Crafty PT-ers I need your help! I really want to get a canopy for my reading corner much like the one pictured here at oriental trading.

I wanted see if anyone has made anything like this in the past or knows anyone who has that could pass on a how to. If not I will probably order this one from oriental trading, but figured I would check here first Thanks!

This is really cute, but some schools would probably say it is a fire safety problem. I would probably check first to make sure it would be allowed before I would invest time and or money.

I just bought my daughter one at Lowe's for $24.99. It goes over her bed, but it just might work for you too. They had 2 or 3 to pick from.

And this is why I love PT


Kindygirl & Kindercan -Just what I was looking for! Thank you!!

Suetoo- Thanks for the reminder! I already know our school allows us to hang things like this but I also know that many do not for fire safety.

L84School- I was thinking hoola hoop at first too. But I also wanted to tell you, I love your name! I often run around in the mornings thinking "I'm going to be late for school"

has the bed canopy. I do believe they are only in white, but you can dress it up with all sorts of things and you may even be able to dye it whatever color goes with your theme.

My dd's had the bed ones for their bedrooms when they were a little younger. One had a frog one the other a monkey one. I think they came from the bedding area in somewhere like Walmart or target. I would check around anywhere they sell kids bedding. We paid around $10.
