DIY Headboard

With a few basic materials from an art supply store, design editor Joel Bray created this graphic webbed headboard. To make your own, simply staple lengths of cotton tape to a stretcher frame in an evenly-spaced vertical pattern, then weave strips of tape horizontally to form a neat grid, securing as you go. Joel mounted his headboard using standard picture hangers, and finished off the look with a complementary striped pillow.
