4 Steps to Making a BODY Pillowcase into a Valance

A valance out of a body pillowcase, what??  I had originally got this to cut in half and make 2 shams out of. This particular one is from Target, which happens to be on sale right now.  It's also the kind that has a zipper on the side.  I don't know why I thought to throw it over the curtain rod, but it fit, PERFECTLY!  Who knew?  It seems selfish not to share this newly found knowledge.  You're welcome:)

Quick and Easy.  To sew or not to sew?  How about no sew?

Step 1.  Iron your pillowcase.

Step 2. Turn it over and fold over top (I did 5.5").  Iron the crease.

Step 3.
Hang your valance over an ugly cheap metal curtain rod.

Step 4.  Step back and marvel at yourself for making a valance in less than 10 minutes.  You might even want to give yourself a hug, or high five the air...maybe even a fist bump.  Either way, when it's all said and done, let out a big "Boo-ya!  Look what I just made, I'm awesome!"
