Cover your Assembled Frame in Batting.  Complete instructions on how much and what to buy are included with the Kit or Visit the Fabric Guide section.

Center the Frame on your Batting Piece
Attach the Batting to the Frame with your staple gun.  Ends first!  Then the Cornice Cross Piece.
Snip the Batting here and there to prevent overlap as you continue to wrap the ends like a package

NOW… You are ready to Cover
Your Cornice with Your Fabric.

Lay your Batting covered Frame on your Fabric Piece
Start by attaching the Fabric at the ends of the Cornice Frame.
Attach the Fabric to the top rail of the Cornice first.
Fold up the bottom of the Fabric and staple.  This method provides a Professionally finished back to the Cornice.
Finish the Ends by folding the Fabric like you are covering a package and staple in place.  A final tuck and staple and your Cornice is Ready to decorate or Hang on the wall!

It's as Easy as that!

You can adorn your Cornice with decorative belts,
 (perfect for covering any fabric seams)
roping, or appliques.

  The only limitation is your imagination!

Covering Your Cornice...
The Gathered Tube Method

tube

Complete instructions on how much and what to buy are included with the Kit

Fold the Fabric in half with the right sides together.  Sew the Fabric together into a long Tube, wrong side out, using a 1/2 inch seam allowance.  There is no need to sew either end of the Tube closed.

 

step2
Remove the loose End from the Cornice Frame.  Turn the Fabric Tube right side out.  Feed the entire Fabric Tube onto the Cornice Frame.  Position the seam of the Fabric Tube along the back of the Cornice Frame, about 1 inch from the top edge of the Cornice.

 

step3



Attach the loose End to the Cornice Frame with glue and the provided screws.

 

step4
Pull The Fabric Tube over the Cornice End.  Turn the Raw edges of the Fabric under approximately one inch.  Staple the edge of the fabric to the Cornice End.  Repeat at the other End of the Cornice.

 

step6
To Hang the Cornice, follow the instructions in the Kit or in the Video.  In addition when you attach the Hanging Brackets to the Cornice, place a few staples around the Bracket.  This will help to keep the fabric from catching on the brackets when the Cornice is slide on and off the wall.

 

Now Just adjust the Gathers along the front of the Cornice, to achieve the look that you want. And Hang Your Finished on the Wall!

It's as Easy as that!

The Only Limitation is Your Imagination
