Rather than buying a new cork board, I went over to my parents' house and got the old one out of my old bedroom. It was pretty faded and icky looking, but with it being 12+ years old, I expected no less.
After bringing the cork board back to the house, I assembled all of my materials and got to work.
|one yard of fabric, adhesive spray, glue gun, 300 thumbtacks|
All the while, my kitty assistant was keeping a close eye on things.
And that is it! The whole thing cost me roughly $15 for the fabric and thumbtacks, as I already had the glue gun and the adhesive spray.
Once the cork board is hung on the wall, I will add other things to it, but for now, I just pinned a pink bow (I LOVE pink) and and the charm from my wedding bouquet, which was a one sided locket with a picture of my kitten in it.
