happy boards

Injecting a little happy in a room never hurts.  See a fabric that releases endorphins??  Maybe it’s perfect for this project:


  1. glue (basic white glue) rolled cork onto foam core (cut to frame size) – place heavy object on top while drying to prevent curling
  2. cut quilt padding 2″ wider than cork piece, use spray adhesive to adhere to front, pull padding around all sides, tape excess to back
  3. place fabric over top, pull taut all around, secure edges to backside with hot glue or tape
  4. put happy board in frame – voila!

 Additional tips: 

  • make sure the board is thick enough for tacks
  • add ribbons crisscross or straight
  • check fabric orientation prior to finishing step 3
