Bed Canopy from Old Curtains and Embroidery Hoop

It was my ultimate dream as a child to own a princess bed. I was in love with the whole princess idea and the pink color and anything girlie that come with it. I remember wanting a canopy bed really bad and I would always asked my parents, could they get me one and would they paint my room pink instead of the plain white color that every rooms in the house seem to have. Well the answer was always no and they would explain to me with their good senses that I would outgrown it and get tired of the idea very quickly and then they would be wasting their money. Anyway, I love my parents and their sensibility (taught me how to be so frugal with everything). So today I would introduce to you my own DIY version of the item and hopefully somewhere this will make some little girls very happy.
Material List:
- Some strings or yarns
- A pair of good scissors (I hate the bad one that could barely cut a neat line on a piece of paper -__-)
- An embroidery hoop
- A pair of old curtains
- Nail and hammer
Step 1: Disassemble the embroidery hoop
I got mine at Goodwill for only $0.99! I <3 Goodwill.
Should look something like this when you are done. This will allow you to insert the ring into the curtains.
Step 2: Add on the curtains
Step 3: Put the embroidery hoop back together
It should look something like this when you are done.
Step 4: Time to cut the string!
Get your good old pair of scissor and some string laying around the house
Make some knots and ties until you have a decent knot
Step 5: Now sit back and enjoy your effort, maybe take a picture or two and share it with everyone
