Bulletin board crafted for organizing meeting schedules, school exams, project deadlines, and the likes.

Approximate Time: 10-30 minutes




This bulletin board may look simple, but make sure you have adult supervision when using a sharp cutter.
  1. Trace your favorite word or name at the top part of the cork board.
  2. Using the cutter, cut around the outline of word, but making sure you don't cut off the bottom part from the rest of the cork board.
  3. Tape this to your desk, wall or bedroom door using double-sided adhesives.

A pal has decorated her bathroom in Angels. Not only do her shower curtain, bath rug, towels and wash cloths have angels on them, but she's taken a good sized bulletin board and placed on a wall. She covered the cork part in a solid color gift wrap. With using push pins for bulletin boards, she's attached assorted styles of angels that she's gotten as gifts. It's quite attractive. I've never thought of putting a bulletin board in the bathroom, before. Just another way to decorate and not just for bedrooms or kitchen areas.

I need to construct a bulletin board at least 3.5 ft. X 3.5 ft. I want to pin sewing and crafting patterns up while in use. I am also involved with class reunion organizing. I need to display newsletter layout and pictures. The board needs to be sturdy and reliable. Thanks.

Go to Lowe's or Home Depot and have them cut a thin piece of plywood to your measure. Glue 12" corkboard squares to this. I have done this for my sewing room, but used a large piece of corrugated cardboard for the backing and put it up on the wall with mirror hangers.

You can also get a tri fold Elmers' Display board that is made of some pretty sturdy cardboard.

Or, you can get foam board for 1.00 at the Dollar Trees. I hope this helps.
