DIY Bulletin Board

This DIY is so easy, there is really no need for instructions. You can pretty much do it however you please 🙂 I did this last week and it took about 30 minutes total. Here is the basic idea…

bulletin boardI purchased an old white frame at a flea market for $1.00! It has been sitting in the garage for a few months and I decided to make a bulletin board for my office. I always need something to put work stuff on, or pin little pieces of paper, but I wanted something cute at the same time. My office has a vintage theme, so I thought this frame would fit in well.

So, all you need is:

  1. Old empty frame
  2. White foam board or even a cork board
  3. Piece of burlap (optional, but pretty)
  4. Staple gun (or little nails)
  5. Sawtooth hangers

First, I cut the foam board to fit the back of the frame, then used a small staple gun to staple it to the back, making sure it was going into wooden frame. You could easily use penny nails, or even a tack gun. (probably even a glue gun!) Anything to get the job done.

Next, I found some black burlap that I cut to fit the inside of frame. I stapled that to the front of foam board so it would look pretty (totally optional though).

Lastly, I just put a sawtooth hanger on the back so it could hang from wall or any surface.

That’s it! Obviously, the burlap and even sawtooth hanger are optional. It would also be cute to just rest it on a desk or table.

I actually put some ribbon inside the sawtooth hanger and hung it from my decorative room divider behind my desk 🙂

Just a fun, easy, cheap way to use an old frame!
