SUPPLIES…

Bulletin Board-I recycled an old one from the mud room

Staple gun and stapes or Hot glue gun and glue

Fabric- about 6″ wider and longer then your board

Batting about 4′ wider and longer then your board

Ribbon- I used about 8 yards on my project but I covered the largest bulletin board I could find.

Twill tape 4-6″ wider then the side of the board that will run horizontal- this will be used to hang it.

Thumb or Upholstery tacks

Scissors

Fold the batting in at the corner and hot glue or staple down pulling tauntly.  Repeat at all corners

Then glue the sides of the batting down, doing one side and then the opposite side pulling tauntly.

If you are using hot glue, watch your fingers!  It can get hot!

Repeat the top three steps with the fabric, starting in the corners.

Flip bulletin board over and lay ribbon corner to corner.

Fasten each end down with a pin or a tack and then flip board over and glue or staple then ends down securely.

Lay more ribbons down parallel to the corner to corner guide ribbons.

Pin in place and then wrap ends to the back and fasten down with staples or glue.

 Add tacks to the front of the board where the ribbons overlap.

Decide which way you are going to hang your new ribbon bulletin board.  Flip your board over and then run twill tape or heavy ribbon across the back and adhere with staple gun or tacks to secure on the side.
