Continue Adding Webbing

Repeat the above step, adding two more horizontal strips of webbing, leaving approximately 1 foot between each strip.

Weave Webbing

Starting at the upper left corner of the headboard, staple one strip of webbing to the top of the frame vertically. Weave the webbing strip over and under horizontal strips of webbing and staple to bottom of frame. Repeat using two other strips of webbing, spacing the strips approximately 1 foot apart vertically.

Apply Felt Padding

Measure felt padding to cover the length and width of the headboard frame and cut to size. Staple felt padding to headboard using a staple gun and cut off excess.
