This is a project that I am VERY excited about!
I thought my big open wall in my room could use some sprucing up, and I have lots of photo prints that I just had made on Shutterfly. So, I decided to create something that would not only add some color and interest, but a place to display the photographs as well!
What you’ll need:
Hot glue gun
I bought 2 packs of 4 cork tiles. I got them at a stationary store in my town, but you can also get them online, or at some art supply stores!
I then took several fabrics from home that have been used for different things throughout the years. I like that each one (for the most part) has a memory attached to it… whether it be that the fabric is from old curtains that were once in my brother’s childhood bedroom, or a fabric my mom has had for years that I used to make small pillows out of when I was little.
I cut them to size, with just a little excess fabric on each side (1-2 in), so that they can be folded behind the cork board. The nice thing about this is that the cutting does not have to be perfect, because it will be hidden!
I hot glued the edges down, and VOILA! A fabric-covered bulletin board!
As an extra little detail, I took flat push pins, and hot-glued some fun buttons on top.
I really love how they all turned out, and I think it looks really nice in my room!
