Make a DIY Upholstered Headboard – What You Need

It's an easy DIY upholstered headboard tutorial that anyone can do. Here at Anyfoam, we have what you need when it comes to headboard foam. We’re going to outline the steps you need to take so that you can see how easy it is to make your own custom headboard. Here’s what you need:

  • Plywood cut to size (approx 1/2" thick)
  • Polyurethane upholstery foam
  • Batting aka polyfibre/dacron
  • Spray adhesive glue
  • Fabric of your choice

If you don’t want to cut your plywood yourself, you can ask your local timber provider to cut it. Be sure that it measures as wide as your bed, and the height should be in keeping with your preference.

Your next step is to source upholstery foam. Here at Anyfoam, we supply quality headboard foam sheets or cut to size, which you can order on our foam cut to size page. To secure the fabric over the foam and attach it to the plywood, you’ll need batting of two inches wide. You’ll need to mount the headboard foam to the plywood using the spray adhesive. Once the glue is dry, now lay the batting over the foam and secure it using staples.

Next, you’ll need to add the fabric of your choice by laying it over the batting and securing it in place with staples. The corners will need to be folded so they look neat and the fabric pulled tight. Use the nailhead trim to finish the look of your headboard. Line it up and attach it around the outer edges. You can use a small rubber mallet to help you affix the trim to the headboard foam.

Congratulations, new headboard owner! See, it’s far easier than it may sound, and once you’ve completed a project like this, you can then move on to more complicated and challenging DIY projects.
