Easy Pumpkin Valance for Halloween

This easy valance can be made in an hour or less and you don't need to be an experienced seamstress. All you need are a sewing machine with a straight stitch and a little imagination.

For one valance finished size 40 1/2" x 15 1/2" for a 25" wide window (includes wooden trim), you will need the following:

1/4 yard of orange fabric for the pumpkins
3/8 yard of paperback adhesive fusible web
one piece of green print fabric for stems (about 4" x 5")
1 1/4 yards of neutral cotton fabric for the valance
templates for the pumpkin and the stem.

(You can draw a pumpkin about 5 inches high and about 6 inches wide on cardboard for use as a template. Cut a stem from the same material about 1 1/2 inches high and 1 inch wide.)

Cut a piece 41 inches wide and 18 inches long from the neutral cotton fabric with pinking shears for the valance. The pinking shears will give the fabric a nice finish that will not easily unravel. Turn all four edges under 1/4 inch and iron flat. Sew the two short sides and one long side 1/4 inch from the turned edges. Turn the top edge down 2 inches. Iron flat. This will be the rod pocket. Sew 1/4 inch from the edge. The valance itself is now finished.

Iron the pieces of orange and green fabric to the adhesive side of the fusible web. Then trace 5 pumpkin shapes onto the paper side of the orange piece and 5 stems on the paper side of the green fabric. Make sure your iron is very hot . Iron over the fabric several times, making sure the adhesive transfers to the fabric. Use regular scissors to cut out the pumpkins and the stems.

Remove the paper backings on the pumpkins and stems. Place the pumpkins and stems across the front of the valance, spacing them evenly. Once they are placed satisfactorily, iron them in place. Be very careful as you iron so that the pieces do not shift. Make sure your iron is sufficiently hot so the pieces adhere well. That's it. Your valance is finished and ready to hang.
Quick and easy!
