DIY Western Headboards and Alternatives

A bedroom isn’t complete without a headboard. Fortunately there are a lot of great ideas for DIY Western headboard alternatives so you don’t have to spend a ton of money to make an impact.

If you opt to stay away from traditional headboards, statement art and decor is a good option.

A cowhide rug is used on the wall and a cow skull ties it all together. No headboard necessary!

Try looking for a pair of salvaged doors to use as a headboard. This makes a nice solution for a rental too, no nail holes required. Just hang your decor on doors.

Love rustic wood? Head on out to the woods and make this headboard by assembling wooden pieces.

Less is more. Ropes and photos are simple but charming.

Add feminine accents like white curtains to a girl’s room and hang a cow skull to tie in a glamorous Western theme.

Small rugs with bold prints make great headboards.
