• 2 sheets of foam core board, you can get it an any craft store
• staple gun
• glue gun
• exacto knife
• curtain rod
• packaging tape
What I did:
First I sketched half of my pelmet box shape onto the foam core, I cut it out with an exacto knife and used it for a template.
Next I cut out all 4 pieces (I made 2 boxes) and cut smaller pieces for the sides of my boxes.
Then I just used packaging tape and taped the whole thing together…
…and laid it out onto the batting and fabric
Then I just pulled and stapled the fabric and batting to the board. Tip: cut slits in the fabric around the rounded parts to get the fabric to lay flat.
To hang the box, I hot glued a curtain rod to the back of the sides and hung it on the wall, super easy!
