There are many great versions of DIY Headboards around the web on various blogs, and I definitely drew my inspiration from great tutorials like Censational Girl's to create my newest headboard.
I used some Dwell Studio fabric - Vintage Blossom in Citrine and nailheads from eBay for my creation. I was lucky and found the fabric at a local discount home store for $3.25 a yard!
I followed the simple steps of cutting the pattern using a stencil I drew on craft paper, stapling the batting down, followed by the fabric. I then used a rubber mallet to hammer in the nailheads. Here is the finished product!
I am in love with it and all of the color and pattern it brings to my otherwise neutral bedroom.
