Making a Bulletin Board

April 25, 2007

Bulletin BoardGot an old paint canvas lying around? Perhaps from a botched painting attempt? Don't toss 'em! One great way to recycle these is this:

Cover complete canvas with somewhat heavy material. Staple to the back of canvas. Hot glue ribbons in diagonal criss-crossing lines, attaching a decorative button where the ribbons intersect.


This creates an extremely useful, not to mention attractive, memo/picture board!

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.

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.
