DIY Notice Board

My friend Ro, who blogs over at Jellyhead's Finished Projects wanted to make our friend, Claire at work a birthday present.  We are both into crafting and wanted to create something from scratch.  Claire is well liked by her clients and receives loads of thank you cards, so we decided to give her a board she could pin them all up on!

Ro's hubby kindly got us a piece of plywood from his workplace.  I then used some lovely material that my brother had bought me from Thailand ages ago (it was just sat in my stash  - I guess this was its purpose!!) and used Fabri - Tac to glue it down to the back of the board.

Ro then added some pegs she found in the craft section.  She also used normal clothes pegs, but these seemed too big so she ended up with more of these little ones. 

And ta da - this is what we came up with.  We were really happy with the result.


  1. I love it:)

    There's a challenge for you in my last post if you'd like to do it.

    Big hugs

  2. That's really clever - I love the idea of using mini pegs to make a notice board, obviously I will have to steal this idea!

    Love the material, it's totally luch

  3. that'd be lush of oucse, I don't think that luch is a word!


I love hearing what you have to say! Please take a minute and leave a comment!
