How To Make Car Window Curtains? 3 Easy Steps!

How to make car window curtains?

It’s just like making regular curtains but in a car instead of a window in your house.

Are you going on a trip? Needs privacy more than what car tints may cover?

You may want to install some curtains in your car if that’s the case.

There are numerous ways in hanging curtains in your car.

Making them is no different. Upon reading this article you’ll be putting up curtains like a pro.

Well, I had a hard time too when I first started installing curtains in my dad’s campervan.

Nevertheless, they worked well. And now, I am glad to share that with you.

 

Car Window Curtains

Car window curtains have been a trend when it comes to covering the car windows from the inside.

They offer the same features as a tint but are more decorative compared to the lather.

If you want to learn how to make one, you’ve landed on the right page.

We’ve laid out these simple steps for you to follow through.

 

Steps To Make Car Window Curtains

So, how to make car window curtains?

Well, simple things must be done and decided first before you proceed to the actual work.

 

Step #1. Prepare and decide

Make a decision and prepare the following things.

 

#1. Hanging method

You will have to decide which type of curtain you should make.

Whether you’ll be using a rod or a curtain track.

You may also use a magnet on the edges of the curtain or some hooks to go along with it.

The hanging method plays a very important role.

 

#2. Fabric choice

You have to choose a fabric that will fit your curtain needs.

Price and quality should never be compromised.

If you want a blackout curtain, it may be hard to find one that sells per yard but blackout liners may be available.

Consider the weight also.

If you prefer to use Velcro, it may not sustain the weight of the Velcro strips.

 

#3. Hardware

This will depend on your method of hanging.

You’ll need rods if you want to use rods, Velcro, hooks, or curtain tracks.

You might have to use a sewing machine, a sewing kit, some power tools like hand drills if deemed necessary.

The hardware that you’ll need will deeply depend on the hanging method that you will choose.

 

Step #2. Measure

Measure your window’s dimensions.

That includes the length and width of the window.

After you have the measurements, you will have to calculate them and apply them to the fabric.

If you chose curtain rods, you will have to add an extra 4 inches on top and 2 inches at the bottom.

Multiply the curtain’s width by two or three times depending on your fullness preference.

Although I love how full it looks if you multiply the width by 3 times.

You can choose other methods of hanging too.

 

Step #3. Make

In making the curtain, all you need is to place the fabric on a clean flat surface.

Mark the areas where you will fold the fabric for the hems.

An inch allowance for each side will do for the hems.

A double folded hem is advised to make.

The top portion should have at least 2 inches allowance for the rod to slip in.

This DIY rod curtain can be a lot of variation.

You can hang them straight or keep them in place using a drawstring at the end.

You can partially open rod curtains to let some light in and you will have no trouble in taking them down either.

Hanging a rod curtain in campervans is much easier compared to the other methods.

You will also save as much as you can since you can find the materials in your home only.

The only drawback of this type of curtain hanging method is it doesn’t work well with tilting windows.

You might need to sew as well. Although you can use iron-on tape instead of sewing.

Some makeshift rods will not allow some curtains to open smoothly.

You may want to add some Velcro strips for the sides.

The Velcro strips will keep the sides of the curtain in place.

This idea will also work well for tilted windows.

If you go with a rod pocket option, you can make use of the rod and use curtain hooks or clips.

Using these hooks and clips can lengthen the use of your curtains.

These will prevent friction from opening and closing the curtain.

Window curtains are a better option than curtain rods.

I use these methods while adding some Velcro straps at the sides.

For the bottom part, I added some Velcro straps too and attach the other to the end.

I also had some strings that could help me keep the curtains down while the car is moving.

 

Conclusion

Knowing how to make car window curtains could help you save up the hassle of budgeting your money just to purchase one.

You add some of your favorite characters, alter them to your style and make these curtains personalized in a way that they are unique.

You making them yourself makes it unique already.

Although having a simple yet compliment-colored curtain with your van is highly recommendable.
