DIY: Bulletin Board

Hey Guys,

I am in the process of redecorating Jordyn’s room to make it a little more mature. If you remember or would like a refresher on how her old décor looked check it out here!

Up first is this easy little DIY Bulletin Board, this was one of my old previous DIY projects. I thought I had a post on this but sadly it looks like I never made one 🙁

Here is a picture of the board (before)

I made this a few years ago to hold all of Jordyn’s hair bows and hair clips. It is a piece of mdf covered with batting and an old white sheet that I cut and used to make my foundation. Next I cut strips of ribbon (different colors and sizes and hot glued them onto the board. Then I just slid her hair bows onto the ribbon strips.

I wanted to reuse this board and breathe new life into it. So I started by cutting off all the strips of ribbon and started with my original base (old white sheet).

Next I looked into my craft stash and found these two spools of ribbon. If you don’t have any on hand you can purchase them from Wal Mart or the Dollar Tree for fairly cheap.

ribbon for boardI used black and silver to match the color scheme of her room (black, white and silver). I measured the strips I needed by wrapping them around the board to the back and then cut each strip to length.

Next I hot glued on the silver strips of ribbon going in the opposite direction.

Sparkly!

Finally I added a long strip of black ribbon to the back of my board to hang it on the wall.
