Do-it-yourself pretty corkboard

This is a simple do-it-yourself cork board project that I just love. I'm always looking for new ways to display the thousands of pictures I have, and I thought this was a neat way to do so. Also, with the holidays right around the corner, it'll be the place where I can hang all of my Christmas cards we recieve this year.

I bought the two largest corkboards I could find at Jo Ann Fabrics. Then stapeled them together with a staple gun.
Next, using a hot glue gun, I pasted a yard of fabric onto the board.

Then, I glued on two peices of burlap twine to create a "clothesline" where I can hang my pictures from.

  1. So great to meet you today Ashley! Alicia forwarded your site to me because you're right - I couldn't remember the address! Great idea for photos - I'm always looking to get beyond little frames, because they are such dust collectors and who has time for that? :)
