Place the card stock and the glass in the frame and secure in place. Thread ribbon through each eye bolt, then tie in middle. Make the ribbon on each frame the exact same size.
Make the headboard frame from wooden boards. Cut two boards at 50 inches each for the horizontal pieces, and two boards at 60 inches each for the vertical side pieces. If necessary, paint the wood. Attach the horizontal and vertical pieces together on the back side using L-brackets.
Lay out the picture frames in your desired locations. Pull ribbon to center and mark where nail will go on the horizontal pieces. Hammer nails into your marked locations.
Secure the wood frame to wall and nail into studs. Countersink the nails, then cover with wood putty and paint. Hang picture frames from the nails.
