Dressing up your bed with a canopy is a great idea to make it look feminine. The most interesting is a bed canopy can be made easily using some simple materials instead of purchasing a bed drape. You can choose the fabrics with the colors and patterns you like and use it for your canopy bed drapes. This will be easier for you to match the canopy with the overall bedroom décor since the drape is the one you make your own.
A canopy for your bed can be made in some different ways. So, you can choose the one you can handle easily for your next project. The fabrics you have bought for the canopy bed drapes can be measured from the top of the top bed to the floor or from the ceiling to the floor if you want to hang curtain rods for transforming your bed into a faux canopy bed. If this is too complicated, you can measure the width and the length of the bed and use the measurement to cut the fabrics. Cut three panels of the fabric materials featuring patterns and colors that complement the walls and other decorative elements in the room.
The first panel should be cut with added the bed’s width measurement. This measurement added with the length or height of the curtain plus 3 inches is used to cut out a rectangular section of the material. The remaining two panels can be cut out in two rectangles in the curtain’s height plus 3 inches by the bed’s length plus two feet. The extra two feet of the material will produce waves and billows when the panels’ hung. So, it is quite easy to make canopy bed drapes. You can choose the fabric your own so that everything can be easily matched.
