Easy DIY No Sew Children's Canopy

{Bookshelf Tutorial/DIY Clipboard Frame Tutorial}

Did you see our room reveal for the One Room Challenge? In one corner I created a book nook for our little girl and the perfect finishing touch is this DIY Children’s Canopy. I looked all over Etsy for a canopy and the prices were seriously outrageous. Some were almost $200!! I knew that this had to be an easy and inexpensive project so I set out to tackle this one myself. I love a good no sew project and my no sew bench cushion is continually my post popular DIY post. You all must love a good no sew project as much as I do!

So this canopy requires minimal supplies and really no DIY skills. The hardest part is finding curtains that you like. Most canopies I saw were from a sheer fabric, but I found these adorable ruffled white curtains at HomeGoods and knew they were the perfect girly touch. They were on clearance for $19.99 too, so even better! I decided to add the teal ribbon for an additional touch, but this isn’t necessary!

Here is what else you will need:

One large embroidery hoop, inner piece removed

white paint, craft or acrylic is fine

fishing line

ceiling hook

fabric glue- I always use Fabri-Tac (only if you are using ribbon)

2 yards of ribbon (optional)

Remove the inner hoop from your embroidery hoop by unscrewing the big screw. I already had removed mine here, but wanted you to see the part that you need to detach.


Paint the inside and outside of your hoop with white paint and let dry.

If you are adding ribbon, lay your curtains out completely flat on the floor. Run a bead of fabric glue across the top of the panel and then press on the ribbon. Let dry completely.

Once everything is dry, open up your hoop and slide on the curtain panels.

Cut two pieces of fishing line to your desired length. Tie a piece onto the front and the back of your hoop, in between where the two panels come together in the back and where there is no panel in the front. Bring the two pieces together and tie at the top.

Screw a ceiling hook into your ceiling and then hang your curtain.


I had hung mine and then realized it needed the ribbon, so took it back down! I wanted you to see the picture of the hook though so you can see what I used. It is just one of those screw in hooks you can purchase from the hardware store.

And that’s it! Easy right? If you can buy curtains, you can handle this tutorial!!


This corner came together just how I wanted and I hope it is a fun place to hang out and snuggle for my two little ones! To see how I made the bookshelves, check out this tutorial! The shelves are super easy and inexpensive to make!

    1. My four year old is super jealous and wants one for her room now!! It is the perfect accessory for a little girl’s room.

  1. Adorable, I am sure she loves snuggling on the pillows and hiding in her little corner! I love those curtains, I have been looking for something like that for my guest room! Gee, I guess I will have to spend more time at Home Goods (we know how dangerous that is)! I would love it if you would stop by and share this at my link party, Celebrate Your Story! tonight (Monday) at 8PM EST! I hope we see you there!
