Cushion Headboard (DIY)




Hello everyone, every year, I like to make little changes in my room just to make it feel more fresh and stylist, but this year I decided to make more than just little changes, I redesign my entire room! As a person, I like changes, I believe making good changes in your life is healthy and let's be honest, sometimes you get bored of seeing the same thing over and over again. Unless you're marry and etc, that would be a different story. but either way, changes are good. This year, I've decided to paint my room white to bright it up more and let the sun light and air in to give it a fresh and comfortable enviament. Since I really liked the way the room looks and feels with the white, I decided that my furniture should be white as well just to blend everything together and make the colors from books and different little details pop more. Once everything was done, the wall by my bed was giving me a little of a plain feeling. I was thinking of maybe getting photo frames or paint the wall again with other color, but then I found a photo of a nice Cushion Headboard and I thought that it would be a great way to add color to my room. But then I saw the price tag and I wasn't too sure if i was gonna get it. But while staring at it for a while, I told myself " I can do one just like that myself". and for the reason of this post, I did! Not gonna lie, It did took me around two days to finish project because I wasn't too sure of how much fabric to use and end up running out of it on the first day and had to go back to the store to get more. but pretty sure you can finish it in just one day. No further do, here's what you need to create this amazing Cushion Headboard.

Headboard Size:

6 FT W X 3 FT H
(Remember you can add or remove pillows to fit your desire size)

What You Need:

-2 yards of fabric of each color
     (1 yard will be enough for only two pillows, so get as many as you need)
  Colors: White, Grey, Blue, Green
     (You can pick any color of your choice)
-3 to 4 Fiberfill bags
      (Get as much as you can, remember the more you fill them, the more comfortable they will be)
- Sewing Machine or Fabric Blue
- Thread of each color (If Sewing)
- Safety Pins (If using Fabric Blue)
- 6 Screws (Or depending on size desire)

Instructions: 

1. Cut 2 of 19 inch x 19 inch square of fabric for each pillow
       (Cut as many as you need of each color, Myself, needed 4 whites, 4 blues, 4 greens, 3 greys)
    Cut 6 inch x 2 1/2 inch of fabric of each desire color.

2. Once you have all your pillows cut, it's time to sew them or blue them together.

    If Sewing - Get the right color thread and take two of the same color fabric and face them together and sew 1/2 inch in, around the 3 sides of the fabric and don't forget to leave a 7 inch opening on the 4th side for filling. once done, flip the fabric inside-out through the 7 inch opening you left for filling. 

    If Bluing -  Blue 1/2 inch in, around the 3 side of the fabric and also don't forget to leave a 7 inch opening on the 4th side for filling. You might need to use a fair about of blue for better resistance. Once done, let it dry and then flip the fabric inside-out through the 7 inch opening you left for filling.

3. Fill you pillows with Fiberfill
    (Add as much as you want)

4. Once you have all your pillows filled, decide where they are going to go.
    (Suggest to lay it out on the floor and pick and choose where each pillow is gonna go)

5. Once you decide where the pillows are gonna go, it's time to sew or blue again!
    
      If Swing - Flip the sides of the opening of the pillow 1/2 inch in, and sew using the white thread. Do this to all of the rest of the pillows. Once done, Sew each pillow into each other 1/2 inch in, on each side of each pillow. Make sure when you're sewing, the sewing is left on the back face of the pillows. 

     If Bluing - Flip the sides of the opening of the pillow 1/2 inch in, and blue them. Do this to all of the rest of the pillows. Once done, blue each pillow into each other 1/2 inch in, on each side of each pillow. Re-Enforce the bluing by pinning two or more safety pins on each side of the pillows.
