2-Hour Easy Headboard, No Tools Required
Our next Headboard Week guest is Brandi, here to share a fabulously easy headboard that will only take you two hours and about $75 — and the building doesn’t require a single special tool! Say hello to Brandi, and then link up YOUR headboard projects at the bottom of the post!
We stay busy making changes to our home. For the past few years we’ve enjoyed updating our kitchen cabinets, giving my son’s room a new look and most recently, creating a relaxing outdoor patio.
My husband and I wanted a new headboard to brighten up our room without breaking the bank. With our limited DIY skills we created an easy headboard that fit our room.

There are a lot of ways to create your own headboard. I hope enjoyed my tutorial and you’re inspired to build your own!
Time: Approximately 2hrs plus drying time
Cost of Supplies:
TV box was old and stored in our garage- $0
burlap- $3 yard (I used 2)
snow cover blanket- (purchased on clearance) $1 per bag, I used 3
staple gun and staples- $15
Thanks for being our guest, Brandi — way to work with what you had available, and I love that it’s still holding up!

Thank you so much, Susie!
You never disappoint Brandi! GREAT project! I love the neutral cover, I think it would match wonderfully with my honey wicker:) Thanks for sharing…
I love your headboard. Using the cardboard box was very creative. Thanks for sharing this.
Hi Trish! So glad you enjoyed it. Thank you so much for commenting.
Oh Brandi, you never disappoint with your beautiful projects, but this one takes the cake!!!! A TV box? That is thinking “with the box,” lol! How gorgeous and what a great price. Top notch my dear!!! Jane
Wait! I have to comment again – snow blankets? SNOW BLANKETS? How ingenius and an incredible bargain. Between the tv box and the snow blankets, I don’t know which was a cooler idea! Let’s settle on both. Awesome! Jane
Jane, thank you so much for both comments! I was amazed that the TV was a the perfect size for our bed. The snow blankets were so inexpensive after the holiday; too good of a deal to pass on! So glad you enjoyed the tutorial.
Looks great, Brandi!
Brandi that is awesome! And the possibilities are endless! A nice pink damask fabric with white moulding would go nicely in my daughter’s room! Thanks for the DIY tutorial!
Wonderful and so thrifty. It’s amazing to see so many different headboards. Brandy, you created an awesome headboard.
Thank you kindly, Linda!
Love this idea! I want to make one for my son, but he’s in a rental and can’t make holes in the wall. How did you attach it?
