STEPS(S):
  • For the mattress
  • We will use five pieces of foam board: One 15x31 cm, Two 15x4 cm, and Two 31x4 cm
  • Place a 15 x 4 cm piece at the head of the bed
  • Then place the second 15 x 4 cm piece at the foot of the bed
  • Place the 31x4 cm pieces on either side
  • Reinforce the joins of the bed by placing glue on the inside borders
  • For the headboard and the foot-board I am using a template I drew.

  • Copy the template unto the foam board
  • Cut
  • To give the headboard and foot-board color you can paint or use scrap-booking paper
  • Cover the borders of the bed using rope or ribbon
  • And decorate using scrap-booking paper, plastic gems, stickers and fabric paint.
  • Attach the headboard and the foot-board to the bed
  • For the covers I used a piece of fabric and glued on ribbon on three sides
