DIY Doll Curtain Rods

Glue Gun
Wood Skewer
Plastic Beads
Ribbon (optional)
Sewn Curtain Panels – I made these simple curtains with scrap fabric.  I the fabric to size, then sewed each side to create a finished look, leaving a little pocket along the top to slide the rod through. I made some full panels and others just valances.

Cut the skewer to the desired length – it should extend a bit beyond the window on each side.  Add a dab of hot glue to one end and insert the skewer into the plastic bead.

Place the curtains onto the skewer.  Add another dab of glue onto the other end of the rod and insert it into another plastic bead.

To hang the doll curtains, add a dab of glue to the back of the beads and press firmly into place. If you want to change the curtains out, the rod will pop off with a tug.

I added ribbon as tie backs and voila:
