Instructions

  1. Measure how wide you want the canopy to be. You can make it as wide as your bed or smaller. Cut a piece of wire that is this length.
  2. Measure how deep you want the canopy to be. This is a measurement how far you want the canopy to come out from the headboard towards the foot of the bed. Cut a piece of wire that is this length.
  3. To connect the two wires together, clamp down on the end of one wire until it turns into a hook. Then hook it onto the second wire and clamp down tightly to link them together.

  12. Decorate it anyway you want it with ribbons and trims after you have the basic covering down.
