A Girly Bulletin Board

My husband's had this bulletin board for over 25 years. Have I mentioned he has a hard time throwing things away. It's a standard bulletin board - not quite special enough to hang in a little girl's room.



I had lots of scraps of fabric and ribbon left over from previous projects.



Add in a little inspiration from her and her.



Now this bulletin board is all dressed up!

I sprayed the whole board with a couple coats of Rust-Oleum's Sweet Pea. I cut four strips of base ribbon to use for each side of the board, and then tied and tied until my little fingers could take no more!

I hot glued each "ragamuffin garland" on to the board. (If I knew how, I would use that little "c" symbol here to indicate that term may be copyrighted by the Nester).



Finally, I tweaked and fluffed it until I was satisfied. I did have to go back in and add a little to the corners. Now I'm off to make some push pins worthy enough to call this girly bulletin board home.

How cute is that?! I will definitely be filing this away for future reference (I don't think my son or husband would like me to make this right now, lol).

Love it!! I have covered bulletin boards in fabric and made them cute(r), but I love the idea of using the ragamuffin garland! I may incorporate this into my studio.
