I wanted a customized bulletin board in my kitchen to help with all the clutter of mail and reminders, so I headed to Hobby Lobby and Roberts for this DIY project.
I bought the ready made frame at Hobby Lobby for 50% off, so it was $20 for a 22x28 size. I got a piece of cardboard from Costco for free and cut it to size.
Next, I duct taped the rolled cork board to the cardboard. Roberts sells the roll of cork board for $7.49, but with the 40% off, it was $4.49. After securing the cork, I laid it on top of the wrong side of the fabric and secured with a regular stapler.
Again, the fabric came from Hobby Lobby and was $10 for 1 yd (which is a great price for 54" wide decorator fabric.)
Next, I took Grosgrain Ribbon ($1.99 a 15yd bolt at Hobby Lobby) and secured it in a crisscross pattern using thumbtacks.
I used Push Points from Lowes ($1.29) to secure the board into the frame.
You simply use a flat head screwdriver to push the push points into the frame, continuing all along the back of the frame.
Then I placed two self-leveling picture hangers (again from Lowes) at the top.
I love it because not only is it a bulletin board, but the fabric makes it look like art!
