DIY Fix for Broken or Lost Valance Clips – Materials Needed
- 3M Command Velcro Strips
- Super Glue
- 2 pieces of thin plywood or shims or thick cardboard or other scrap
DIY Fix for Broken or Lost Valance Clips – Steps
Stick together 2 of the Velcro Sides of the Command Strips. Peel the sticker off of one side. Stick about 6″ away from the end of the blinds. Do the same on the other end of the blinds.
Cut 2 pieces of plywood, thick cardboard (like from a shipping box), or shim about 2″ x 3″.
Super Glue both pieces to the groovy back of the valence. Make sure the pieces line up with the 3M Command Strips. The pieces will create a nice flat surface for the command strips to grab on to.
Now, you can peel the backing off the outside facing command strips and press the Valance back into place. BUT, if you want to be extra secure, you can also Super Glue that outside command strip to the pieces, like I did. Make sure to hold the Valance in place long enough for the glue to dry. You can see how I did it in my video.
