 i was watching Wendy from She's Crafty on tv, she made this great headboard for a bed out of a board covered with this beautiful fabric; she did not need to sew anything; she simply measured the board to the bed's width and measured and cut some fabric, wrapped the fabric tightly around the board and glued around the rectangular parameters' edges on the oppositive side of the board. 

and then, she hot glued some buttons that she covered with the  same fabric onto the front of the board and placed it against the wall behind the bed to make it look like a beautiful headboard that you would buy in a furniture store.

i really like this crafty project; it is so easy to make and it is a thrifty item

I've never done it, but that sounds like a great project to do! If you do end up making this, you should post pics :)

That's what I wanted to do to my bed, but we bought one already done. The next one I want to make like that.

I made a headboard like this a couple of years ago!  It was really easy and I made a jewelry holder to match for my earrings:)
