DIY Canopy for Less Than $50.00!

Canopy for Master Bedroom
I have always loved canopies, but really thought I would never be able to have one because I have to have a ceiling fan to sleep under; after we knew we were getting our house I started searching Pinterest for ideas for our new home and came across a super neat canopy that leaves room for a ceiling fan!!!
Two and a half years later I FINALLY got it hung up!

This project was not only cheap, but super simple.
I used two curtain rods and hardware
Two sheers
A handful of push-pins
We mounted the rods from the ceiling, took measurements, and ordered the sheers from When the sheers came in I had to make some minor adjustments to the rod slots, but once I got that done we just slid them over the rod that hangs over the middle of our bed, and draped them behind the rod at the head of the bed.
I had a lot of excess hanging down behind my bed, while I normally would not worry about it since it didn't show, I was afraid my cat would get under the bed and make himself a 'new' bed out of the sheers, so I used thumb tacks to tack the excess to the wall; and we had to use a few tacks just below the rod at the head of the bed to keep the sheers from sliding down.
This whole project cost less than $50.00!
The most expensive part was the curtain rods that I purchased from Wal-Mart, in fact, I purchased everything from there.
I was going to buy curtains to hang for the canopy, but because my ceilings are so high the curtains were super expensive, so I went to the store to look at material, again, it was going to cost around $80.00 just for the material! And it was just plain white cotton material!
I went back to and looked at the sheers and found these at $6.00 each and they are super long! They are regular curtain sheers, not the scarf; we used a couple of the scarfs to make a canopy for our granddaughter's room; but they were out of stock when we went to the store to get the material to make our canopy.
Anyways, I was super excited when I found the sheers long enough and wide enough, I only needed 2, for just $6.00 each; and I used the money on my savings catcher to purchase them, so, I guess if you get technical, this project just cost the $35.00 I spent on curtain rods!
The only issues we had installing this canopy was 1)the pocket holes in the sheers was super small and I had to rip out a couple of seams from each end in order to get them over my very small rods, and 2)because the sheer material is so slick we had to pin te sheers to the wall in order to keep them from sliding down.

Thanks for looking at my canopy!
