Unfortunately that picture doesn’t really show any detail. If you are asking how to create an arch in general, google “DIY pipe and drape”. You will find tutorials on how to use PVC pipe to make an arch.

If you wantg the look of wood as in the pic, you could use two wooden standing coat racks and suspend another piece of wood across the top.

To get the look of the pic, you simply wrap the pipe with tulle and hide mini-lights in the layers of tulle.  You can wrap the mini-lights around the top pole, or use zip straps to hold them in place. It looks like they used white ribbon in the pic.

I would use battery operated strings of mini-lights or fairy lights. If you can, try to find ones with a white cord.

You can also just buy assemble yourself arches at Joanns and Michaels…I have no idea how awful the set up is…but I bought one on a whim for like 20 bucks on sale…normally they’re probably more like 60$.
