Artsy Bulletin Boards

Use photos and a snippet from a letter written home to create artsy bulletin boards made from cork trivets.

What You Need:

Send an older child off on a solo trip to visit relatives or to camp with his or her own camera.
  • Computer/printer
  • Photo
  • Iron
  • Iron-on transfer paper
  • Light-color cotton or cotton-blend fabric
  • Spray adhesive


1. Scan a photo and letter into your computer. Enlarge and crop them to fit the trivets. Print the images onto iron-on transfer paper. Iron the paper onto light-color cotton or cotton-blend fabric. (Dark fabrics require a special type of transfer paper.)

2. Use spray adhesive to affix the fabric to the cork, smoothing it and wrapping it neatly around to the back of the trivet.
