Quick Bulletin Board Project

My daughter, Madison, called last week and said, “Mom I need to come home this weekend because I have some crafts to make for my Sorority Sister…. and since you have a glue gun and stuff…” Yea, I knew how it was going to go… I was going to be making crafts and Madison was going to be watching me!

One of the items she wanted to make was a bulletin board.  We made a quick trip to Joanne’s for some fabric, batting, nail heads, ribbon, bulletin board and “things we glued to the top of the tack” (I have no idea what you call them!) ha!


This was so simple… I forgot to take pictures as we were making it.

1.  Lay out your fabric and your batting (face down). Fabric first, then batting.
2.  Lay your board over the fabric and batting (front face down).
3.  Pull tightly and staple fabric and batting to the back of the bulletin board.
4.  Trim fabric and batting on the back of the board.
5.  Lay out ribbons and staple them to the back of the board.
6.  Stable where ribbons cross.
7.  Push in a nail head right next to the staple so the staple does not show.
8.  Add a ribbon to the top to hang.
9.  Using a hot glue gun, glue an “imbellishment” (is that what you call them???) to the top of a tack.

That’s it!

Up Close and Personal

My “embellishments” that I hot glued to the top of the tacks.

  4. Wow..love this bulletin board. I know how the craft weekends to or how the craft supplies leave the house. My two oldest children, daughter and son, are both away at school. My daughter is a junior majoring in Music Education and is part of a professional music fraternity…that means making paddles for her little brothers! So, she’ll come home, raid my paint, fabric, ribbon supply and these items will be away for about 2 months! I love your blog. Found you on the linky follower blog hop.
