Today I am sharing with you how to make a fabric pinboard. They are quick and simple to make, perfect for squeezing a crafty make into limited time! With Christmas hovering in the background now is an ideal moment to get ahead with some Christmas gift making.
DIY Fabric Pinboard
You will need:
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.
Turn in the corners of the fabric and wadding, secure using the staple gun.
Next turn in the sides and secure with the staple gun.
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.
Pin at the cross over points. Turn over and staple the ends of the ribbon securely in place on the back of the board.
Using the fittings supplied with the cork board hang up.
The finished pinboard is perfect for storing invites, postcards, etc..
