DIY Memo Board

As I was cleaning the junk room, aka office/craft room. I noticed a bulletin board my daughter used in college which we actually purchased from a thrift store. I didn't like it therefore it was just cluttering the room even more. So, I decided to give it a little up do. I was feeling crafty.

I took the frame off and it was a perfect piece of cork board.

I had my husband cut it into fours. I was not sure if I wanted it cut in half or in fours but since four pieces was my original thought, I went with it.

I purchased some cloth from the local craft store and began my creation. It took all of about 30 minutes from start to finish to complete.

Here are the items you need:

cork board
cloth (size depends on the project)
sharp blade to cut the cork board
regular stapler
picture hangers

That's all! It was really easy and I love how it turned out.

There are different ways you can place the pieces to create your own art.

I've also seen this done using art canvases but it will minimize the weight of items you pin.
