Easy Curtains

I have always wanted curtains for my classroom, but never wanted to spend the money on them. Plus, I don't know how to sew.  But, when I went to school last week and saw both 5th grade teachers with curtains, it convinved me even more that I wanted them!  They let me in on a little secret:  they used pillowcases!  First, you need these materials:  spring tension rod and pillowcases. I used two king size per window.
All you do is put the pillowcase through one side and cut a small hole in the other.  Here is what they look like!
I am pleased with how they turned out!
