Repurposed Pillows = Headboards

I was so excited to try another one of my bright ideas – using the lids of baby food jars to make “buttons” so that I could make a headboard with pillow!

 

 After covering the pillows, I used Mod Pogde and hot glue to adhere the burlap fabric to the lids.

     

After measuring each pillow to find the middle, I used a really strong beading thread (I think I should have used reupholstery thread) to make the X. Using hot glue, I simply stuck the buttons to the pillows and attached the pillows to the wall.

Total cost: $50!

HOWEVER – these other pillow headboards make me want to completely redo mine!
