When Molly P., age 8, from Huntington, New York, asked for a canopy bed, her mom, Helen, came up with this clever substitute. Once they had purchased the streamers, the project took about 15 minutes and cost only $8. Says Molly: "I like being behind the curtain because it makes me feel cozy in there."
Pull the curtain back each morning and tie it to the side with a little piece of streamer.
