Instead of hanging a plain cork bulletin board on the wall, add fabric and batting to make a padded bulletin board appropriate for use in the home or office. Choose from a variety of fabric types, and add decorative accessories for a personal touch.
1 Measure the cork bulletin board, and cut out the desired fabric three inches larger than the board itself. Set the fabric aside.
2 Cut out the fabric batting two inches larger than the cork board. Set it aside.
3 Place the batting on the counter, and center the cork board, right-side down on top of the batting. Fold one edge of the batting over the board. Secure the batting to the board with the staple gun. Next staple the opposite side, and work your way around the board.
4 Place the fabric on the counter, right-side down, and center the batting-covered board on top of the fabric.
5 Tightly pull the fabric up and over the board and secure it with the staple gun. Repeat with each side, tightly pulling the fabric before stapling it down.
6 Check your work and trim off excess fabric once you have finished stapling.
