I have gathered a few bulletin boards recently. But unless they are dressed up a little, they don’t really suit my decor.
To make this memo board, I started with a regular bulletin board. I cut it in half with an exacto knife. I drew a line down then center and then I found it was easier to make heavier, repeated, score marks along the line rather than trying to saw with the knife.
I then cut a piece of chocolate brown burlap that was little larger on each side then my piece of bulletin board. I then began stapling it on with my staple gun, pulling tight as I went.
I did one side at a time, then the opposite one.
|Here is the front side with the burlap on and undecorated.|
Here is the finished product:
I hot glued some lace at the top and the bottom as a well a rosette that is made out of sheet music. The little flowers are punched out of a vintage dictionary.
The pictures I have displayed on it are of my dad as a child and my grandmother when she was younger.
This was a fairly simple project to do and adds that something special to an ordinary bulletin board.
