DIY Tree Branch Curtain Rods
Don't you just hate how much it costs to install curtains?! First off the curtains themselves are outrageous and then you have to buy the rods to hang the darn things up!
Well, I have a great and beautiful solution for you - TREE BRANCH CURTAIN RODS!!
I made these gorgeous curtains for our master bedroom and I wanted to find something cheap, but beautiful to hang these up. I decided to cut down a couple tree branches from the front yard and nail them up and to my suprise they were the perfect addition to the room.
I still have many projects before this room is complete, but at least now I am heading in the right direction.
This was a very simple project.
The key is to pick branches that are long enough and show a little character. You also want to make sure that they aren't too bent, or they won't nail properly to your wall.
Then I cut off all little branches and leaves so that I was left with a long straight branch, with a couple branches sprouting off.
I just took a couple small nails and nailed the branch right to my wall, simple as that!
For the curtains I used ring clips so that I could just clip them right to my curtain and put the rings right onto the branch (make sure you put your ring on before you nail your branch to the wall ;-)).
I didn't measure a thing for this project. I didn't want things to look too matchy matchy.
I realize that is probably going to be a love it or hate it idea, but I think it provides nice texture to the room.
