Play with Valances
Valances can be cut from wood and covered in fabric. They can be covered with cork and used as a bulletin board for your favorite pictures, which you can then change at a whim. Use chalkboard paint and post favorite inspirational quotes. Sporting equipment is another great base for a window topper. Hang team pennants off a baseball bat or a hockey stick. In a baby's room, hang a valance from wooden blocks hung above the window. The options are endless!
