Project Display Board

Or I guess I should say……..
project/photo/bills/chores/etc. display board

The uses are endless. And you can make this little board fit the theme of any of your decor.
So it blends right in.


I just needed a solution for wet art that was making a mess touching other things in my home.

Solved that problem.

All I did was cover a board with a layer of Mod Podge and then layed a piece of fabric on top of that. (and I used this tutorial to fold down around the corners/edges of the board.)

And then I covered the front and sides with a nice layer of Mod Podge.

Then I covered some jumbo wooden clothes pins the same way. But only the front of the pins.

Next, I let everything dry completely and the hot glued the jumbo pins to the board. Lastly, I added ribbons and buttons….but that’s completely optional.

Great for all sorts of purposes.

    I love it! I made something similar years ago, but using liquid nails to adhere the pins, to hang a crib quilt on the wall. Worked great and was sooo cute! Thanks for sharing this idea – I definitely will try it with the fabric and modge podge for my new office.

    I love this idea! I really need to buy clothespins, because I keep seeing crafts I want to do with them. Would definitely come in handy for drying wet artwork, but I also think I'll make one for bills and hang it in a recess where it is a bit out of the way. I just got a new label maker, and I might label the pins "paid – to be filed," "need to pay," "need to make a phonecall" etc. 2010 is my year to get organized. Thanks for the idea!

    It's a great idea! A lot of the people in my ward this past month made one for each child. The whole top had a row of pictures of the child, to show it was their board, and then clothespins or clips to hang artwork! Just another idea! :)

    super cute, what a great idea! I was wondering if you or any of your readers had any ideas for a cute jewelry type holder. One that could hold stud earings, hook earrings and a couple watches/bracelets.

    LOVE this! Where did you find the clothespins? I couldn't find them at Michael's. I'm thinking of doing a long one of these over my couch with a little more decorative pins and some sepia pictures. Great idea!

    I love this idea and really want to do it. Question though- I'm new to mod podge so I'm wondering why you put a layer of it on the top and sides of the fabric?

    Emily says:

    Very cute! Right now I use a magnetic strip (modpodged with purdy paper, of course), but this one is super-cute and I may just have to make it too!! Congrats on your move…..I HATE to move, I even get anxious hearing about other people moving, so I'm glad it went well :)

    Ashley says:

    I love all of your other uses for this…..I may have to try some out for myself.

    I bought the clothes pins at a local craft store so it may be hit or miss when you check your local stores out. Or you may be able to find some online.

    The pins are about 6 x 1.25 inches and the board is about 24 x 5.5 inches, in case you're wanting to make something similar.

    Rachel Marie, I mod podge over the top of the fabric to seal it all in. It also keep the fabric from peeling off and is barely visible. You can feel a difference but you can't really see one. It just makes the fabric a part of the board. Try it out and you'll see what I mean!!

    TrudyAnn says:

    I found these clothes pins at they have a sliding price scale depending on how many you buy. 12 – 17 cost about $1.19 @ and less the more you buy. I bought 20 for $1.04 @ to make a couple of really bid boards, one for my daughter and one for me. Hope this helps! TrudyAnn

    I'd vote for this to show up on Mod Podge Rocks. Very cute. My son made the same thing in summer camp one year (umm, not as "pretty" as this but still cute). He made it specifically for work, where I did use it till I left that job. Now he's 19 and it's still hanging in the kitchen and I must say it is pretty darn useful. It really works well. Lots of possibilities with this project from a pretty one like yours carefully coordinated to the decor, to a simple kid's craft, to ones with labels for specific info. So low tech but so useful.
