I just wanted to share something that I did this evening my DIY Draped arch 🙂 I think it came out pretty decent. I know that I have to get some more fabric because this one is not that solid and I also have to make another flower ball to go on the other side. The first picture is how it actually looks in its present state. The second picture I altered to show how it would look with two flower balls and the third picture is how it is going to look with a chandelier hanging in the middle 🙂 Sorry for the bad lighting, but let me know what you all think 🙂 Thanks!

I like it, but the two things I noticed that could be improved upon are as follows:
1. It looks awfully short. It needs to be taller than the two of you.
2. The way the beading is draped inside the arch kind of looks like spider web. You could fix that by using tulle or a lace curtain panel there instead, or just letting the beading hang straight down vertically.

@jltoth: Thanks 🙂 I really appreciate it 🙂
Thanks…yes it does look short because it wouldn’t be able to fit in my house itf it was the actual size lol….its actually 9 ft tall so no worries about that…I just shortened it for the picture. I also thought about the beading and was considering different options thanks for your suggestions 🙂

@k_trini05: This looks amazing. My venue has an arch we can use and I want to add some draping to it.
What fabric is this? Did you buy it in bulk? Do you remember the brand?

This is a total long shot.. BUT, do you remember the kind of fabric for the draping you used?
