Tutorial: A groovy, tie-dye bulletin board any tween will love

Who am I kidding? I love this Tie-Dye Bulletin Board, too. It’s the first installment of “craft lite” projects that I’ve lined up for this holiday week. Why “craft lite”? Because after you whip up this DIY, tie-dye memo board, you’ll still have plenty of time to get outdoors and enjoy. (And you’ll have time to enter our patriotic project giveaway.)

how to make your own bulletin board from fabric and foam

A Tie-Dye memo board makes organizing fun!

To make a Tie-Dye Bulletin Board, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam, 1” x 12” x 12” block*
  • Craft bandana in tie-dye pattern or 14” x 14” square of tie-dye fabric
  • Flower lei
  • Straight pins
  • Low-temp glue gun & glue sticks
  • Tools needed: Scissors; transparent tape

*Note: If a 1” x 12” x 12” block is not available, you can cut to size a larger sheet.

To make a Tie-Dye Bulletin Board:

1. Place your bandana or fabric face down on your work surface. Center the foam square on the bandana or fabric.

2. Wrap the fabric around the foam square as if you are wrapping a package, neatly folding in the corners.

3. Pin and glue the fabric to the back of the foam block.

4. Cut apart the flower lei and tape the ends. If the lei is too long, trim the ends and tape again. Pin and glue the lei to the back of the bulletin board.

And, that’s it.

If you enjoyed any of Patty Schaffer’s patriotic bandana crafts from last week, don’t miss out on your chance to win one. I’m drawing names after midnight tonight and I’ll announce the winners tomorrow.

Peace out,
