DIY Fabric Pinboard

You will need:

Materials for cork baord

  • Fabric
  • Quilting wadding
  • Cork board
  • ribbon
  • pins
  • Staple gun

To make:

Cut out a square of wadding and a square of fabric with turning allowance. The fabric I used was 2″ wider per side.

Place the fabric right side down, the wadding on top, followed by the cork board right side down.

Wadding and cork board

Turn in the corners of the fabric and wadding, secure using the staple gun.

Turn the corners in

Next turn in the sides and secure with the staple gun.

Back of pinboard

Turn over to the right side.

Place your ribbon across the board at equal distances apart. I used a tape measure for accuracy. Alternate your diagonals.

Place ribbon on pinboard

Pin at the cross over points. Turn over and staple the ends of the ribbon securely in place on the back of the board.
