Steps To Make College Bulletin Board

  2. To cut all the lines that you have drawn use the utility knife. Here you may need a few passes.
  3. The measure of the fabric pieces should be 2-3 inches larger than that of the bulletin squares.
  4. In each corner of the pieces cut a notch then you have to fold over the bottom and the top as well and at the back of the squares have to hot glue them.
  5. Glue down both the left and right sides of the squares and follow the step for all the 6 squares.
  6. If you want to fix an already broken frame then you have to drill small holes in each corners of the squares, it will prevent the wood7. from splitting. Now you have to use the nail set to drive the squares beneath the surface, fill them with the wood putty and when they will get dried you have to sand smooth them. Use the drop cloth to protect the surfaces and use 2coats of paint and 2 coasts of primer.
  7. When the frame gets dried completely, first insert the 4 corner pieces and then the rest of the two middle pieces
  8. To cover the bulletin board you have to measure and then cut the illustration and do it within the frame.
  9. Hot glue the bulletin board from left to right. Turn the board, neat a lose thread, hang it and tack up your favorite ephemera.
