Burlap Message Board



I can't believe I finally finished this project. I think I started working on this in April but it just didn't turn out the way that I wanted. I could not figure out how to secure the back properly. I used my glue gun but it didn't stick. Last week I had a total revelation and I just wanted to face palm myself because it was so simple.Staple it!

 I started off with some Burlap and Upholstery Tacks that I got from Mindy Mae's Market earlier this year or maybe last year. I decided that a Bulletin Board would be a good use of the supplies. I bought a STYROFOAM Brand Foam  1" x 12" x 18" Sheet  and went to work.
The burlap was a bit sheer so I decided to recycle an old tan tank top.
I even went out and bought a new purple stapler for the occasion.

I measured the board and figured out on the shorter side to space


My lovely assistant seemed very pleased with the board. Of course she claimed it for her own.

Thanks for stopping by!
