Dowel Making a DIY canopy isn't as difficult as you imagine. In fact, Camilla here shows us that you can make one using only wooden dowels, sheer fabric, and thumb tacks. What she did was insert the dowels through the fabric casing and then tacked everything to their bedroom ceiling. EASY.



The use of wooden dowels in creating a DIY canopy bed is a budget-friendly and creative option. Dowels are cylindrical rods typically made of wood or metal, and can be easily found at any hardware store. By inserting them through a fabric casing and securing them to the ceiling with thumb tacks, you can create a beautiful and unique canopy for your bed. This method is not only easy to do, but also allows for customization with different types of fabric and colors. Additionally, using dowels means you can easily take down and change the canopy whenever you want a new look for your bedroom.


Curtain Rods

Curtain Rods If you don't think dowels will hold up the fabrics that you plan to use as canopy, curtain rods are your best friends. Install them parallel to the sides of your bed and drape fabric in a cascading style around the headboard. To add a more romantic effect, add pom-pom trim to your fabric of choice.



Curtain rods are an easy way to add a romantic touch to any canopy bed. They are a great option for heavier fabrics, as they provide more support than dowels and can hold up a variety of fabric styles. To install, simply attach the rods to the sides of the bed frame, and then drape fabric of your choice in a cascading style around the headboard. To add a bit of flair, trim the fabric with pom-pom trim.

When selecting curtain rods, it's important to consider the weight of the fabric you plan to use. Heavier fabrics will require sturdier rods, while lighter fabrics can be supported by thinner rods. Additionally, you'll want to make sure that the rods are the correct length for your bed. Measure the width of your bed and add a few extra inches to make sure that the fabric drapes properly.

When hanging the curtain rods, make sure to use the appropriate hardware for your wall type. For drywall, use wall anchors and screws, while heavier fabrics may require more secure mounting brackets. Finally, make sure to hang the rods at the same height to ensure a consistent look.


Metal Rod

Metal Rod The link below doesn't show a tutorial but I think you can copy this canopy quite easily without a step-by-step guide. This looks like a metal rod that you can buy in any hardware store. Install above your headboard and use it for hanging the canopy around your bed.



The metal rod canopy is a simple and elegant way to add a touch of luxury to your bedroom. It can easily be replicated by purchasing a metal rod from a hardware store and installing it above your headboard. This design is versatile and can be used with any type of fabric or drapery to create a romantic and cozy atmosphere in your room. The metal rod adds a modern touch to the traditional canopy bed and can be easily customized to fit your personal style. Whether you prefer a sheer and airy look or a more dramatic and bold statement, the metal rod canopy is a perfect addition to any bedroom.



Branch If you're aiming for a more rustic look, you can forget using metal rods. Do what Dana did and use a branch! Clever, right? She made this headboard style DIY canopy by hanging a branch from hooks and arranging the sheer fabric in this flirty manner.



Another option for creating a DIY canopy bed is to use a branch as the main support. This adds a natural and rustic touch to the overall look. Blogger Dana from The Naked Coed used this method by hanging a branch from hooks and draping sheer fabric over it. This creates a flirty and whimsical feel to the canopy. This method is also budget-friendly and can be easily customized with different types of branches and fabric. It's a great way to add some personality to your bedroom and make it feel like a cozy retreat. Check out Dana's tutorial for step-by-step instructions on how to make your own branch canopy bed.


Sloping Roof

Sloping Roof This isn't strictly a canopy style bed but it can inspire you to create a version that will cover a part of the bed or even just the sides.




Hoop Using a hoop is one of the tried and tested ways to DIY your own canopy. To make something similar, you will need an embroidery hoop, tulle fabric, and string. Check out the link for the great tutorial.



Rods II

Rods II Another way to make a DIY canopy bed using rods is to install them perpendicular to the sides of your bed. What Mrs. DeVore did was attach one rod to the ceiling and another to the wall right above the headboard of the bed. She then draped curtain panels from the ceiling rod and let it pass behind the rod on the wall.



Hoop II

Hoop II The hoop DIY canopy idea above was for a little girl's bed. This time, we give you an option for modifying that DIY in a way that will be perfect for your own bedroom. I love the addition of the string of beads.



Eyebolts, Turn Buckles, and Wire

Eyebolts, Turn Buckles, and Wire For making this particular canopy bed, you will need to shop at the hardware store first. The eyebolts used here are screwed onto the ceiling. They are what's holding up the rope wire from which the drapes hang. For details on how the whole thing was installed, check out the how-to below.



Lamp Shade

Lamp Shade How cute! This is another DIY canopy bed idea for a little girl's room. However, you can use this method for your own bedroom, too. Remove the flower bit, cover the lampshade in fab fabric, and you're good to go.



Twinkling Lights

Twinkling Lights Lights can really dress up any DIY canopy style. It's a great way to really take the look to the next level, especially for a dorm room.


Twinkling lights can be an easy and affordable way to add a touch of luxury to any DIY canopy bed. Whether you choose to hang them from the canopy frame or drape them across the bed, they create a romantic and inviting atmosphere. Lights can also be used to create a cozy reading nook or to create an intimate space for two. With a few simple supplies and a bit of creativity, you can turn your canopy bed into a dreamy oasis.



Flowers Here is another great add on idea. This one will look great for a hoop style DIY canopy. What little girl wouldn't love this. She can now feel like she's queen of the forest!
