Materials:

  • Plywood
  • Staple Gun
  • Staples
  • Tape Measure
  • Protractor
  • Quilt Batting, 2 bags
  • Polyfill, 2-4 bags
  • Fabric
  • Jigsaw
  • Pencil

Directions:

  1. Cut your wood to size or have them cut it for you when you buy it. We made a king size headboard. It was 76″ wide and 31″ tall.
  2. Cover wood with batting and staple to secure.
  3. Cover with polyfill
  4. Sandwich the polyfill with the fabric. We actually sandwiched the polyfill with a layer of batting, before placing the fabric on top.
  5. Staple to secure.
  6. Adjust padding and secure as you go. Trim excess fabric and batting. The fabric that we used was actually from a shower curtain.
  7. Add mounting hardware and hang your headboard.
