Okay - I have some adrenalin going tonight. And so excited to report that I have actually finished another one of my many, many projects. My kids will be proud - Ha! They roll their eyes every time they like something and I tell them I CAN MAKE THAT. And that gives me even more ideas for posts. But, seriously, I have a problem with too many ideas and not enough time. Bet you know what I'm talking about.....
Here we go! What I did with the other half of the acoustic ceiling tile that became my Christmas Card display!
And here is the road we took to get to this board!
Like the other board, I measured the burlap an inch (or 3/4") larger than the actual board itself.
Then cut the burlap
As I mentioned before in my earlier post Red Burlap Bulletin BoardI like to paint the white tiles a color similar to the color of the burlap (because it has such an open weave and I don't like all that white showing-just a personal preference). And anytime I can use one of my fav Krylon colors, Caramel Latte, I use it! What is it about colors that make such a difference in our lives?
Anyway - back to the board! I folded over the edges just like the red one, but with a different twist. Instead of staples I used upholstery tacks. As you can see in the picture I tried to place them every 2 inches. Not the neatest job, but hey - it is my first attempt! I do really like the studs with the burlap. Actually LOVE this combo!
Then add some of the same flower tacks used before - wonderful! Cool note-you can switch this and any other board up with different tacks!
Check out this fun party going on now through April 30th!
