{using a curtain rod to hang a bunting}

I love curtain rods. They are good for so many things in addition to actually hanging curtains! I use them along with curtain ring clips for all of kids' artwork in our reading room, I use one to hang Christmas stockings on the mantel, and I use them in my decor. It's the perfect and simple solution to hanging a bunting...just about anywhere! In the nursery, and in my girls' room, it looks adorable and is a darling focal point of the entire room. {LOVE}

It's SO cute over Miss Caroline's crib!   The awesome thing about using a curtain rod is that you can adjust it to whatever size you need--short, long, or extra long. I was able to fit it to the exact size I needed over the crib.

 About 6 weeks ago, we had "the great room swap" to make room for the baby to have her own space, and she moved into what had been my girls' room. They had the bunting over their beds, and the rod just happened to work perfectly with the crib, so I kept it and made a new bunting to match her room.

My girls' "new" room is big, with super high ceilings and a really long wall where their beds are, and a curtain rod was the perfect way to hang a bunting in this room too. I didn't want to make one to cover the entire large wall, or have to start so high up in the corners, so this was a great solution.

If you're looking for a way to hang your favorite bunting for small space or a large space, consider using a curtain rod--it's a really adorable and convenient option! You can use it to hang a bunting just about anywhere! If you don't have a mantel, and really want to hang a cute bunting for a holiday, season, or birthday, you can always find a good spot on a wall in the room of your choice.  As you can see, it works well as decor in a bedroom, but also for a playroom or any other room you want!

Here is a tutorial on how I made the bunting!

    I used your idea for Christmas stockings a couple of years ago!
    It’s great because our mantel is all brick and we’ve always
    Had trouble hanging our stockings. The rest of the year I use the curtsin
    Rod to hang a quilt over the fireplace opening( we currently never use the
    Fireplace for burning wood). I love it! Thanks!
