Curtain Rod Headboard

Are you looking for a headboard to complete your bedroom? Most headboards are a few hundred dollars. But most of us don’t have a few hundred dollars to spend on a HEADBOARD at the moment, like myself.

So, here is a cute, easy, and cheap way to accomplish this.


Things you will need:

  • a curtain rod
    • Note: Hardware is normally included with this, but you may need 2 brackets and few nails/screws, etc.
  • 2 sheer curtains (I chose a white sheer curtain)
    • Note: the length of the curtains depends on how high would would like the “headboard” to be
  • Christmas lights (I used Christmas lights with a white strand)
  • Level: to make sure your curtain rod is set properly and evenly on your wall
  • Hammer or Drill


  • Use your level and mark where you would like your headboard to be on your wall
    • attach hardware to wall
  • Put curtains on the curtain rod
  • String Christmas lights on the curtain rod
  • Hang curtain rod on the hardware you attached to the wall
  • Plug in christmas lights
  • And you are done! 🙂

I spent around $30 for all of this and it took me about 30 minutes to do. Try this project out and leave your feedback below!
