DIY: Makeover a magnetic memo board

By Angeli

I have this old tin memo board + calendar at home that was charming, but was begging for a makeover. It looked so dull and sad that it would disappear among the bright and cheerful objects in my studio. Plus I didn’t really use the calendar portion, so it was pretty much useless. I decided to breathe new life into it by wrapping it in fabric. This was a super quick and easy project! Here’s how I did it.

Supplies:

  • Old tin memo board or any sheet of magnetic metal
  • Leftover fabric
  • Washi or masking tape

1

2

Cut your fabric a little bigger than your board, leaving about an inch allowance around the sides.

 

3

Lay your fabric flat on the table, wrong side up, and place your board on top of it (also facing down). Fold the sides over, one side at a time. Secure with tape.

 

4

Make sure you fold the corners at an angle so the fabric lays flat.

 

5

Secure with tape.

 

6

Check the front and make sure the fabric is pulled taut. Secure with more tape. This is how the back of my board looks like.

Ta-da! Easy peasy right? Now it won’t go unnoticed in my studio!
