I make these for the old folks in the local sheltered house. They like to cover window poles and rails. Materials used are 6mm MDF, wood glue,panel pins, ...
I measure from the centre out and use a compass and free hand to draw the required shape.
I use a scroll jigsaw to cut the shape out, then use a sander to round off the edges.
Glue and pin the top and sides to the front. Sand down and undercoat with matt emulsion.
You may require a couple of base coats. I use old remnants of wallpaper as dust sheets when painting.
I use angle brackets to secure the pelmets.
MDF is easy to use and shape and a great variety of styles can be created.
