How To: Make a Mod Dot Headboard

created at: 05/26/2011

Our friend Miki has ideas that just won't stop. Wanting a headboard, but not something heavy and permanent, she came up with this brilliant, textural, tone-on-tone solution that, literally, pops off the wall.

Any guesses as to how she pulled it off. (Hint: they're super inexpensive and quite easy to use.)   They're simple styrofoam balls from the craft store, merely cut in half, and applied with tape. I love the Braille-inspired pattern. You could make something beautiful and secret, and say something to your loved one without anyone else knowing about it. 

That's it?! That's it.
