This is a pretty, and disgustingly easy, DIY vintage fabric covered pin board that I made this afternoon...
You will need...
A cork board, fabric, scissors, hammer and drawing pins.
The pin board is from Wilkinson's and cost £2, it's a good one for this project as it has no frame to get in the way.
Step 1. Cut out your fabric to an inch or so bigger than your cork board.
Step 2. One side at a time, pull the fabric tight and pin it in place. Fold the fabric at each corner as if you were wrapping a parcel, then pin in place. The hammer is for making the pins cooperate. I also found making a guide hole with a nail helpful to get the pins in (the MDF round the back of the pin board was quite hard - small nails or a staple gun might have been a better choice, but I have neither of those and in the interests of being green and thrifty I decided to use what I had to hand.)
Step 3. Put it up on your wall. I snipped a hole in the fabric on both sides to uncover the slot for the nail to slip in, before I put it up.
The main purpose of creating this was so I'd have somewhere to keep my McFly tickets safe until I go to see them in September!
