Duct tape comes in a variety of colors and patterns, and it is readily available at most craft stores — kids love it! A roll costs about $3 to $4 and you’ll need about three to four rolls to make a headboard for a twin bed. You should be able to get a large piece of cardboard for free at a grocery or home improvement store.
Materials and Tools:
duct tape — 3 to 4 rolls in different colors and patterns
large piece of cardboard
4 to 6 wire size (small) nails
Measure the area behind the bed to determine the size of the headboard.
Create Your Design
Draw out your headboard’s design on paper. Determine what colors and patterns to use.
Measure and cut the cardboard to fit the size of the headboard.
