I've wanted to make a fabric board for ages; its just the spot to display party invitations, bills, vouchers, cards, shopping lists and so on and on!
You can use a corkboard for this project, but I chose an inexpensive art canvas instead as the whole thing is covered in wadding anyway. I bought a metre of fabric, 6m of ribbon (I ended up needing 20cm more and had to make a trip back - doh!) and a bag of wadding.
Basically, you just stretch the wadding and fabric over the canvas and staple it into place on the back, folding the corners as you would do a Christmas pressie. Then, starting at each horizontal you stretch and staple the ribbon on the back of the canvas. I have often seen these boards with a button or pin stuck onto each ribbon junction which holds the ribbons firmly in place, but I didn't bother. I like mine just the way is! There are plenty of more elaborate tutorials out there if you are interested in making one, like this one. And wouldn't it make a fabulous gift? Now I've made one, I want to make lots and give them away!
I showed my creation to my husband and his comment was... "it's very bright?!"
Is it too bright?
Have a lovely week... do visit back, I have lots going on that I want to share!!
