We desperately needed a bulletin board for our home. Especially for bills, but also for keeping material memories visible.
I thrifted a vintage cross-stitch picture with frame. A huge one, perfect for a great big bulletin board.
Tape off the parts you do not want to colour.
I started out painting the picture with fabric paint, but that did not work at all. Wool was a lot more difficult to colour than I expected, so I ended up spraypainting the whole thing.
More protection for the frame since I wanted to keep the original colours. Newspaper pages comes so very much in handy for all kinds of crafty work!
I wanted a gold bulletin board, but I was not sarisfied with the shade of gold on the wool embroidery, it was more of a dirty brownish shade than the pretty solid gold that stuck to the paper. So I took out my black spray paint.
I am happy with the result!
Have you made a bulletin board out of recycled materials?
Have a great Thursday!
