I am looking for some cute, unique homemade curtain ideas for kids' rooms.

Depends on your theme. My daughter is very girly so I took some hand me down chiffon shower curtains (with a butterfly garden effect)and placed it over her venetian blinds. she loves it and i put it up with double stick tape (on the back of the valance....very cute.
In another house i purchased a very cute pink satin material with a very intricate bottom border and sewed a white blackout lining (very important for energy efficiency).
Have fun with it and look at magazines while you are in lines waiting to check out...great ideas and usually fairly cheap if you pick apart the design aspect.
FYI--model homes are notorious for beautiful designs made cheap and easy. Once there was a valance made of a folded piece of fabric and underneath it was a 2x4 piece of wood screwed to the wall! Beautiful and simple!
Have you considered a cd curtain for a teen or tweens room? Measure for the length of each string of CDs. Get large jump rings. You will need two per CD except for the bottom one in each string. Drill holes(small and carefully) in the top and bottom of each CD, except for the bottom one in each string, it only needs a top hole. Add a jumpring to each hole. Attach together by linking the jump rings, with single hole CD's at the bottom of each string, undrilled edge at the bottom. You may need quite a few, or u could mix small vinyl records with CD's. Get both at used item stores.
