Easy Decorative DIY Baby Crib Canopy Ideas for a Boy or Girl Nursery
It's going to be EASY to learn how to make a crib canopy for your baby girl or boy's nursery using fabrics that will work in several different nursery or kids' room themes! There are no-sew canopies made from netting or you can learn how to cover cornice board or attach curtains to a personalized hoop or crown and then attach it securely to the ceiling by a hook.
Some parents have asked, "Is it safe to hang canopies and curtains over the baby's bed?". The answer to this and every question regarding nursery decor is that the most important consideration in any nursery decorating project is the health and safety of your baby.
When choosing a location be certain that your baby can't reach the curtains and you might consider removing the canopy completely when your little one is older and might be tempted to tug on them.
This Disney Princess nursery features the unique combination of a DIY canopy made from sheer fabric and a personalized baby bed crown
from SoZoeyBoutique with curtains added by Mom.
There are many fabrics that can be used to cover the crown of the canopy that reflect the most popular color schemes and baby nursery themes
and baby bedding
sets. Add curtains made from fabrics with a soft drape in a neutral color to get more mileage from the wall decor.
There are many excellent tutorials, with written instructions or videos, that will walk you through the process of sewing (unless you prefer a no-sew tutorial) and mounting the crown to the nursery wall.
You will want to visit our gallery of baby nursery pictures and have a style in mind in order to determine which tutorial is best for your DIY project.

So far, we have shown pictures of elegant canopies but some parents want one that is colorful and fun. For example, one mom-to-be that chose an underwater nursery theme made a wooden canopy base. Then she painted sea creatures on it in bright colors and used baby bath toys to decorate the curtains.

Are Crib Canopies Safe
Always take care with the use of any decorative items in the nursery including a canopy or curtains that might fall, become a choking hazard or injure your baby in any way. Some parents remove the crib canopy at a time when their baby is older and may be tempted to pull on the curtains. It can be re-mounted to the wall when it is no longer dangerous or even used as a playhouse later on.
It is a good idea to remove any decorative items from the room that may be dangerous or be certain that your child can't reach them. Use your best judgement when decorating and accessorizing your little one's room.
