Simple, Swanky Memo Board

I needed a cute place for reminders and such, so I decided to make my own memo board using an old wooden frame I already had.

The supplies you will need: picture frame, 1 foam board, cork roll, spray glue, fabric of your choice

The first step is to find a cute frame that suits your style and the size you want your memo board to be. I found an ugly picture a while back for $15 at a local consignment shop but the frame was amazing. It was originally just a boring wood color so I jazzed it up with some gold metallic spray paint.

Next, I cut the foam board, cork roll, and fabric to fit the picture frame. I bought the foam board for $1 at Dollar Tree. The cork roll was bought at Michael's for about $4 and the fabric I found online.

I then sprayed the foam board with spray glue and attached the pre-cut cork and let it dry for about 30 minutes. Then I spray glued the cork and attached my fabric and again let it dry for a bit.

Of course the next step is to put the foam/fabric/cork board back into your frame. To secure the board to the frame, I hammered small nails into the frame itself.

Easy as pie.
