DIY Fabric Corkboard

How to make a fabulous fabric covered bulletin board!

Step 1: You'll need fabric of your choice, a stapler, and a cork/bulletin board.
I scored this framed beauty at Hobby Lobby for half off!cork 1
Step 2: Lay out your fabric face down and place the cork board backing on top for a stencil

Step 3: Cut a once inch border around your stencil

Step 4: Start to wrap the fabric onto the back of your cork board.
Line it up with how you want the fabric to be displayed on the front

Step 5: Once your fabric's lined up, make sure to pull the ends tight and fold them onto the back.
Staple the fabric to the backing as close to the edge as possible. This will ensure it stays tight.

Step 6: Once you get to a corner you'll notice it will have extra fabric,
Cut this at an angle and staple the loose end to the board

Step 7: Cut off the excess fabric, but make sure to leave a little bit left after the staple.

Step 8: This is what your finished backing should look like

Step 9: Place the cork board back into the frame and you're finished!
Add some decorative push pins or use stud earrings to place on your fabulous new board!

I'm still debating what color I should paint the frame ... any thoughts?

  2. I bought that same frame from Hobby Lobby in the spring for my little sister in my sorority! I wish I would've known how to decorate the cork board...I simply just gave it to her. Clearly, I'm really creative.

    Happy Friday!
