diy Easter craft

I crafted this reversible note board last year using burlap, fabric, foam core, a white washed picture frame, craft wire, mirror clips, and vintage button push pins. I've loved creating and changing out my fabric design accents throughout the year. 

 Note Board Design:
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. Remove glass from frame, 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!
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.) 
Hanging- (easy peasy)place wood screws onto either side of the back of your frame, wrap decorative craft wire from one to the other. I recommend pre drilling the 
holes for a hardwood frame.
Reversibleundo 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 lovely, hand made, snow flakes in my photo are from the Olimpa Best Knits shop on Etsy. They came all the way from Sophia, Bulgaria!
