DIY Bulletin Board

I needed an "Inspirational Bulletin Board." I have so many magazine tear-outs just waiting to become my next renovation and I like to "see" the entire scheme together. I like cohesiveness.  My problem was the size of bulletin board that I needed. I could not find what would work in any of my stores, so I made my own today.

Thank you Centsational Girl for the inspiration.

This is what you need:
1 artist's canvas
1 roll of cork
Fabic
Ribbon
Glue, Staple Gun, Picture Hanging Hardware

Roll out the cork and cut it to the size of your canvas.  I used a combination of Elmer's glue and spray glue to attach the cork to the backside of the canvas.

Lay something heavy on top of the cork so it can dry flat. You might have to hot glue the edges down, I did not need to.

After the cork has dried. Wrap you canvas with your fabric. I used burlap. I used an electric staple gun to attach the burlap.  Be sure to pull the fabric tight and staple on the backside of the canvas, tucking corners smooth & tight. Next, embellish the border with ribbon. I used hot glue to attach the ribbon. Lastly, I screwed two hook eyes and ran picture frame wire for hanging.

Sorry for the blurry picture. I am having THE WORST camera Mojo these days. Like seriously!
