Make a template for your head board.. You can either make it out of MMF as long as you let it air dry for a couple of days.. Or use royal icing for the whole thing or just for accents.. Also I've seen someone use cookies.. They just overlapped them and "glued" (royal icing) together. It came out pretty neat.. Good Luck!

not sure what you are looking for exactly, but check out the one in my photos. It doesn't have a headboard, but I would do exactly what briansbaker is suggesting. This was made from a standard cake pan, and covered with fondant. The quilt was made with an impression mat...(good thing it's not an up close photo or you'd know it was my first attempt with an impression mat). Made the pillows by covering a bunch of mmf with mmf pillowcases and sprinkled with the wilton sparkles....If I can help in any way, just let me know. Looking forward to seeing a photo of yours....Good Luck! icon_smile.gif

You can always fashion the headboard from cardboard and cover it in MMF.
