I have been collecting picture frames for a while to create a gallery wall. I’m getting close to the amount I need. After accessing the pile, I came across one that just didn’t seem to work with the others. So what does one do with an odd ball picture frame? Make a pin board!
This is is what I had to start with. One empty picture frame.
How to Make a Pin Board- Shop my Stash
Step 1: Measure and cut a piece cardboard that will fit inside the frame. Attach foam batting to the cardboard using spray adhesive
Step 2: Measure and cut a piece of fabric approximately 1 inch larger than the cardboard
Step 3: Wrap and secure the fabric to the cardboard Normally I would use a staple gun but today I am out of staples. Plan B: hot glue gun! Then pull and pull as you glue along
Step 4: Add ribbon in a criss-cross fashion. It was helpful to use stick pins to keep the ribbon in place until I was happy with the pattern. Again, I used the glue gun to secure the ribbon on the backside of the cardboard removing the pins as I went along.
Step 5: Place the padded, fabric covered cardboard back into the frame. This frame still had its fasteners to hold the cardboard. Small finishing nails would have worked just as well, also. Turn it over and it’s complete !!
