Creative Home Bulletin Board Ideas

It seems with every mail order there is some type of protection for your delivery. This last delivery, had 2 perfectly square Styrofoam sheets in the box. These two beauties will now become memory boards. This is a super easy and thrifty repurposed project!



  • Styrofoam square
  • fabric
  • ribbon
  • glue gun
  • scissors
  • tacks


  1. Take your squares and cut fabric to size (like wrapping a gift).
  2. Glue down seams and folds, trimming access for a cleaner look.
  3. With your ribbon, start from one corner crossing to the other opposite corner, using your glue gun to secure your ribbon to the back of the board. Do this 2 to 3 more times.
  4. Now run your ribbon in the opposite direction underneath the top layer of ribbon, making sure it is long enough to glue around to the back.
  5. After you have the diagonal look, place a tack in the center of each diamond, pressing down firmly.
  6. Put in favorite notes and pictures and display!

My daughter has had this bulletin board for very many years. She keeps it so pretty by using felt shapes under the pins she uses. She prefers to use the pins that have colorful beads on the end of them. Isn't it cute? She also uses little jewelry decorations to decorate her board. The board looks so cheerful and happy. I love to look at this board everyday.

I added a "mini" bulletin board above my computer screen. To make the small bulletin board, I covered a long strip of scrap foam with fabric using my glue gun.

In my office, I don't have any room for a bulletin board. So I use my pull up/down window blind for the same purpose as a bulletin board, but with tape instead of pushpins.
