This project was very inexpensive to make. The picture frames were all purchased at a thrift store and the headboard frame was made from scrap lumber. We spelled out "sweet dreams" and embellished each letter with flowers. Create your own personalized message or spell out your child's name.
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.
