I’ve been a busy little bee and have a few crafts to share with you!
I made three ribbon boards while on my little crafting binge!
My bedroom is pink, green, and navy blue, so I picked fabrics that would complement my color palette!
DMC floss color: B5200 – white
I couldn’t decide what width ribbon I wanted to use.
DMC floss color: 3840 – light blue
I finally decided on a 3/8 inch cornflower blue ribbon.
DMC floss color: 151 – light pink
- Canvas (2 – 11 inch x 14 inch, 1 – 12 inch x 24 inch)
- Buttons (7 for the smaller boards and 11 for the large board)
- Ribbon (3/8 inch)
- Embroidery floss
- Scotch tape
- Staple gun
I have a steam iron, so I let my fabric dry while I prepped my board for its fabric.
Next, cut two rectangles of batting to the size of the canvas. Using the staple gun, staple the batting down in each corner of the canvas. Use little batting scraps to cover up the staples. Lay your fabric face-side down and place the canvas (upside down) on top. Wrap the fabric around the edge and staple the fabric to the back. Pull the fabric taut over the canvas and staple on the other side. When doing the sides, pull taut and fold the fabric like you’re wrapping a present before stapling it to the back of the canvas. Repeat on the other side.
The other two are much more difficult because the wooden part of the canvas is in the way.
If you have patience, you can still sew on the buttons like I did. Simply pull the canvas away from the wooden backing and sew underneath.
If you lack patience, you can just hot glue those buttons in place. Once your buttons are in place, the project is done! The pink gingham board turned out so cute! My finished white and blue board! All three boards!
I absolutely love how these turned out!
I can’t wait to hang them up on my wall!
