Shaped Bulletin Boards


These are great for children's rooms, kitchen or office. They can follow a theme in wallpaper, fabric, books, etc.

Cork type ceiling tile (about $5.00 per 2-feet x 4-feet sheet - use broken or used tiles whenever possible.

Fabric, 3 inches larger than finished size of project

Glue, both spray adhesive and bottled white type of choice


Serrated or razor knife


Optional: ribbon, flowers, raffia, bows, etc. for finishing touches

Draw desired shape on board and cut out with knife of choice. Ceramic saw or serrated knife with larger teeth works well. Note: The more intricate shape you choose — more curves, time and patience to cover with the fabric to make a smooth edge.

Spray board with spray adhesive and place face down on wrong side of fabric. Clip or notch fabric where necessary as you pull to back side to make a neat, flat edge, before gluing and/or stapling. You can use an electric stapler with 3/8 inch to 1/2 inch staples, using no glue.

Trim with desired options. You can add a hanger or nail directly to wall with small finishing nails, especially in Southern California or anywhere else you have earth "shakers."
