Fabric note boards are very popular right now. I made this reversible one using burlap, fabric, foam core, a white washed frame, craft wire, mirror clips, and vintage button push pins. It's reversible, so one side is burlap and the other side is pretty fabric. I've loved crafting fabric appliqué letters and holiday shapes to display on it throughout the year.

Note board design:
- Frame- 12" x 16" inch wood frame with glass removed, sand and paint with two coats of white wash paint (mix paint half and half with water to create a white wash.)
- Fabric covered foam core board- 2 pieces of foam core board (from the dollar store) measuring 12" x 16" inches. Cover one board with burlap and the other with holiday fabric. Fold over back edges of fabric and hot glue in place. You can also use spray adhesive. With glass removed, place your covered boards together back to back, place into frame opening.
- Mirror clips- use 4 mirror clips on the back of picture frame to hold fabric boards in place. The mirror clips work great fitting the chunky fabric covered foam core boards!
- Hanging- place wood screws onto either side of the back of your frame, wrap decorative craft wire from one to the other. I pre-drilling the holes, because this was a very hardwood frame.
- Reversible- undo hanging wire & mirror clips to flip and use the reverse side!
- Vintage button push pins- gather your favorite vintage buttons and hot glue onto flat tacks.
The hand made, snow flake pinned with my Believe appliqué is from the Olimpa Best Knits shop on Etsy. The assortment I bought came all the way from Sophia, Bulgaria!
