Hanging Lighted bed canopy
found branches outside (finding branches w/leaves was tricky)
used hemp string to tie together in a tear drop shape w/ support beams in middle so fishing line could be attached to hang it from the ceiling
strung white led lights up in branches
added patches of fabrick covered in rhinestones
covered w/ tule
used screw in hooks to attach to ceiling (via the fish line)
used white extension cord to blend in to wall and ta da pretty canopy
some of the lights flicker which reminds me of fire fly's and the boyfriend calls it "the cloud"
hope you all like it

That looks great. Did you put white (or maybe blue) Christmas lights inside the fabric?
