DIY Girls Bed Net Canopy

Instead of paying $20 for an already made bed net canopy. My daughter and I made one together for under $10!

I got lucky and found some of the other items I needed on clearance at Michaels along with using a coupon. That really helped keep the cost down.

Even without the coupon this project can easily come in under $10.

I purchased the curtains from Ikea, but any sheers would work perfectly. I have plans of adding some lights to the top eventually.

The very first step in creating the canopy is separating the inner and outer rings on the quilting hoop. You simply loosen the screw at the top of the hoop and pull them apart.

Once you have separated the rings, slide the sheers onto the outer ring. Keep in mind the fabric may snag on the hoop so be careful when sliding the fabric onto the hoop.

    You didn't say what to do with the ribbon????

      Sorry, it's in the blog post. You cut three strings of ribbon to your desired length and tie them onto the inner ring. Once knotted onto the ring connect all of the pieces and knot at the to. A visual is in the video! Hope that helps.

    Can this be done for a full size bed?

      My daughter's bed is full size! If you want it larger as the comment says above I would use a larger hoop and two more sheets!

    When putting the curtains on the hoop, put masking tape over the end, this will keep your material from snagging. I do this on regular metal curtain rods.
