Tufted and Tissue Tutorials!

Tufted fabric headboards are very popular right now and I've had several customers who have told me they made their own fabric headboards. Here is one tutorial for making your own tufted headboard using plywood, foam padding, fabric and buttons.

A couple of customers have asked me about these pompoms in the shop:I got instructions to make these gift tissue paper roses from Sandy at shabbystreamside studio, here's the link:

They were also used in a post at LaurieAnna's Vintage Home showing an incredible barn transformation she did for a wedding reception shown in these pics:


  1. Very creative.. Wow! I would love to learn more of that have my kids do it for themselves as well. Thanks for sharing this...

  2. I love doing this kind of job since I am not that creative enough to design I am grateful to have your post as my resources.
