At this point I think it's safe to say we're all missing Disneyland. So much so we've started to get creative with ways to bring the magic to life in our own homes. Last week we saw this amazing 'Create Your Own Magic Happens Parade' printout designed by Disney Imagineers, plus we've done some pretty cool Disney-inspired DIY projects in the past with some of our shirts like the DIY Open-Back Stencil T-Shirt Cutout, or the DIY Lost Bros Facemask.
One of the most iconic parts of the Disneyland Hotel is the famous Sleeping Beauty Castle headboards, complete with lights and sounds. Today, Karissa from @karissaeverafter shared an amazing DIY Disneyland Hotel Headboard how-to guide on her Instagram and we're LIVING for it. This one is probably a more advanced DIY project, but anyone who is up for a challenge is sure to have a good time and create an amazing piece to remind you of home. Check it out below!

I’m so excited to be able to share with you how I created this fun piece for my bedroom!! You can find all the links for the supplies needed to make this headboard in my story highlight “headboard”⭐️ i hope this inspires you to create your own piece of Disney in your own home!! I created this whole piece in my tiny apartment in our guest bedroom... Home Depot and Lowe’s have the nicest employees and will help you out with anything! It’s super easy to ask them to make some wood cuts for you or to even rent a truck to take your huge piece of plywood home ✌🏼 Some notes: ⭐️Darker Stain: (2 parts) Kona by Varathane (1 part) *** please note that the color will change based on what type of wood and how many coats you use, I used Birch with two coats ⭐️lighter stain: 2 coats of Golden Oak by Varathane ⭐️polyurethane: water based matte by Varathane
Karissa KILLED this project and made it look way easier than it probably is. The bed frame is even complete with fiberoptic light strands and a soundboard that plays an instrumental version of Happily Ever After. The final product turned out AMAZING! Dare I say even better than Disneyland's?
