This project is quick, easy, and cute for your room.

Step 1: Supplies

Here's what you'll need.

Old bulletin board

Quilter's batting (This is not really necessary, it just makes it look a little better.)



Thumbtacks (Decorative or flat work best.)

Hot glue gun

Step 2: Batting

You may want to take off the wooden edges, but this is optional. First, cover the top surface of the board with the batting.

Step 3: Fabric

Cut a piece of fabric that has an extra 2 inches on all sides and lay it over the batting. Carefully flip over the board and glue the fabric up on the edge.

Step 4: Ribbon

I made one of these once! So fun! Great tutorial :)

Thx! The old boards I had were so shabby, and I'm also re-decorating my room, so it was a fun little project.
