DIY French Bulletin Board

What you Need
A Canvas
Fabric {enough to cover your canvas)
Staple gun
needle & thread

What to Do
Step 1:First lay out your batting and trim the edges leaving enough to fold over the back

Step 2: Fold the edges of your batting over and staple it down on the back of the canvas. I put staples every 4-6 inches all around. Pull the batting tight so it lays flat. A regular stapler wont work. Staple guns are pretty inexpensive and you will find all kinds of uses for it!

Step 3:If the staples dont go all the way in, use a hammer to tap them down.

Step 4:Next lay down your fabric, leaving enough to fold over the back. Trim off the extra and save it for another project.

Step 5: Staple the fabric down every 4-6 inches.

Step 6:Now it is time to add the ribbon. I start by placing the ribbon diagonally down the canvas.

Step 7:Staple the ribbon down on the back.

Step 8:Continue placing the ribbon diagonally. I dont measure, just eyeball it every few inches until it looked like I wanted it to. I used about 30 feet of ribbon. How much you need depends on how big of a canvas you are using.

Step 9:Now it is time to sew the buttons on. This part takes a little time, but is worth it. It really makes the bulletin board look better.

And your done! Hang this in your bedroom and add some photos. If you used bright colors it will make it your room pop.

Good luck gals!
