DIY Curtain Hanging Options
For a non-traditional look, try using knobs, nails, or hooks hung above the window to loop curtains over. (This works best for curtains which are decorative and not functional, such as when you have a shade beneath to control the light and just need curtains for decor.)

You can upcycle a yardstick as a curtain rod:
Or it works great as a valance on a lower window, too!
An old rowing oar adds character to any window! Perfect for an outdoors or nautical room.
A branch can be the FREE curtain rod you’ve been dreaming of. Leave it au naturale for a rustic look

Or give an old fence rail new life by welding on a new finial! (Instructions here)
