Start your pattern almost one strip width in from the top of the cardboard. Take it to the other end and fold the tape over the back of the cardboard. Continue making stripes all the way across the cardboard.
Place border around the edge of the headboard. Go over the edge of the cardboard so you can fold over 1/4 inch.
We added the word "Go" to the center of our headboard. To create your own message, find the middle point on the headboard and work out on both sides, making sure the width and length of the letters are the same.
Use small wire nails to attach the headboard to the wall. Place a piece of same-colored duct tape over the nail head to cover it.
