Add a personal touch to your window treatments with these DIY curtain rods. Get inspired, then design your own.
Glue decorative bone-inlay orbs to 1-1/2-inch wood rings (ours are wood toy wheels from a crafts store) and glue onto a 7/8-inch-diameter dowel painted black.
Select the thicker piece of a two-part bamboo fishing rod. Glue lures (snip off the barbs first) to ring clips. The finials? Orange poly stringer, floats, and more lures.
Hang a hockey stick on hidden brackets. The puck look-alikes are shower curtain hooks we painted black, then squeezed with pliers for a snug fit.
Attach red-handle boiler valves with adapters to a 3/4-inch galvanized pipe and floor flanges. Secure the flanges to wall studs. The rings are steel clamps.
Cut a doorknob set in half, and push each knob into a plastic plug of a curtain rod you've wrapped with ribbon. (You may need to carefully enlarge the plug openings with a drill.)
