Latest project!

Just made this! I grabbed some fabric from Joann (30% off!), 3 boxes of upholstery tacks, and a framed cork board, which you can get anywhere.

BIG THANKS to Lynn from 2 Excited Nests for this idea!!!! So creative!

First I ironed the fabric. Very important =)

Plain, ugly cork board.

Laid the fabric over the board. Make sure you work on a flat, steady surface, and that the fabric is lined up just like you want it.

It's a little tricky getting the tacks just right...

Photobucket
I placed the tacks an inch apart.

After I finished the tacks, I turned the board over to notice a bunch of tacks poking out! Ooops... So I pulled the fabric over {and doubled it} and then stapled it to the back of the cork. I allowed 4" all around, it was just enough to double, then cover the spikes.

The corners were thick so I folded them carefully and used a tack to secure them.

All done!!!! =)


Sorry for the delay in posting the giveaway, it will be Friday or Saturday probably!!! Keep checking back.
