Pretty Pinboard

If there’s one area we always neglect in our homes, it tends to be the hallway. Its practical purpose often completely eclipses the opportunity for innovation, meaning we barely notice the space’s potential as we storm through to the next room. To remedy this, we’ve brought you an eye-catching noticeboard to inject your corridor with a splash of cheer. Why not showcase your favourite photos, tickets and postcards for all to see?

  1. Fabric
  2. Felt
  3. Wadding
  4. Wood, at least 1cm thick
  5. Ribbon
  6. Drawing pins
  7. Buttons
  8. Glue, strong
    1. Lay wood on top of fabric, then using it as a template, cut two inches around the outside. There should be enough room for the fabric to attach to the back of the wood. Snip the wadding to the same size.

    2. Place the fabric face down on a flat surface, then the wadding on top and lastly the wood. Wrap the fabric and wadding around the wood, covering the edges and pulling to the back. Pin or staple in place. Do this all the way round, pulling the fabric tight whilst sewing.

    3. Position the ribbon across the front of the board (this can work with a criss-cross effect or straight lines). Attach each piece to the back as before, ensuring they are pulled tight. Cut an extra piece of ribbon and attach at the top on the back for hanging.

    4. Pin or staple all the ribbons at the points that overlap. This will make tight pockets to hold notes. The joins can also be decorated with buttons. Cut felt to the same size as the noticeboard and glue to the back to cover all the pins or staples.
