A woven headboard will add the perfect rustic touch to any bedroom! If turquoise isn’t your color, paint this DIY Woven Headboard any color that works in your room. We are quite partial to a deep bohemian purple ourselves.



If you’re looking for a quick easy headboard project, why not try out our Elinor Headboard Wall Decal! This beautiful decal looks even better than the real thing and is only a fraction of the price. It’s available in different bed sizes and colors. Now the tough decision is what color works best in your bedroom.

A great way to add a breezy feel to a bedroom is to hang a curtain rod and curtains behind your bed. This bedroom has such a ‘light’ feel to it and the curtains definitely help with that feeling. You can either add the shutters or just have the curtains by themselves. Either way, it makes a bedroom feel very fresh and airy.



A cottage bedroom isn’t complete with a handmade wooden headboard! This crafter created such a unique headboard with wood, wicker and wood glue! I had no idea you could manipulate wickers so easily. This is definitely a project that I’d love to try.

With using such inexpensive supplies, you can always switch out the design whenever you want to change things up!

We hope that these DIY Headboard projects have inspired you to think twice about buying a brand new one. Sometimes when you create something on your own, it makes it even more special to you. Now it’s time to go to the craft and hardware store and start crafting! Happy Hump Day!
