DIY fabric cork boards

Thursday, June 30, 2011

Hello ladies! 

I had a lot of questions about my DIY cork boards from this post and I'm just now getting around to uploading the pictures from when I made them!

Step One
 Start with just a plain cork board..I got a package of three from le target for cheap.

Step Two
Buy some cheap fabric..I used some that was leftover from my first giveaway which I purchased at JoAnn's Fabrics. Cut the fabric accordingly and place it around the cork board folding each corner in.

Step Three
Make sure you staple all of the sides and corners so the fabric is on tight.

Step Four

Add a decorative bow to the front to bring it all together..I used a glue gun to do this.

Step Five
Hang your cute cork board's on the wall!

I hope y'all have a fabulous holiday weekend..I have tomorrow-monday off and I plan on being poolside with a drink in my hand!
