When I first saw these awesome 14″ square wall art pieces from Cut It Out, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them! I think they’d look incredible as a large mirror or art piece, but I had even bigger plans for them – a headboard! A DIY vintage sheet headboard, to be specific.
To make our headboard, I laid out 15 of the squares in a 3×5 pattern, and used .25″ x 1.5″ strips of wood to attach them all together. I could have made this project a zillion times easier by using my nail gun to attach the frames directly to our wall, but I know that we are the World’s Most Indecisive Couple (especially when it comes to bedroom decor!). By making the smaller frames into a single larger frame, we are able to easily change out the fabric/paper/etc. to switch up the look of our space as often as we like!
I cut squares of white foam core to fit snugly inside of the openings in the back of the frames. I knew that I wanted to back my headboard with a vintage sheet, but I didn’t want to cut the sheet in case I want to use it for something else later.
The foam squares hold the sheet in place against the front of each frame opening without having to cut the sheet. I laid the sheet across the back of the headboard, pressed the foam squares into place, and neatly folded the excess sheet around the edges, securing the folds with a few staples into the wood strips.

A huge thank you to Cut It Out for providing me with the incredible wood cut out frames to make this headboard! ♥
