by a pinboard I found on Pinterest.
Obviously I'm still collecting lovely things to add to my board, but the base looks pretty close!
-Large Cork Board
-5/8'' White Gros Grain Ribbon (here)
-1 Yard of Neutral Linen (here)
-White out Pen
We know that linen pinboards can cost a bundle...like this $200 one from Pottery Barn.
This one comes up at around $40, a great price I think!
Here are the steps (and poor quality photos..)
1. Cover the cork side of your board with spray adhesive.
2. Apply a thin layer of cotton batting.
3. Lay your linen out face down on a smooth flat surface and place your board cotton side down on top. Cut to size, leaving extra around the edges (Sorry about this blurry picture!).
4. Begin to staple (I used a regular stapler) your fabric to the back of the board. Begin in the middle of each side and work your way out to the corners. Fold the corners as neatly as possible!
5. Time to add ribbon! This part takes a bit of playing around to get the angles and measurements right. Once you've got it laid out, staple the ribbon in place on the back side.
6. To slightly tuft the board, add a staple using the staple gun in the middle of each x of ribbon.
6. Add buttons of your choosing using a glue gun! (I used pink and white like the inspiration picture)
7. Hang and Enjoy!
