I saw a framed bulletin board at Hobby Lobby for $70 on Saturday. Now, I would never pay that but I was considering the $35 when it went 1/2 price. Ya'll know that you never pay full price at Hobby Lobby because everything goes 1/2 off sometime. Right? But because I am a little
I pulled off the paper backing and popped out the print. This was a steal at $10 from Old Time Pottery a few years ago. It was a steal because the frame is heavy, sold wood, and it is huge. I never was crazy about the picture but it served a purpose for a time.
I covered the back of the picture with cork from Lowes ($10) and trimmed the excess. Then I covered the cork with the leftover burlap. I wrapped it around and secured it every few inches with my arsenal of choice, the glue gun. If you don't get at least 3 first degree burns from your glue gun, you aren't really crafting. Tip: the cork is THIN. You may want to use the cork from an actual bulletin board that you tear a part. The price is about the same.
Pop it back into the frame and then use a staple gun to secure.
Then I found a hot guy with tools to change the hooks for me. The painting went horizontal but I needed the bulletin board to hang vertical.
It's really helpful if that same hot tool guy will hang the board for you.
Done. The $70 bulletin board for $10 plus leftover frame and leftover burlap.
Labor Day weekend is over so I'll be taking a craft break now...but then again...there are so many ideas on pineterst...I may have to sneak in one or two more in the next few days.
