Fall curtains are a fun way to break up the monotony of having the same curtains in place year after year. They also give you a chance to take your everyday curtains down to be washed and mended if needed.
If you are worried about fall curtains looking gaudy or over-the-top, that really all depends on you. Fall curtains can match the other fall décor you most likely have up at that time anyway, so you don’t have to worry about it clashing. You can also put up fall curtains that are subtle, but add to the fall feeling in the room.
So with the chance to give your everyday curtains a break and a new area to enhance your fall décor; really it’s a win-win situation all the way around for you.
Finding fall curtains in the stores are not as hard as you think. Will you be able to find pumpkin covered fall curtains as easily as you can find pumpkin covered, fall, shower curtains? No, but you can still other fall curtains.
Instead of looking in the Halloween or fall décor section of the store look in the regular area where the store sells their curtains. You are not looking for something that is only out during this time of year. You are going to look for something that is out all year round, but takes on special significance during this time of year.
What I mean is that you will be looking for normal curtains that are in the fall colors of red, brown, pale orange and yellow. These curtains can be purchased any time of the year, but they will become your special fall curtains because these solid color curtains match the rest of your fall décor.
Making Fall Curtains
If you know how or you can find a sewing pattern, you can always make your own fall curtains, as well. Why would you though, if you can purchase ones that are already made for the same price of the materials make them yourself, but minus the labor you have to put in. Solid, fall color curtains are the same whether you make them or buy them.
You can, however, take curtains that are already made and embellish them with touches of fall. Adding things like fall leaves painted along the bottom of the curtains, maybe a row of iron-on pumpkins along the top of the fall curtains, or fall colored jewels attached along the edges.
