Another Way to Make a Framed Fabric-Covered Pin Board

Posted by Cecilia Katan on

Welcome to Tips’n’Tricks from Pinz’n’Thingz!

In this blog post, I’ll show you another way to make a framed, fabric-covered pin board (because I needed more space to display my growing collection!)

Here's a video of the tutorial! You can also continue below for a written version.

Here’s what you’ll need for this project:

A picture frame;


A foam sheet;


Hot glue;

Spray glue;


And a pencil.

Start by taking the glass and backing out of the frame.

Using the backing as a guide, trace out the size on the cardboard. Be sure to cut on the inside of the line, to leave room for the added thickness of the fabric.

Repeat this with the foam sheet.

Then, with your work surface protected, follow the instructions on the spray can to glue the cardboard and foam together.

Next, using the foam/cardboard piece as a guide, cut a length of fabric with a few centimetres extra all around.

Making sure the foam side is down against the fabric, use hot glue to fold the edges up over the cardboard side.

The foam is essential to this way of making a pin board, because the cardboard itself wouldn’t have enough grip to keep your pins in place.

Next, if you’d like, glue a piece of paper or some more fabric onto the back to make for a neater finish.

Then, insert the fabric-covered pad into the frame, and secure it with the tabs. If your frame doesn’t have tabs, you can hot-glue it directly onto the frame.

And last but not least, have fun organizing your pins into your new framed, fabric-covered pin board!
