With the size of 500 x 500 pixels and set its foreground color to #393943 and background color to #100e19. Fill its background with a radial gradient. Press Ctrl+J to duplicate the background layer. To apply it pattern overlay layer style double clicks on the background copy layer. Now change its blend mode to multiply, opacity at 70%, and scale at 25%. Use pattern with playing around with the value. Other layer mode set soft light, vivid light, and color dodge. But here you can choose another one if you think that will better than this. Pick the rectangular marquee tool and click the options bar and set the style for fixing its size. Now fix it 50 percent both of the sides as width and height.
