Your bedroom is your sanctuary. It's your duty to curate and customize it any way you want. This means throwing colors together and choosing furniture that actually speaks to you and that you get to live in. Since you spend a lot of time on your bed, it should be comfortable enough to accommodate you. Having a bed frame is important for back support and elevation, and erecting a headboard just ties the whole look together. If you don't already have a headboard, then buying one would be a little bit on the expensive side. However, you can upgrade your bedroom with a DIY headboard on a Dollar Tree budget by just joining together gardening fences and screwing them into your wall.

Headboards are pretty expensive to buy, especially if you're going for quality wooden or leather ones. You could be shelling out over $200 just for a good one from IKEA. Then there's the labor involved in painting it and customizing it to suit your needs. By the time all that is done, it would have left a huge dent in your bank account. We believe that you deserve the bed of your dreams without having to break the bank for some gorgeous accessories. TikTok thrift hack creator @dazzlingdiscounts thought up a brilliant way to get a statement headboard piece for your bedroom for just a few dollars and minimum work.

Experiment with the headboard styles and installation

Everyone has their own tastes and aesthetics when it comes to designing their bedroom. The great thing about this DIY headboard hack is that garden fences come in so many different designs that it is guaranteed that you'll find the perfect one to suit your dream look. You'd have to get the fences from Dollar Tree at the store, but you're not limited to them. Amazon has a great selection of fences of different designs for tens of dollars.

Once you've found the perfect fence design, it's time to get to work. You'll need a bundle of zip ties and a power drill. TikTok creator @dazzlingdiscounts first locks the fences together as you normally would before zip-tying them together in four rows of three. Cut the excess zip ties off and position them, and then drill your masterpiece into the wall where you want the headboard to be.

Of course, this is just the basic process, and you should totally customize the headboard. You can add more rows and more columns to the fence if you want something more eye-catching. You can also paint the fences using spray paint and add any extra designs you want. It's your room and your space to play with.
