Ain’t nothing to it, crafting made me do it

Why buy something when you can make it yourself instead? That’s a familiar idea I am sure many crafters have had before – not me…until I moved into my new house and realized how much $$$$ I would spend buying all the things I wanted. i.e. basically everything from here. One Monday mid-morning (the day we had off after the Champions tour) I dragged my mom to Ikea to do some shopping. Whilst there, I found the fabric section and was inspired to remake these cute pinboards – after winding through the store, I came up with the below. . .and without further ado, I give you the How to Make Your Own Super Cute Beetlejuice/Pottery Barn Teen Inspired Magnet Board:

First, you will need to go to Ikea and purchase one magnet board and approximately 1 yard of fabric (it will give you some leftovers.)

Cut the fabric a little wider than the sides and a little longer the ends:Ikea Magnet Board Nov. 11, 201435
Get your hot glue gun ready and put the glue all the way down the back and hold pressure:

Repeat on both sides and the ends. You can cut the corners to make the ends glue down better.
