Then, I placed the bed-sheet on the floor with the foam board on top and covered all three sides except the top with the old bed-sheet, using mostly hot glue and sometimes staple gun.
Next, I flipped the board and filled it in with the pillow filling that I took out from an extra pillow.
And then I just closed off the front just like the other sides.
Next, I wanted to see if the new design would work or not because I didn’t feel comfortable, so I just draped the main fabric on it and placed the headboard in position, took some pictures and shared with a friend who hated the look. And so, it was decided, the top is coming off.
I unwrapped the bed-sheet from the top and cut off the top part, closed it off again and proceeded with attaching the main fabric using glue gun.
I placed the headboard facing down onto the main fabric so that the wrong side of the fabric faced the right side of the headboard.
One side at a time, I pulled the fabric and pinned it along the edge to make sure that it was taut. Then I glued all the sides onto the board’s back.
Then, came the time for tufting! My fav!! I had to think a lot to figure out how to do this. And then it occurred to me.
First, I marked the back of my board this way so that I had 9 tufts.
Then, I took my needle and thread, threaded the needle and tied a knot at the end.
Next, I cut out a square piece of fabric from the sheet measuring 2” from all sides.
I folded the square to make a smaller square, placed it on the mark. Inserted the needle from one side, brought it out from the other, and repeated making sure to leave a small distance between the two.
After bringing it back from the other side, I pulled the two thread tightly and tied them into a knot creating a tuft at the front. I repeated the steps for the rest 8.
And then I just placed the board at the back of my pillow without any attachment. (I’m too scared to get a fine if I attach it :P). and yea, that’s it!
Ultra gorgeous headboard was READY!!
