Quick and Simple Bulletin Board

Need a quick and easy idea for a bulletin board?  I simply used some Glue Arts, hot glue gun and melt sticks, a hunk of burlap..and PRESTO!  The paper , tin buttons and buttons are some of my favorites and it’s by October Afternoon.  I used a picture of my youngest Grandson (Kale)and used Sizzix to cut the word “Hitch your wagon to a star”.  The sky is the limit to how you could decorate your own bulletin board and it’s a perfect way to get your kiddo’s involved !

Step 1:  Cut a piece of foam board that measures 14” x 16”.
Step 2:  Cut a piece of burlap that measures 16” x 18”.
Step 3:  Fold over the edges of the burlap and hot glue into place.

Step 4:  Trim the corners at an angle.

Step 5:  Decorate the front as desired!
I just used push pins and poked them through the buttons.  If you have small children, be sure to hot glue the push pin to the button.
