When Emily from On the V Side decided to turn her office into a usable craft space, she says there was no question the walls needed a little “pick-me-up.” Emily started with the “simplest of organizational tools” and created a corkboard for the wall. The fun part was that Emily challenged herself to make it for absolutely no cost, using only items she had on hand. Sounds like a girl after my own heart!
After making a bunch of pom-poms for a photo shoot, Meredith from One Sheepish Girl certainly couldn’t let the colorful beauties go to waste sitting in plastic bags. She came up with a simple DIY to put them to use by hot gluing magnets and pushpins to the backs of the smaller poms. Meredith says she loves the color and texture they add to her inspiration board.
I know many of you will be shocked to learn that I have never seen Downton Abbey. Nope, not even one episode. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate this cute little butler’s bell memo board made by Amy from Atta Girl Says. Since I am clueless when it comes to the hit series, I’ll let Amy take it away…
The little memo board above the desk of Gina from The Cannary Family was overflowing with pictures and other mementoes. Fortunately, Gina had a large bulletin board in her garage that was practically begging for a makeover. Gina gave it the Ballard treatment with burlap and upholstery tacks but then also added a French memo board twist by creating a design with ribbon. Gina’s new board doesn’t skimp on style or space!
If you have a little girl, you undoubtedly know about all the cute hair doodads that can be made from fabric yo-yos. However, their usefulness is not limited to hair accessories. Amanda from Be Sweet beautified a bulletin board by turning her leftover yo-yos into pushpins. These are so stinkin’ cute and a great way to add style to something as useful as a memo board.
