Create the padding for your headboard by cutting the foam in the same shape as your headboard but you should make it an inch longer on all sides. Attach it to the plywood using a staple gun or spray adhesive.

Iron your fabric in order to avoid wrinkles or creases, and then cut it in to size. Start from the top, wrap the fabric around the headboard and secure it to the back using your staple gun. You can continue until the entire piece of fabric is secured. Don’t forget to pull the fabric taut in each time. You can enjoy your do it yourself headboard.
