I had seen something similar to this way back and while in Joann's for another reason I remembered it.
Picked out one patterened print and white broadcloth. I got a yard of each and since it was on sale I think I may have spent $6 on the fabric. Her double window is 60 inches and two yards worked perfectly. I then cut a small snip for the width of my strips and ripped the fabric which served two purposes for me; I can't cut a straight line and I like the wavy texture it gives it. Each strip is a yard long.
Rotating the fabric I looped it over the rod and pulled it tight.
Here is a picture but please forgive because no matter how hard I tried I could not get a good picture with the light.
Her room has one wall painted pink and the fabric matches perfectly!
