Ideas for Disney Fans

This features the creative technique of combining one canopy mounted on the wall with another over the crib. The one on the baby's nursery wall is a SoZoeyBoutique design. The other is a simple DIY crib canopy created using a length of fabric attached to the four posts on each corner of the crib. This would be a perfect project for beginners that want to make their own crib canopy but have few sewing or crafts skills or supplies on hand.
