Bee happy ..... make a notice board

I have been busy making a notice board this weekend.
I had a wooden frame left from the kitchen fitters when they put our kitchen together.
I sprayed it with white paint.
I then with the help of Mr Happy cut some chicken wire to size and stapled this to the back of the frame. As the wire was from a roll 4 hands were great as the roll kept curling back up until cut to size.

Because the cut ends were really sharp I then used my glue gun and stuck down some thick felt over these to cover them up.

My new notice board is ready.
I can use it both ways and if I want to hang it on the wall I will just use some ribbon tied around the frame.

Hope you like my new notice board.
All of the hearts are available to buy in my shop.
Also, don't forget to enter my Valentines giveaway if you haven't already done so, the link to the giveaway post is in my sidebar.

  4. Super cute! That is such a great idea to use the felt to pad those sharp metal points on the back. I have a cabinet with chickenwire doors and am always poking myself.

    Hugs, Estelle xx

    Oh, I'm so behind...had a bad reaction to an antibiotic (at least I think it was that...not taking another to find out). Catching up on my blog friends now. Have a great day, dear.
