Artsy Bulletin Boards

While searching the Better Homes and Gardens for kids craft ideas, I came across this one that if not used for kids would be great in a kitchen, office or craft room and provide a bit of artsy decor along the way, especially if you want to highlight some of your photos.

Artsy Bulletin Boards
Use photos and a snippet from a letter written home to create artsy bulletin boards made from cork trivets.
From the magazine, Creative Kids

What You Need:
Iron-on transfer paper
Light-color cotton or cotton-blend fabric
Spray adhesive

1. Scan a photo and letter into your computer. Enlarge and crop them to fit the trivets. Print the images onto iron-on transfer paper. Iron the paper onto light-color cotton or cotton-blend fabric. (Dark fabrics require a special type of transfer paper.)
2. Use spray adhesive to affix the fabric to the cork, smoothing it and wrapping it neatly around to the back of the trivet.

  1. Thanks for posting this. I need something better than taping everything to my office closet door. Ha!
