Make memoboard yourself – from which materials?
The materials can know limits, but the imagination – never! That means that you can make a memo board yourself! We will introduce you to 2 free tutorials – one with fabric and one with metal. The two pin boards are suitable for different living styles and decoration. If it’s a memo board in the bedroom, in a romantic ambience or vintage style, choose the fabric as the material. The metal fits perfectly in the office, in the hallway or in an apartment decorated in boho style. A memo board made of wood you can also tinker, it looks very comfortable and has a warm charisma. In our picture gallery you can look at different examples and choose the idea that suits you best.
The fabric selection
When talking about memo board is fabric, fabric selection is the most important step. Of course, pattern on fabric should meet your wishes and ideas. But there are some things you need to keep in mind. If you use the memo board more than decoration and only hang a few photos on it, you can easily opt for many and colorful patterns (the first memo board in the picture above). But if many slips, cards and photos come on the whiteboard, the simple imprint or the monochrome fabrics are better suited (the second and the third memo board in the picture above will fit perfectly).
The required materials
Everything you need is shown in the photo above. The materials you need are a canvas of the desired size, a pair of scissors, a hand tacker, ribbons in color matching the fabric, on the picture above you will see a few buttons. Our memo board is for hanging photos and maps. But here you can let your imagination run free. Clothes pegs work great on the memo board, or just hang your notes between the ribbons. It is a homemade work of art – everything is allowed!
This is how the memo board must look from behind:
The basic principle for making a fabric memo board is similar. Lay the canvas on the fabric and cut it as big as you want. The goal is to transform the canvas with the fabric, so leave about 10 inches of fabric from all 4 sides. After that comes the tapes. Again, there are no limits. Whether you are using ribbons made of fabric, rubber bands or parcel laces, you can think diagonally, horizontally or in cross on memo board. You need to nail the fabric on the back of the canvas with the hand-held tacker. Fix it firmly with several small nails on each side. Even better, if you put your memo board in a great picture frame. Have fun crafting!
