DIY Fabric Covered Pinboard

Ok so I got a little crafty over the weekend and decided I wanted to make a pinboard for my bedroom so I could have an 'inspiration' board. Naturally I wanted it too look as pretty as possible so I took to pintrest to get some ideas and decided I wanted to make a fabric covered pinboard. And heres how I did it.

The Equipment:

  • A pinboard
  • Wadding the same size as the pinboard
  • Fabric to cover the wadding and pinboard
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Staple Gun
The Steps:
  1. Cut your wadding so that it is the same size as the front of your pinboard and staple into place. 
  2. Take your fabric and place it directly over the pinboard and wadding. Fold the left side over the wadding and staple it to the back of the pinboard all the way down.
  3. Repeat this step for the other sides so that the fabric is securely in place
  4. Fold the corners that are lose so they are flat and staple them down. 
  5. Take your ribbon and decide how you would like it placed. You can do all sorts of patterns e.g. criss cross. I decided to cut 4 strips and place it in the four corners, stapled down, and hey presto your done!
