Finished Size: 36" wide, 12" tall, 7" deep(Note: The window shown is 34" across, and the cornicemeasures 36" wide and 12" tall. If your window measurementsvary, adjust the sizes accordingly. For windows wider than36", glue two sheets together along the 12" edges, joiningthem with thick, white craft glue and wood picks ortoothpicks; u-pins inserted between the pieces will helpenhance the bond. Let glue dry completely before moving on tothe cornice construction.)
- 1. Save one 36" x 12" foam sheet for front of cornice. Measuretwo, 12" x 6" pieces on second foam sheet; score lines withpencil. These will be side pieces. Wax serrated knife withcandle stub, and cut pieces from foam sheet. Or, try dentalfloss: stand the sheet on its edge, and hold a 20" length ofdental floss along the scored line, positioning one hand atthe bottom of the board and the other at the top; draw thedental floss down through the foam sheet along the scored line.
- 2. Refer to Fig. 1 to join sides to front. Place glue on threewood picks, and insert into 12" edge of side piece. Usingthick, white craft glue or low temperature glue gun, join sideto front. Repeat with second side. Let dry completely.
- 3. If using quilt batting, cut 36" x 12" piece of batting.Glue to front of cornice.
- 4. Cut fabric strip measuring 54" x 28". Press fabric, ifneeded. Center and pin fabric to cornice front; pins aretemporary and help hold fabric in place during assembly.Carefully wrap fabric around cornice frame, neatly folding atthe corners and wrapping fabric onto the back. After corniceis covered, glue fabric in place. If any of the cornice frameis uncovered, cover with fabric scrap. If using pins to helphold fabric in place on the reverse side, dip pins in gluefirst, for better hold. Let glue dry.
