Amazing Curtain Valances

Curtain valances to your draperies allow them to hang properly and also prevent them from flattening a lot when a breeze comes. Chain weights are cheap and available at fabric and low cost stores. They are best because they provide even distribution of weight along the hem on the curtain. Adding chain weights requires basic sewing skills and some time. It’s best to put them before you finish the hem on homemade curtains, but you can easily add them to your existing curtains.


Cut the chain weight to the width of the bottom curtain valances hem with a pair of sharp scissors. These weights are enclosed in a fabric tube and are sold by the shipyard. The fabric keeps the small metal weights evenly along the length of the tube. Put one end of the thread in the eye of your needle and tie the two ends together in a knot. Sew up the end of the fabric tube where you cut it. This prevents the weight from slipping out. Use a straight stitch to do this. Clip the threads and tie them before continuing.
