For a simple window treatment, you can loosely drape a sheer curtain fabric over a pole. Add some decorative finials on each end to give it a more dramatic effect and you have an easy to make yet beautiful window treatment. To put it together, start by measuring the width of the window from outside the frame. The amount of fabric you will need depends on the size of the window, the amount of looping you want, and how far you want it to fall on either side (i.e. to the floor). Typically, you are looking to have the length be about three to four times the width of the window. A longer length can create a an effect like a puddle on either side of your window.
