Stanciled memo board

28 Mag

I made this little bulletin board  in no more than half an hour. It’s Cub Scouts’ style (see the wolf print?), but you could easily decorate it how you prefer, it depends on the stancil you decide to use.

Since it’s very easy to make, and it requires only cheap materials, I think this craft is suitable for children of all ages!

I used THESE cork trivets from Ikea: they are very cheap, and they just have the perfect size.

Here’s what you will need:

This is the how-to:

1) Tape the stancil to the board, then paint your design. In this case I made a wolf’s print, because I thought this activity for my cub scouts; otherwise I’d have rather painted flowery or geometrical designs, or someone’s name or a quote…

2) Starting from the middle top, glue the rope to the board. Consider that the knot should be tied at the middle bottom.

3) Tie the knot.

4) Press the two small nails into the cork board to attach the hook. I’m sure that it has another name in English, but I have no idea what is it!! 🙂

The last thing to do is prevent the rope ends from fraying: you may use white glue or super glue (the last is more resistent but it will change the rope’s color where you apply it)

You are done!! 🙂

Have fun!
