How do you tuft an existing headboard?

Insert a 3/4-inch metal screw into a small washer and drill a screw through the fabric, into the headboard until the tuft is as deep as you desire. Start slow with the drill to prevent the screw from ripping the fabric. Continue tufting the fabric with the screws until all of your tufts are complete.

Thread one of the buttons onto the floss, and send the needle back through the center of the pillow, just to the side of the first stitch.
