Memo Board – Staple that weekend DIY!

Posted on 31 Jul 2015

Looking for a quick weekend project, then you are in luck.
I love making quick and easy things – especially for the home – making it a functional and pretty place.
Well with the Chiswick electric Staple gun that is no problem.

detail 1For today I made this memo board from a recycled stretched canvas using my staple gun and some pretty ribbon.
notice boardstep 1 – Turn your canvas over so that the frame work is no the front part.
Mist the canvas with a ink or paint it a solid colour of your choice.
step 1step 2 – Place your ribbon over the frame of your canvas. Staple the left side of the ribbon to the wooden frame.
step 2step 3 – Pull the ribbon over to the right hand side and staple the edge to the frame again.
You can wrap the ribbon around the frame and staple it to the other side of your canvas for a nice neat finish.
Continue stapling as many ribbons as you like to your canvas.
step 3This is also a fun project for a little girl’s room – keeping all her hair clips sorted and in one place.
Keep important memo’s on the board, newsletters and to do lists.
This smaller scale memo board is perfect for my desk – making it super functional with loads of eye appeal!
detail 2I am so thinking that my next staple gun project may just include covering an ottoman or two.
Happy crafting until next time!
