Learn how to DIY your own colorful boho headboard using embroidery hoops and your favorite colors!
GUESS WHAT YOU GUYS?!? I made a headboard! Okay, well… not really, but I did make an “above the bed” decoration type thing and it makes me feel super coordinated.
And before you ask, yes. That is a twin size bed. Yes I sleep in it – at nearly 32 years old – every night. No, I don’t share it, well, except with the cat, but she sleeps on top of me usually. Would I like a bigger bed? Yes. But this one suits my needs and my space just fine for now.
The wall space above the bed is a weird thing. Headboards can get kinda pricey and, since I live in earthquake friendly California, I didn’t want to hang up anything heavy that could possibly fall on me and re-enact a scene from final destination or something. Yes, morbid things. MOVING ON! So… after nearly 6 years and many many iterations and color scheme changes and pinterest boards – I finally put something up. And really, I’m a bit in love!
For this headboard all I used were some different sized embroidery hoops and coordinating embroidery floss. And then some nails for hanging.

This technique is pretty simple and also a really cool way to use those embroidery hoops I planned on using for cross stitching – and never used. Go figure.

Simply separate the hoops, wrap, reassemble and hang.
You can’t really see it, but I also have a navy blue feature wall, and some teal/green IKEA bins to hold craft supplies, so thats where those colors came from. I’ve never been one for matchy-matching but I think it holds up without being too in your face.
