The easiest way is to build a soffit around the perimeter of the room. You attach a 2x4 to the ceiling and the wall. Then attach a vertical board to the ceiling a horizontal board to the wall and connect them.
These can be pre built if desired. These need to be spaced every 16 inches.
To finish simply attach strip of Sheetrock to vertical and horizontal area....tape bed and texture.

Note you may have to add blocking in the original ceiling joists to have something to nail soffit too...
