Need a space in your home to hang up odds and ends that doesn't look like a plain old cork board? How about something that actually looks as good when it's empty as when it's filled with photos, ticket stubs, and all those other things you love to save? We teamed up with Velcro Industries to create this fun and stylish memo board - read on to see how it's done.
- VELCRO® Mini Fasteners (3/8in Dots)
- VELCRO® Brand Plant Tie Roll (in pink, yellow, and blue)
- mini gold nails
- To pin up: fake flowers, gold animal toys, magazine cut outs, photos, a notepad
We went with pop colors for our wall but you could also go more graphic with black VELCRO® Brand tape, or go holiday with red and green!
The items we chose to "pin" up ranged from fake daisies to gold lions to pens and a notepad. Useful and nice to look at :)
First, cut your tape to a length that works with your space.
Use a hammer and nail to attach it to the wall, and angle it however you like and nail at the other end.
Repeat with as many pieces as you like. Layering and angling each time.
It's almost done!
To pin things up, attach VELCRO® Mini Fasteners to your items. How cute is this daisy?
And love being able to throw a to-do list up on there.
And there you have it!
It would make a great memo board above your dresser or vanity.
And adds a great pop of color to any space. Don't be surprised if you see more of these popping up in the background here at Brit HQ!
