Shabby Bulletin BoardsAdding pockets to a bulletin board is not only useful, but you get to have fun using up bits and pieces of lace and crochet doilies in the process!
The first thing I did was gathered up all of my lace and crocheted bits and pieces, buttons, and jewels
I painted a vintage frame with heirloom white paint and used foam board from the dollar store. I cut two pieces of foam board to fit the frame then used adhesive spray to glue the two boards together, giving it a good thickness for a bulletin boare
I layered different crochet pieces and sewed the individual pieces together for the pockets
Then sewed the individual pieces onto cotton Osnaberg fabric I purchased from JoAnn's Fabric
I used spray adhesive again and glued the fabric to the poster board, then added buttons and glued buttons on top of push pins
The second one I made a little fancier with jewels, and bridal lace
I glued vintage earrings to push pins
Having pockets on the bulletin board comes in so handy for business cards and important pieces of paper that don't need to be pinned, but you don't want to lose
Just imagine how much fun you can have with this project and how many variations you can come up with....... There's no limitations to your creativity!
