Fabric Covered Bulletin Boards

This post is brought to you by Waverly Inspirations. As always, opinions are 100% my own.

You may recall last month when I filled you in on my partnership with Waverly Inspirations. In case you forgot, here’s the skinny: every month I’ll be challenged to create something with the fabrics, ribbon, paint, and other miscellaneous products I receive. And I’ll also be given a theme to follow.

It’s kind of like Chopped but with crafting supplies.

This month’s theme is Back to School. I obviously don’t have a child in school, but I was talking with a friend who’s eldest daughter is going to preschool, and she said she needed a bulletin board-type mechanism in her kitchen to stay more organized.

So I whipped up these fabric covered bulletin boards for her. Friend of the year right here.


Here’s what you’ll need:

Waverly Inspirations fabric … Walmart
Waverly Inspirations ribbon … Walmart
12″ x 12″ cork tiles … Walmart
ruler … already had
scissors … already had
hot glue gun + glue … already had
Command Brand picture hanging strips … Walmart


Cut a 15″ x 15″ piece of fabric. Lay it face down and center the cork tile in the middle.


Glue the fabric to the cork tile.


Repeat this process for the other tiles. You can use the same fabric or different fabric– it’s totally up to you.


Cut six 12″ pieces of ribbon. Using your ruler, measure in 2.5″ on each side. Glue two pieces of ribbon on both sides of a tile.


Grab another tile and measure in 2.5″ on each side. Position this tile 1″ above the tile with ribbons. Glue the other ends of the ribbons to the other tile.


I used Command Brand picture hanging strips to mount the top fabric covered bulletin board to the wall.


Now my friend has a place to pin all her random birthday invitations, birth announcements, gift cards, and coupons. But I’m sure it’ll start filling up with preschool papers pretty soon.
