Got 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!

Wait! If you paint you can cover the canvas with gesso and paint over it. Artists do this all the time because canvas is expensive.

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