Quick PomPom Bulletin Board Makeover
I am making my kids a new art area, having finally decided to eliminate the dress up loft that gets heavy use only around once a week. So I do not want to buy any new stuff for their area but would like for it to look cheerful and creative. I found an old bulletin board and a bag of pompoms from Joann Fabric and decided to jazz it up a bit.
First, I strung lots of pompoms onto embroidery floss, using a wide needle.
Then I decided to dress up the cork by covering it with maps. I happen to have a ton of old maps so they are my go-to decoupage material but you may want to use some pretty gift wrap or craft paper or even fabric. I used matte Mod Podge to glue on the maps and a roller to iron out the wrinkles.
