DIRECTIONS:

1. Cut your bead board to approximately 12 inches x 20 inches. Also cut your hardboard into 4 pieces that are approx. 4.5 x 6.5 inches. You will also need one hardboard piece that is approx. 2.5 inches x 12 inches.

2. Cut our 4 pieces of scrapbook paper that are approx. the same size of your 4 rectangular pieces. Mod podge these on to the rectangles and let dry. You will also cut out one piece of scrapbook paper that will go onto the long rectangular piece. Mod podge this on as well.

6. Add ribbon to back. I used wood for the sample instead of bead board and to add vinyl I marked the center on the back and then marked a spot 3 inches on either side. I think stapled ribbon to the back using my staple gun and then tied a knot. For the bead board We drilled holes through the top and had them string the ribbon through.

7. Now add embellishments and hot glue mini clothespins to the tops.

And what’s best is depending on the paint or scrapbook paper and embellishments each board is so personalized and different!

NOTE: You can even put the vinyl straight to the board if it’s flat.

For another cheap option cut up some bead board for the back board to make it less expensive.
