Spice up your space: Ribbon picture board


 
Just cover your old bulletin board with a fun fabric and pretty ribbons to make a great place to stick notes and photos without them getting bent or poked with tacks!

What You’ll Need:

1 old bulletin board
Fabric
Batting
Ribbon
Thumb tacks
Staple gun or duct tape


What You’ll Do:

1. Lay the fabric face down and cover it with a layer of batting.
2. Center the bulletin board on the batting and use a staple gun (or strong duct tape) to attach the fabric to the back. Staple one side then pull it tight and staple the opposite side.
3. Cut off excess fabric with a pair of scissors.
4. Turn the board over and arrange pieces of ribbon in a crisscross pattern across the board.
5. Insert flat thumb tacks at the intersections to keep it in place.

6. Attach the ribbons to the back of the board with hot glue.
 
Gift it! You can find small squares of cork board at craft stores and office supply stores. Pick up a few for your closest friends, plus some fabric, ribbon and batting, and make a montage of memories.
