Table runner valance

So I wanted to share this great idea for valance's. When we built on I got this wonderful family room with 5, yes, 5 windows. I love the windows but you know how expensive it can get to decorate them. I needed blinds, mostly for sun control not privacy, so I got these bamboo roman shades from JCPenny's. They were inexpensive and I have liked them. Now, a little color and you know cuteness was needed. I ran upon these table runners at Walmart. They were the perfect colors for the room.
Best news was, they were on clearance for $3, yes, $3 dollars. So I combed through the shelves and found not 5 but 4. After running to 2 other Walmart's I'm not sure you could say they were so cheap. But when I got my hands on the final one, what a relief, I actually got an extra. I'll tell you what I did with it later.
Picked up 5 new curtain rods with clip rings from Walmart and got started.(Sorry about the blurry picture)

Hung the rods and clipped on the runner, I was done.

I kinda like them. They are not fancy but neither is my room. It is really casual.
Can you just think of the possibilities though. Almost anything could be hung on those clip rings.

Here is what I did with the extra runner. I actually got two pillows to put on the window seats. It helps to spread the color around a little.
Tell me about your inexpensive valance ideas.
