How DIY Cornice Kits Work

1. Assemble!!!


Assemble the pieces of the styrofoam cornice kit using a low temperature glue gun and dual temperature sticks.  With the option of having us cut your cornice kit to size, your kit is ready to assemble when it arrives.  Simply apply a liberal amount of glue and align the front of the cornice kit.  Hold the pieces for 30 to 45 seconds while the glue cools and dries!

2. Decorate!!!


Decorate the assembled cornice kit using the fabric of your choice.  Simply pick any fabric from any fabric store to create the custom look that matches your personal decor!  The material is simply tucked in the tuck grooves with the supplied tuck tool.  Since the fabric is tucked in, you can change the fabric as often as you change your decor!



Hang the decorated cornice kit at any height that you would like with our one of a kind bracket system. There is no need to find the stud since the cornice is so lightweight.  Each kit comes with enough brackets and hardware to be spaced every 24" to 32".  Simply slide the bracket into the back tuck grooves for a hassle free installation!

Frequently Asked Questions


How do I determine how much fabric I need?

To determine the required fabric simply add 27" to the width of the window.  

example...  40" window... 40" plus 27" equals 67" of fabric

if you added more clearance per side than the 1" or 2" then you will need to add more to 

accommodate this measurement.

Should I use batting?

Batting is not recommended as it makes the cornice lose the sharp and crisp corners and edges.  It also adds weight requiring more brackets.  Batting makes the whole process complicated.

How is my order shipped to me?

Your order is shipped in the correct number of 16" pieces for the face of the cornice to reach your window width, end caps to match the bracket size, and all hardware required to mount the cornice to the wall.  

Orders are shipped USPS Priority or Fed Ex Home depending on shipping costs.

How are the cornice pieces held together?

The cornice pieces are held together using a low temperature glue gun and dual temperature glue sticks.

How far apart are the brackets spaced?

The brackets on the 15" and 16" drop height kits are spaced every 24" and for the 12" and smaller drop height kits they are spaced every 32".  There should always be a bracket on both ends within 4" of the end caps.
