Step 1: Supplies
- A milk crate
- A fabric remnant, about two feet square ·
- A can of spray glue
- A two foot square piece of quilt batting
- One sheet (or a partial sheet) of foam board
- Four cable ties
Step 2: Trace Crate
Begin by tracing the outline of the crate onto the foam board. Make sure to get the hole in the crate as well. Then using the foam board you just cut, cut fabric approximately two inches larger than it.
Step 3: Attach Cable Ties
Make tiny slits in the foam board in the four corners that line up with the milk crate and insert cable ties into slits
Step 4: Flip and Spray
Flip to the front and spray with spray glue, but make sure you are ready to act fast as this stuff works fast. (I would have my fabric already ready to go)
Step 5: Attach Fabric
Fabric should be laying down with the printed side facing down and the side your going to glue on the foam board up. place sprayed foam board on fabric and smooth edges around the foam board.
Step 6: Attach to Milk Crate
Using the zip ties you attached earlier attach the foam board to the milk crate be sure that you have it where you want it as cable ties are impossible to get undone so if you mess up you have to start over with new cable ties.
