This is a simple makeover but adds a lot of color and dimension to your cork board!! Below is a picture of what the cork board looked like before I recovered it with felt. You can use any color felt you want! I decided to go with the white and charcoal grey.
Below you can see the different layers of felt and ribbon that I added. I first stapled the white felt over the whole cork board. No one is going to see the back so I didn’t cover it, but you could take a 15×36 inch piece of felt and cover the whole back so no one can see the staples and excess material.
Once I stapled the white felt, I glued the first row of felt balls on the top and bottom. To secure the felt balls I put a small line of hot glue on the white felt and then added two or three felt balls at a time. I did this all the way to the end. If the felt balls were loss I add some additional glue in between the balls. After I had hot glued one row of balls on the top and bottom, I then added the piece of charcoal felt in the middle. I did this by wrapping it around the middle of the cork board and stapling the excess on the back.
After the charcoal felt is secured I then added a second row of felt balls to the top and bottom of the cork board!
I then stapled the burlap hanger on the back. I stapled each end of the hanger five inches from the middle of the cork board.
I hope you give this a try!! It was so fun and I love the way the felt balls look on the cork board!! Comment below with your favorite cork board makeover!
