Ballard Burlap Pin Board DIY

22 Jan

For months I have been eyeing this burlap bulletin board from Ballard Designs. I find that site so addicting! Everything on there is just my style, the prices however sometimes not so much. The burlap bulletin board starts at $89 and only goes up from there. After deciding I really wanted one a familiar thought crossed my mind…”I could totally make that!” Sometimes with these DIY you have to weigh the cost of the item and if it’s worth your time and trouble to make it yourself. This particular DIY is so easy and totally worth saving the $89 you were going to spend!  For reference here is the Ballard burlap board.

So pretty, aren’t they?!

Ok what you will need:

  • Cork Board
  • Large piece of burlap
  • Scissors
  • Glue Gun
  • Furniture Nails

Then just flip the board over and insert the furniture nails. I used black nails and spaced them three inches apart from one another.

It’s that easy, totally worth it! This board is so versatile it could be used as an inspiration board, wedding decor, party decor, a place to hang kids art work, really the options are endless.
