Fabric Bulletin Board

I have seen fabric covered bulletin boards many times and always thought they looked like they would be fun to make. So here is my version.

First I started with this yard sale find. It was a very faded Monet print in a very pretty frame. I simply removed the print, matting, and glass.

I chose this fun fabric for the bulletin board.

Here are some of the materials I used.

I probably should have used a different kind of paint. While I like the color, it took four or five coats to cover the old color.

I wrapped the batting and the fabric around the cardboard that was already in the frame. Once I had it lined up straight, I stapled it all the way around. Use the smaller staples or they will go all the way through and show on your finished project. Insert the fabric-covered board into the frame and that is it.

You are then ready to hang it.
