Amie made a bed-head

She beat me to it! She’s like a machine!

Yes we both bought new beds (oh and our Mum did too!), so we’re all on the bed-head-making bandwagon…

So, Amie has done hers in hessian. Yep, hessian. I haven’t seen it close up but knowing her it would be awesome and dramatic. I doubt these photos do it justice.

I can see that with this bed-head she got a piece of foam cut. Last time we made one (see the picture below), we actually used wadding (stuff you put in quilts) bought from Spotlight.

Still love that bedroom… sigh. I wanted to take everything home with me. Especially that pillow. Will be a life long love of mine!

Ok, back to Amie’s bed-head… she got a piece of MDF board cut, a piece of foam, the fabric and then stapled it around it tight… and DONE!

It really is the easiest thing to make.

Love the layered rugs, and funky cushions. Very cool.


When she was purchasing the fabric the lady asked “what are you making?” and Amie told her what she was creating.

The lady said “wow, we had a run on bed-heads when that tv show The Block was on. You know those 2 sisters made a bed-head. Did you watch it?

Amie smiled and nodded but didn’t say that was me. She grabbed her stuff and headed of laughing to herself. Hilarious! That happens to us all the time 😉


I have bought some sample fabrics for my own bed-head and am waiting for them to arrive. I’m leaning to the aqua (your votes told me so!).


Today I’m off to have brunch with school mum’s. We’ve been doing that on Tuesdays. Eggs Benedict here I come!

Have a great day. X

    Thanks for sharing….we have had that on the to do list, but didn’t quite know what to use for wadding 🙂

  • Mary

    Looks great! Have been meaning to make one myself! Where are you getting your fabric from? LOVE Amies cushions!

      I’m ordering mine online (I think). Am waiting for some samples to arrive.

    Hi Katrina. Have you thought about designing your own fabric for your bedhead? A computer and design wizz like you would have no trouble whipping up your chevron design.

    Have a look here

    I love the idea of Amie’s hessian. It does need a cocky cushion though 😉

      Thanks Jo! I’ll check it out!! x

    I’m going to give this a whirl! Now just to find the fabric 🙂

  • Julie

    I can’t wait to see your bed head. I need to make one for our guest room.
    This is the sign (lol) I will have to do soon.
    Thank you for the inspiration.

    Hi Katrina
    I loved your bedroom on “The Block” and have been inspired to make a bed head. Just a little question – Did you attach the bed head to the wall or bed or is it just leaning against the wall? Cheers Melissa

      Hi Melissa, it’s actually just leaning against the wall because we really didn’t want holes in the wall. You can put brackets on the bedhead that tuck under the bed frame to keep it from falling on you. 🙂

    Hi Katrina,
    I like the simplicity of your bedhead as you use a solid sheet of MDF – top to floor.
    What do you recommend I do as I have powerpoints behind the bed that are necessary to use.
    Should I just cut out a section of the MDF to accomodate the powerpoints or do I need to make the bedhead shorter in height and suspend from wall. I’m not that keen on the later because I dont want to make holes in the wall.The house will be going on the market soon.
