ladykah81 :  You can use any fabric that you like the look of. What I usually do when decorating is go to the sale section of the fabric store and see what they have that suits the look or theme that I am going for. You can unroll a bolt of fabric and see how it drapes. Can you make nice rounded swags? Or, is it too stiff?

You can use burlap, canvas, or cotton for rustic; chiffon, tulle, organza for more elegant; or a combination for something in between.

Given that you want to have a different color for the base fabric and the overlay, you will need the top fabric to be sheer to allow the underlying color to show through.
