DIY: Framed Fabric Inspiration Board

Glitter 'N Glue DIY Framed Fabric Inspiration BoardDon’t get me wrong Pinterest is a good time, but my inner magazine junkie gets a real thrill from physically ripping out those glossie pages and pinning them on a real life inspiration board. I like having a board in my work space that is bright, colorful and inspires me to be creative. Obviously a regular ole cork bulletin board just won’t do! This floral fabric covered frame board is just want I needed to decorate my space. And the best part is that it doubles as wall art!

Glitter 'N Glue DIY Framed Fabric Inspiration Board MATERIALSMaterials: A Frame, Fabric, Paint, Cardboard, Scissors, Stapler

Glitter 'N Glue DIY Framed Fabric Inspiration Board TRACETrace the back of your frame onto cardboard and use scissors to cut out your shape

Note: I used a cardboard display board as my base. It reminded me of my 4th grade Science project!

  9. This is so AWESOME! I’m the same – pinterest is addictive but I still buy magazines and rip pictures out to have around me. I am so going to make one of these! Better than pinning on the wallpaper :-$

  17. Another great idea is to cover a metal piece with fabric instead of cardboard. Then you can use cute magnets to hang your pictures! 🙂

  24. Kristen, I absolutely love your projects and posts. I pin most everything you do, and those pins are nearly always my most re-pinned items of the week. Keep up the good work.

    Cool idea to spice up your room in a small way but one that doesn’t break the bank.

    I’ve been wanting to try out the ‘vision board idea’ that’s been extremely popular with the youtube community . Not only is it a place that inspires you but it’s also a small project to get your hands into. Who doesn’t want little projects here and there to put off the extreme mundanity of life’s daily rituals? 😉

    All you need to make this fabulous ‘vision board’ are 6 items:
    A frame
    Your choice of fabric
    Paint (if u wish to change the colour of the frame)
    Scissors
    A stapler
    Cardboard

    How easy!! And it’s entirely customizable right down to the last detail! Definitely gonna try this out soon and you guys should too! x
