Convincing our daughters that all boys are frogs, and they are princesses, what girls bed would be complete without a crowning touch like an overhead canopy? Making one yourself is extremely easy and affordable.
a staple gun, fabric glue, a piece of plywood or other rigid board cut to a circle, and some drywall screws and hand-held drill
For the one pictured, I used some soft felt for the underside cover and the top ring (1 1/2 to 2 yards should be more than sufficient), 2 colors of sparkle tulle (about 8 yards each-on sale, this runs about $.79 per yard!), some zebra print ribbon for the tie-backs (1 yard cut into 2 pieces), some sequined cording (about 1 1/2 yards), over-sized faux pearls (1 package) and a black feather boa. You can find all of this stuff at a crafts store; I like Hobby Lobby because they put their fabrics on sale frequently. For this canopy, I spent about $20-25. You can find something similar online for much more and it’s not nearly as “customized” to suit your daughter’s room decor.
