Starry starry canopy hack
Handem gave her daughter the stars.
Handem says, “I wanted to decorate my daughter’s bed but could not find anything special enough… I bought fluorescent stars and bugs and had a canopy. (name forgotten) As I was going to put those up, this great idea came up. I sewed all bugs and butterflies on the inside of the canopy. A hot needle helped me put holes into one spike of each star, which were also sewn into the canopy, but at the highest level.
When we turn off the lights at night it looks like she’s sleeping under the stars with many little bugs flying around her.
Some ribbons in matching colors tied to a bow around the hoop makes it even more girlie romantic to look at during the day.”
