DIYable: Hawaiian quilt wall hanging headboard

You can make a wall hanging like this using black and white felt on a black blanket. (Or throw some color in there.)

Fabric glue is very happy with felt, but if you're ambitious you could machine applique. See a similar idea here.

A Hawaiian template similar to the one in the photo is available from The Purl Bee.

    I'm with Caroline, I'm not brave enough to tackle this, but it's beautiful

    That's very unique. It seems like anything can be a headboard, if you just get creative enough!
