How to Create a Faux Wrought-Iron Headboard Easily and Inexpensively


Certain home-design projects are far too complicated for your limited skills. Creating a faux wrought-iron headboard is not one of them. This process is extremely simple, takes almost no time or effort, and the final result might astound you. Gather together your supplies and get ready to change the look and feel of your bedroom.

Things You'll Need

  • Pencil
  • Paper
  • Tape measure
  • Electrical tape
  • Draw the design for your faux wrought-iron headboard with a pencil on a sheet of paper. Try to keep the lines somewhat straight and simple, just like a real wrought-iron headboard would be.

  • Transfer your design to the wall behind your bed using the pencil and a tape measure, measuring the spaces between "rungs" carefully to ensure everything is spaced out evenly.

  • Apply pieces of electrical tape to the surrounding lines you traced and to the rungs in the middle of the design.

  • Fill in the rest of the design by cutting and applying pieces of electrical tape.

  • Stand back and confirm that everything looks even and to your satisfaction. If one piece seems a little off, simply pull it up and replace it. When you're finished, from far enough away, it will look like there's a real wrought-iron headboard in the room.
