I found this tutorial for an adorable cork board and knew right away that this was exactly what Averee needed for her room!
The entire project hardly cost any money (or time for that matter) since I had left over fabric and ribbon from her room. I did need to buy a 10 x 10 piece of canvas and cork board. I bought the canvas and cork board for around $5 (Joann's always has great coupons in the Sunday paper!)
What you need:
10x 10 piece of canvas (or any size that you wish to use)
Cork board ( I used the roll and cut it to size)
Button or Embellishment
Staple gun (it is OK if you don't have this but it makes the project a little easier)
And I apologize for the photos. Major difficulty getting the settings right on the night of crafting!
To start cut your fabric to 14 x 14 (or measure depending on the size of your canvas)
Fold side and use the staple gun to staple in place (I did opposite sides first)
Next cut your cork board to size. I cut mine to an 8 x 8 square to leave a 1 inch boarder around the sides.
Now it is time to make your flower. Cut three circles of varying sizes. Using two different fabrics will make the flower stand out more.
And because I am not very good at doing a free hand circle I used these to create my circles.
Last cut ribbon of choice to desired length and hot glue to bottom of board (on the back side of the canvas board). I also chose to add a pink bow to the bottom of this ribbon which I just hot glued directly to the ribbon.
And here is your finished product! Isn't it beautiful? Now we can nicely display photos and hair bows in her room. You can of course add multiple ribbons to the bottom or make the ribbon longer. I chose this because it worked for the space where we wanted to hang it.
Now she has a beautiful holder to match the rest of her room perfectly!
This would make a great gift for a baby shower or birthday party for any little girl or even just as a cute piece for your own home (without the ribbon on the bottom)! I am actually planning to make more just to use as a bulletin board for my laundry room!
Coming up next....Averee's Halloween custom and a new project that I am starting today!
