Welcome to day 6 of Daily Glory in June, #DGIJ!
Today we are making a super fun and simple fabric headboard. Making a headboard from fabric is a great and affordable way to update your room in 20 minutes. The bed is generally a centerpiece for a room. I want to make a series of updates to my bedroom to make things feel warmer and more grown up. I wanted to start the room makeover by updating my bedding.
I also plan to make a summery duvet, update my wall art, make a chair cover and some other fun and simply chic updates. Be sure to follow the blog so you don’t miss out on the amazing content I have in store to share with you.
Let’s make a fabric headboard.
2 Piece Curtain set *Or 2 pieces of fabric that extends beyond the length and height of the headboard
Drape one piece of the curtain fabric over the top of your headboard, measure the excess fabric that remains beyond your headboard. Mark the edge beyond 1 1/2 inch seam allowance for both sides of the fabric. Work on a flat surface. Flip the curtain fabric inside out, the fabric should be print side to print side. Glue the front and back pieces of the curtain fabric together. Repeat the same steps to glue the top of the headboard cover. Next do a “fit test”, drape the fabric headboard cover over your headboard. Use your washable marker to measure the point 1 1/2 inches beyond the headboard fabric to determine the excess fabric. Lay your fabric flat and use a straight edge to cut the remaining excess fabric off of your headboard cover. Flip the headboard cover inside out. Glue the final side of the headboard cover, be sure to leave the bottom open. Let the hot glue dry for 10 minutes. Insert the headboard cover over your headboard.
