Kids often have a hard time parting with their favorite T-shirts even after they've outgrown them. Use their old T-shirts, sport jerseys or old blankets to create a collage of color over their bed.

The possibilities are endless with this easy and inexpensive headboard project. Use floral pattern fabrics, old concert shirts, souvenir shirts or beach towels.
paintbrush or roller
jigsaw or circular saw
hot glue gun
one full 4' x 8' sheet thin plywood (luan)
one half 4' x 4' sheet thin plywood (luan)
3 to 4 yards hook-and-loop tape
wood filler (if needed for mitered corners)
ply cap trim — two 8' pieces
Gather your T-shirts and all the needed materials. Sketch out the design and determine the size of your headboard.
Cut the full sheet of plywood close to the size of the bed, but make it a little bigger than you need just in case you have to adjust the size later, and leave enough space for trim.
Miter cut the trim pieces. Paint them and set them aside to dry. Apply a second coat if necessary.
Cut the half sheet of plywood into twelve 10" x 10" squares.
Cut the batting into twelve 11" x 11" squares. Cover each of the wood squares in batting, wrap the edges around the back and use hot glue to hold them in place.
