    Step-By-Step Guide-

    • Take your embroidery hoop; unscrew and remove the inside circle. 
    • To the inside circle, tie the ribbon at 3 equal intervals. This will be used to hang your canopy to the ceiling.
    • Take your outer circle of the embroidery hoop and simply start threading your curtain through the casing designed for the curtain rod. 
    • Depending on how bunched up you want the curtains to be, you will need 2 to 4 sheers.

    • Insert the inner circle inside the outer circle and screw the hook. Before it’s tight all the way, make sure to adjust your curtain so it is evenly dispersed around the hoop.  
    • Tie the ribbons into one knot at the desired height, making sure the ribbons are equally long.
    • Drill a hole in the ceiling; screw in your ceiling screw hook and hang your canopy with the ribbon. That’s it!

    You’ll have your canopy in no time, and yet have a great amount of quality time with your loved ones. You can further add various things to your canopies like fairy lights, hangings, and polaroid photographs to enhance the aesthetics and your visualized version of your dreamland!
