A new queen-size headboard can be quite costly, especially from a furniture store. However, a store-bought headboard is unnecessary when many more options exist. Homemade wall-mounted varieties are far more unique than anything available from furniture retailers. Try these homemade headboard ideas for a queen-size bed, and create a unique bedroom furnishing that is sure to impress. Best of all, these easy and impressive wall-mounted headboards will save money over store-bought options.
Create a Homemade Headboard with Wrought Iron Wall Art
Any form of large wall art can be used as a homemade headboard for a queen-size bed, but wrought iron is especially impressive. If wrought iron will work with the style of the bedroom, buy the appropriate number of pieces to span the wall along the head of the bed. Extra-large half circles can be placed together to create a homemade circular headboard for a queen-size bed. Rectangular or square pieces can be place together or inches apart to fit the width. The headboard options and styles are limitless, and wall hangings can always be repurposed if a new look is ever desired.
Wrap Stretched Canvases with Fabric or Paper
A colorful homemade headboard can be made for a queen-size bed using stretched canvases and a few simple items. Buy blank stretched canvases from a craft store along with enough fabric or wallpaper to cover them. Wrap the canvases in the same manner as a gift would be wrapped, and mount the canvases at the head of the queen-size bed. Consider combining a variety of solid colors and a single design. Choose fabric or paper with a pattern and solid colors that pick up hues in the patterned paper. Alternate the solid and patterned art when mounting it. The results are a unique homemade queen-size headboard unlike anything found in furniture stores.
Wrap Cardboard Tubes for a Unique Homemade Headboard
Cardboard gift wrap tubes can be used for far more than children’s crafts. When looking for ways to create a homemade queen-size headboard, consider wrapping enough cardboard gift wrap tubes to span the wall at the head of the bed. Use fabric or wallpaper for best results. No one will guess this innovative queen-size headboard was made from cardboard tubing. Hang the lightweight tubes with peel and stick Velcro squares, and create a unique and affordable headboard that will beautifully highlight almost any queen-size bed.
