Curtain Rod Is Too Small

I have new window curtains that need a 2 1/2 inch curtain rod to hang them. How can I make my regular size curtain rods wider so I can use them instead of buying new expensive rods?

Thank You,
Cheryl from Saint Joseph Missouri

Flatten a gift wrap tube and slide in on the rod and slide the curtain over it.

Cut a piece of corregated cardboard that will fit in the curtain pocket. Cut the cardboard to the size your rod will be attached. Gather your curtain on the cardboard then work with sliding your rods into the pocket.

At first this may be a trial and error, but with a little patience you will persevere!

Makes a cheap curtain rod!

If it's going to be covered you could slip a length of PVC over the existing curtain rod.

I've used this "convert-a-rod" product - I thought it worked great. Here's a link, but you can find it at Linens & Things, if you've got one locally!

Use an old PVC Vertical slat. If you don't have one they can be bought in most vertical stores.""
