- a cork board (an old one will do just fine)
- staple gun and staples
- upholstery tacks (Hobby Lobby) I used exactly 1 package of 48
- fabric of your choice
I did this project on my kitchen table and I don’t recommend it! When I went to hammer my tacks in a little piece of the end came out the back of the board and indented my table. I should of used my craft table instead. Live and learn right! Ok so back the the project. Wrap the fabric around the front of the cork board and pull them tight around the edges. Staple the ends of the fabric to the wood frame on the back of the board.
So it will look like this.
I folded my corners in like this.
I cut two holes in the fabric where the nails attach it to the wall in the back.
After I finished stapling all the fabric down I trimmed the edges so it looked like this.
From the front.
Now for the upholstery tacks.
I started putting one in each corner.
And then one directly in the middle of the two.
And then I did the same with the other tacks placing each one directly in the middle of the two beside it.
After I put all the tacks in where I wanted them I hammered them into the board to make sure they were all the way down. This is the part I should have done on another table!
