This old cork pin board has been sat in my office unused since we moved house at new year and to be honest I didn’t really use it before we moved either.
Anyway I decided last night that I would give it a face lift.
So here it is.
I think it looks much better, Ive used some fabric Ive had a while it was a big remnant that I paid about £5 for and Ive used it in lots of projects that you can see on this blog. I added some wadding and used a staple gun to fasten both to the back of the board frame.
The blue ribbon again Ive had ages and I used some ‘sugar coated brads’ to anchor the ribbon where they cross.
I couldn’t get the brads to go through the ribbon and the cork board, so I put them just through the ribbon and put a dab of hot glue behind each section to hold it down to the fabric.
I love how it turned out and its going on the wall in the craft room.
