For really frugal and warm curtains, I purchased two of those fleece throws that are on sale for under $5 and used the inexpensive gold clips. The two throws fit a 76 inch picture window nicely, and they come in dark colors also nice for wintertime. Mine came with a nice cloth bow tied around it which I used for tiebacks.

Editor's Note: If you need larger curtains:
Last winter after being cold from our single pane sliding glass door and not having the money to replace it, we bought a large piece of polar fleece to cover the window. (It's an 6 X 8 Foot window, I looked online for the best deal and ordered 3 or 4 yards of 60 inch wide good quality fleece. I think it cost about $50.)
If you have decorated your child's room with the latest cartoon characters and those light weight curtains just don't cut it in the winter, why not make some out of Polar Fleece?
They make polar fleece with all the latest cartoon characters and the fleece will help to hold in the heat. If letting in daylight is not a problem Make a frame out of lattice strips and staple the polar fleece on to it for a colorful insulation for the winter.
