I’m juggling so much day to day that a memo board right next to the door certainly has its merits.

This pretty burlap memo board with its colorful accents and multi-use face with pin-able surface is the ultimate organizer.

It’s quick, easy, and very inexpensive to make.

Creative Burlap Memo Board Materials:

 The burlap memo board is a creative project.  Decide what size you need and where you are going to put it.

Deciding these factors will help you decide what kind of colorful accents to use.

Creative Burlap Memo Board Directions:

 Paint the plaque:

 Paint the chosen wooden plaque with chalk paint and allow it to try.

If you are using your plaque for decoration only, use acrylic paint.

Construct the board:

Measure the area for the placement of the chalkboard.  Cut the cork tile to fit the desired area.

Cover the board:

 Take the cork board and center it face down on the burlap.

Make sure the edges of the burlap are long enough to wrap around the canvas to the back.

Fold the edges under and staple them in place.  Be sure to pull the burlap taut while stapling the edges.

Finish the burlap memo board:

 Take the chosen ribbon and staple approximately 22” length of ribbon to the top back of the frame for hanging.

Next, staple 16” length of ribbon on the desired corners of the memo board.

Stay organized!

Get creative and stay in the know with your burlap memo board!
