DIY Drapery Window Sconces!

I wanted to find something that was different and inexpensive to hang up my No-Sew Scarf Valances, so I made my own DIY Drapery Window Sconces.

I used a few simple supplies from Home Depot to complete this task.

I used 6 Square Molding Trim pieces and 6 double-sided screws.  That is it!  Total spent was $55.

Tips and Tricks on how to DIY Window Sconce-

I started by marking off my drill bit so I knew how far to pre-drill my pilot hole.  I used tape since black marker would not show up.

I marked the tip of the double-sided screw with a marker so I knew where to stop and not drill through the square trim piece. I placed the double-sided screw into my Ryobi drill and drilled into the center back of all the trim pieces.

  1. Hello, I tried duplicating your drapery window sconces. This is probably a stupid question but I can’t figure out why you used 6 molding trim pieces when I only see 3 and don’t see that part mentioned in your instructions.Can you help me out here ? I tried buying some and cannot find any that are not very gaudy, so these would be perfect if I can get it right. Thank you very much.

    • Claudia, I have 2 windows in my room and used 3 for each window. I am sorry, I need to explain that better. I hope you find the perfect molding pieces because I still love mine and they are easy!

I love to hear your feedback, please leave comments!
