Instead of buying those expensive drapes made specifically for canopy beds, why not try curtains. Curtains are less expensive if you buy them at the right store. Just make sure the curtain's rod length fits the canopy's frame rods. It is easy and cheap!
I have always liked the look of a canopy over a bed but they are too expensive. I am unable to use the bed skirt that comes with a bedding set on my bed, so I used it as a bed canopy. With the help of my husband, we stapled the white fabric part to the ceiling over the bed. On a white ceiling the bed skirt blends in and only the patterned fabric hangs down as a canopy. It looks very nice and you would never know it was a bed skirt.
