How Do You Make An Awning Valance?
An awning valance is a cute window treatment for a room that brings a little bit of the outdoors in. The bottom edge projects out from the window slightly, giving you the feeling you are enjoying a stroll down a pleasant little market street. The valance is shaped primarily from 3 basic pieces: One for the front and the two angled sides. It also uses two rods: One for the top and one with a larger return to set it further away from the window on the bottom edge. The awning valance is lined to allow it to lie nicely and to avoid shadowing of the rods underneath. This pattern is for the basic structure of an awning valance. You can add scalloped or geometrical shaped edges to yours if you wish. Step 1 Attach your curtain rods. Attach the rod with the 3-1/2 inch return at the top of the window frame. Attach the rod with the 5-1/2 inch return 10 inches below the top rod. Step 2 Draw the side pattern on newspaper. Draw a 6-1/2 inch wide by 2-1/2 inch tall rectangle. Connect a line extending
