This cornice board was a really easy project.  I didn’t want something that was too heavy to hang, so I used a sheet of styrofoam from Hobby Lobby.

Cut the front to the correct size, a little wider than the window.  Next, cut 2 side pieces to the depth that you want the board to come out from the window. Cut a piece for the top with the same length and depth.  I used toothpicks and a little glue to assemble the box.  Once you have the box together, wrap a sheet of stuffing around to give it a padded look.  Then, wrap with the fabric (I choose a pintucked fabric).  Attach the fabric on the back of the board with glue and let it dry.  For a finishing touch, I added the little blue flowers (found in the scrapbooking section) with a dot of glue.  The end result is a very light weight cornice board!
