Get the look of luxury at budget prices with a simple no-sew window covering. Take a length of dollar-a-yard fabric and fold the sides to create a hem, fusing with fabric glue. Then fold the top down to form a loop large enough to accommodate a $6 tension rod. Glue the edge of the fold to the fabric, leaving a gap to fit the rod. Once the fabric glue had fully dried, pull the tension rod through the rod pocket and secure it in a window frame. Cost: $8.
