Making burlap curtains via no-sew method from scratch is very easy and requires some basic items. Based on your window measurements, cut out the fabric. Place your fabric on a blanket to protect the work table. Next to create a rod pocket, fold about 6 –10 inches from the top and pin that section. Now stick stitch witchery in between the fold and iron the fabric. The iron needs to be hot for the tape to stick to the fabric. You could repeat the steps for the bottom and sides if you want. Once finished you can insert the rod into the rod pocket and hang your curtains.

If you are crafty enough you could make roses with some burlap fabric and stick them to the tie back with some pearls for a rather sophisticated look.
