You may already have a cork board that can be repurposed for this project, and because bulletin boards come in various sizes and shapes, materials and instructions do not recommend specific quantities. Instead, instructions are given so that you may calculate materials needed to complete this project.
- Fabric: To determine how much fabric you’ll need, measure the cork portion only of the bulletin board and add 4″ inches to the height and 4″ to the width. Cut fabric to size.
- Ribbon: To determine how much ribbon you’ll need, multiply the width x height of the bulletin board in inches. Determine yardage by dividing that number by 36″. (If it seems like a lot of ribbon- it is. The small board done in the photo took 5 yards of ribbon.)
- Upholstery tacks
- Spray Adhesive
- Painters or masking tape
- Office stapler/staples
- Straight pins
- Tape measure
- Pencil or chalk
- Protect working surface with newsprint. Mask off bulletin board frame with painters tape. Spray a generous coat of spray adhesive onto cork board.
- Center fabric on cork board and smooth fabric into place working from the center out to the edges of the frame. Pull fabric taught and press in place. Turn fabric edges under approx. 2″ on all sides; press and pin in place.
- With office stapler unfolded, staple edges of fabric approx. 1/8″ from inside edge of frame. Continue stapling till fabric is secure; remove pins.
- To determine placement for ribbon, divide the board into fourths or thirds; mark each point at edge of fabric with chalk or pencil. Begin stapling ribbon at top center of board; pull ribbon taught diagonally to the next mark (either left or right) and staple in place. Cut ribbon close to staple. Continue stapling ribbons crisscrossing them until board is completely finished.
- Cover all staples by outlining inside edges of frame with ribbon. Secure ribbon by placing upholstery tacks where ribbons intersect. Continue placing tacks at each intersection. Remove masking tape from frame.

Kids are more likely to be enthusiastic about schoolwork when there is a specific place for them to do their homework. Set up one of these fun-looking portable homework stations in your child’s bedroom so they can keep all their school supplies and notes in one place.
This is the perfect project for a tween or preteen to do on his/her own, but a younger kid can assemble his or hers with the help of an adult.
Fabric Covered Corkboard
Check out all of our back-to-school ideas including more crafts, great lunch recipes and fun printable activities. We’ve also got great educational tips for parents.
What you’ll need:
- Corkboard with wooden border
- Thin piece of fabric, large enough to cover cork
- 2 sheets of felt, one white and one that compliments the color of the fabric
- 1 sheet of felt in a color that contrasts with your fabric (for child’s name)
- Liquid gesso
- White acrylic craft paint
- Felt glue
- White craft glue
- Strong craft glue (recommended: E-6000 Craft Adhesive)
- Acrylic sealer spray
- Craft knife
How to make it:
- Paint the border of the corkboard with 1-2 coats of gesso and let dry.
- When dry, paint the border with white paint. Add a second coat if needed.
- Spray border with acrylic sealer spray and let dry.
- Meanwhile, measure the corkboard section by laying pieces of paper over the cork area. Trim to fit and then tape the pieces of paper together where needed. This will serve as a pattern for cutting your fabric.
- Lay your fabric, wrong side up, on a clean work surface. Lay your paper pattern onto fabric and use a pencil or chalk to lightly trace around the paper. Cut out the traced piece.
- If necessary, iron out any creases in your fabric. Set fabric aside.
- Cut one piece of felt into a 6.5” x 5.5” rectangle and another piece into a 5” x 4.5” rectangle.
- Place the smaller piece of felt on top of the larger piece. Position so that the bottom and two sides have the same amount of space showing (approximately ¾”), the top should have more felt showing from underneath.
- Using felt glue, attach the smaller piece to the larger piece.
- Glue the top section of the larger piece of felt onto the smaller piece of felt by folding it down toward you. This creates the top flap of the pencil pocket. Set aside to dry.
- Using alphabet cookie cutters to trace child’s name onto felt using pencil. Cut out the letters.
- Place the cork board onto the work surface. Place the fabric face up on top of the cork. Use a strong craft glue (such as E-6000 Craft Adhesive) to attach the edges, corners and the middle of the fabric to the cork.
- Have an adult use a craft knife to either trim the edges or tuck them under the wood border.
- Pipe white craft glue along the edges of the fabric next to the wood border. Line the glue with ribbon to cover up any edges or fabric fray.
- Turn the felt pencil pocket upside down and line the bottom and sides with glue. Do not put glue across the top, this is the opening of your pencil pocket. Glue the pocket to the fabric cork board.
- Glue the fabric letters to the fabric cork board and let everything dry before hanging.
- E-6000 and felt glue are both available from craft supply stores. White craft glue can be used in place of both, however white craft glue has a tendency to soak into felt and may require multiple applications.
- A butter knife can be used in place of a craft knife to tuck fabric edges under the wood border.
- Liquid gesso is a craft medium that will help paint adhere and will eliminate the possibility of paint flaking off.
