Lately we are seeing how there is an emerging fashion that grows by leaps and bounds, so much that it can no longer be called even fashion, right now it is a full-fledged trend, and that trend is precisely the decorate, create or manufacture our own headboards for the bed.
Original, extravagant, eye-catching headboards, made with a thousand and one different material, some difficult to make other very simple, some expensive, but most totally free since this trend has joined another trend, to use old elements and recycle them to create new furniture, such as use old doors to turn them into headboards.
And as we see that this trend does not stop expanding and every day you suggest us and ask us to bring you new ideas to make an original headboard, we have prepared a great collection of more than 60 photos of original headboards, made from fabrics, even wood, painting, quilts, cushions, shelves, plaster, wallpaper, tapestries, carpets, vinyl … and dozens of other items that have served to create these impressive and original headboards.
So without further delay here you have this great collection of more than 60 modern and original headboards.
Photography and project BMK Study
Well, actually, here the headboard is already made, it is the turquoise one, but the geometric wallpaper behind it is the idea I wanted to show. We can put a wallpaper that covers the width of the bed on the wall behind it, to easily create a headboard of the most original, if we do not want to use a traditional one, or, as we see above these lines, even if we use it .
Sugar and Cloth Project
With a metallic vinyl on a wooden base. We need a wooden board, smooth and cut to the measure that we want, that acts as a headboard, to then put an iridescent vinyl, or metal, or the finish that we like and have an original headboard made by ourselves, in an easy and economical way.
Project I Spy Diy
With recycled wood, creating a spike pattern, or whatever we want. This idea to make a headboard is more elaborate, but equally economical and in a weekend we can finish it.
Project Sarah Sherman Samuel

Another idea is to make a headboard with bedside tables and shelf. What is much you think? Well no, it’s simpler, faster and cheaper than you imagine. Here you can see how to do it.
One of my favorites for its versatility. With paint, paint a surface that covers the width of the bed and the height as a traditional headboard would. The good thing about this idea is that we can add any color and create a very powerful decorative accent.
Dorsey Designs project
Upholstered with denim and capitoné fabric. It is handmade, and we can do it ourselves by seeing how it is done here. It is true that it is more elaborate, but if you like it, it is worth it.
A Beautiful Mess Project
With wood, to which a word is drilled and a word or phrase is created, and then lights are added to make it shine. You can see this tutorial here.
House Sparrow Nesting project
More easy. Well, simple if you buy the macramé tapestry already made and you just have to hang it. If you have to do the tapestry yourself, it may not be so simple anymore, but it’s still equally beautiful.

Another painted headboard, but this one of traditional geometric form, square or rectangular, with a blank strip that delimits the areas of the headboard.
If you like the idea of painting a headboard, here is another. Very subtle, but effective. You know, less is more.
If you have the headboard wall of the bed painted in slate paint, and you want to make an original headboard, the ideal would be to use that wall to paint a real custom headboard.

Easier yet. Instead of two doors, one, but placed horizontally to cover the width of the bed.

With pallet woods, you join them to form a large surface as you want, and then paint or write on the wood the phrase or words you prefer. In this case, they have opted for something very traditional but with power: love.
Another idea to make a headboard is to use an appropriate tree branch from which to then hang flower petals. Ideally, the petals should be plastic, synthetic, so you don’t have to replace them every week. Although if you prefer real petals, no one prevents you.
Project By Dawn Nicole
Again, with a door, but vintage cut, painted white worn, and to which put two rustic sconces, one on each side, to free the bedside tables of lamps.
With a pallet, first sanitized and painted white, to which then add two cushions of the color and design we want.
With a macramé tapestry, wider, but less long. If you like to make macramé you can design a headboard of the most original and personalized. In addition, this material goes very well with the current decorative styles.
