This instructable will tell you how to make a really simple curtain from any old peice of fabric you have lying around.

I made one of these curtains for my secret den because I am poor and cannot afford to buy curtains, although not rich in currency I am rich in junk and creativity ;) additionally these curtains are great for places where you can't put up a proper curtain rail.

You will need:
Fabric (the size of the hole you intend to cover or bigger)
Screws ( x2 )

Optional but usefull extras:
Eyelets and eyelet pliers
Swiss army knife
and/or other cutting impliments

Step 1: Make holes in fabric

First make some holes along the top of your fabric destined to become a curtain with your screwdriver. That's right, no fancy tools needed, just push your screwdriver through the fabric! If it's too thick then you may need your swiss army knife or some scissors to cut the holes.
I advise you make the holes about 10cm / 4inches apart, but you can make as many or as few as you want.
Thank you. I have an apartment with a window 25 feet wide in my bedroom. I couldn't put up a curtain rod because the windows are flush with the walls. I didn't know what to do besides tack up a sheet. This is wonderful.
Holy fhtagn , this tutorial acctually helped you!? fantastic :D I thought I was pretty much pointless and lost to obscurity :)
