Want to add a little softness and romance to your bedroom? Here are great projects on making a fast, easy and cheap DIY bed canopy to be hung anytime you want to cozy up! Also consider draping it around a sofa or a reading chair, hanging it over an entry table or fireplace mantel for drama, or use it to play up a focal point in any room. Oh, and don’t forget, the bed!
Combine this treatment over your loveseat with a few floral or lace pillows for a wonderful cottage look. Add it over an entry art display for an elegant backdrop, or use it over your little princess’s bed for a no fuss special room treatment! You could add fringe or beading to the bottom edge with a glue gun.
This project holds a huge range of possibilities for adding romance and charm to your rooms, on a budget! Basics are easy! Think of it like hanging curtains or towels, just from the ceiling instead of the walls.
Step 1 – Attach something to hang fabric from to the ceiling. Determine whether you want the fabric to drape to the floor, surround the entire bed, or only accent the corners.
Step 2 – Hang the fabric of your choice! It really is that simple…
