eye, than the camera shows. The tassels look luxurious! It all looks very pretty, and just right.

  3. I think it's adorable! I love the fabric you chose.
