Spruce up your store-bought baby canopy with one of these 7 ideas for DIY Baby Canopy Decorations. Before getting to work, make sure you familiarize yourself with baby crib safety.
To add some fluff to your baby’s crib, you can sew two rows of pom-poms onto the canopy parting. Either make your own pom-pom so that you can choose the color and size, or go out hunting for the perfect pom-poms. We like this combination of white, baby blue, and baby pink, but you can definitely choose bolder colors or keep to one color scheme.
2. Embroidery Hoop & Ribbons
It is also a good idea to add a centerpiece to your plain sheer baby canopy. There is a common trick of combining an embroidery hoop with ribbons of different patterns and shades. Moreover, it also acts as a baby mobile. Lastly, if you don’t like the ribbons, you can substitute it with anything else, such as stars, pom-poms, butterflies, etc. using any material you like.
Another idea is to use feathers which adds a kind of whimsy to your baby’s crib. You can also drape lace ribbons around the baby canopy like in this photo. If you want something more bold, you could use a dreamcatcher to ground the feathers. Alternatively, you could also weave feathers with colored beads to weigh it down.
4. Flower Crown
Some parents believe that a baby canopy isn’t complete without a beautiful flower crown. After all, this is your baby princess or prince snoozing underneath. You can stitch an array of flowers around an embroidery loop. If you don’t like the hanging bubbles, you can easily do away with it. Also, you can go for a single flower and color for simple charm.
5. Butterflies and Fairy Lights
If you want to go for glam, you could construct an elaborate butterfly chandelier with fairy lights. However, we recommend taking extra precaution when hanging these lights to prevent harm to your baby. Perhaps, it would be a good idea to hold off this decoration until your baby is 1 year old. Alternatively, you could substitute the butterflies with origami paper cranes! Most importantly, have fun coming up with your own DIY baby canopy decoration.
6. Top Bow
If you’re going for a clean and neat DIY baby canopy decoration, try giving the canopy a big top bow. Secondly, match the color of the bow to any other colors in the nursery. This is simple enough, but does a great job at completing your baby canopy. Furthermore, we like this idea because your baby is a a gift.
Or, maybe you want your baby to have her or his own little castle. So, why not top your baby canopy with a majestic crown. Additionally, you can have fun assembling raw materials such as choosing your favorite crown colors and type of jewels.
