How To Make A Homemade Bulletin Board

I wish I could say that I came up with this clever idea, but the credit has to go to my handy hubby.

I'd been searching for reasonably priced bulletin boards for my kids for quite a while, but anything that was a good size also carried a hefty price tag ($20-$30 each). So my genius husband came up with the idea to use some carboard, an old sheet, and some duct tape...of course!

We used a king size sheet that we haven't used in years (we're flannel sheet snobs now that we're used to them). Hubby cut the cardboard, and I cut the fabric. Then I taped the edges down on the backside of the cardboard (sort of like wrapping gift wrapping), and hubby hung them in the kids' rooms.

I was a bit skeptical, but normal tacks work beautifully! It was free, simple, fun, the kids love them, and it works great. Now THAT works for me!

I've been looking for an idea for something above my desk. I want to do a bulletin board and magnet board combo but don't like the look of the cork style boards. Thanks for the great (and cheap!) idea. Love it!

That's a cool and cheap idea! Might have to try it...

Great idea! I've been looking for a bulletin board as well but the price has kept me away. I will definitely be making one of these. Thanks!

I'm hating that the recycling man just pick up loads of flattened boxes from me...I will be doing this...eventually. Thank you, I mean your hubby, for the great tip!

Oh, and it will be the flannel sheets I use for this...they are just too hot for us!
