Crown Bed Canopy Makeover

4 Materials
2 Hours

what if we make a beautiful princess room for our little princess without spending a lots of money? I've got the bed, the princess accessories but I badly wanted the crown canopy over the headboard. When i was browsing online i was shocked by the prices. They were much over my budget. I was thinking about the different possibilities to make my own crown, until I’ve seen one on facebook market place. It wasn’t the colors I wanted, but was a 20 inches width crown and has a rod for the curtains. I bought it for 25$ and shopped some supplies for my magical crown. I couldn’t wait to make it and surprise my 4 years old daughter who dream about princesses and unicorns every second.


This crown has very punchy for my taste, my daughter loves pink everywhere, but sorry it is too much pink and purple for me. It has a good size, 20 inches, pretty big, but perfect for her twin bed.

A crown can be anything, a shelve, a piece of sturdy cardboard or a piece of wood. Just adjusted as you like to be.

The back has a rod. If you make your own crown, even with a shelve from hobby lobby you can add a thin rod in the back to hang the drapery.

I Sprayed with white spray first. Just the front.

I added a glitter spray to have a kind of light shimmery gold effect. And then i sealed with a sealer.

I’m using only sprays because it has a better control on shapes and faster to apply.

the glitter looks like this.

Some gems And pearls for decoration. Ive got that from cvs pharmacy they were at 1$. Nice find right!


every this were self adhesive, but i added some hot glue to secure them.

I used hot glue to hang the sheer pink curtains.

The white curtains had leashes already.

I added some pink flower to the pink curtains with hot glue.

To be accurate, i copied with a paper and a pencil where were the hooks.

Final result. I ordered on amazon a fairy light and hanged them to the canopy to add even more magic.

Watch the video for more details.
