How to make a Disney Princess Memo Board
My niece is turning 4! I can’t believe it, she’s gotten so big so fast and she’s making Auntie Becca feel really old!
I wanted to do something special for her this year, they just got a new place and she has a new bedroom to decorate so I wanted to make her something for her room. She’s really into Cinderella right now, so I also knew I wanted to do something with a Disney Princess theme. I thought a Disney Princess Memo Board would make a perfect Birthday gift.
A few weeks ago, I was in Michael’s and found a 4 pack of 12″ x 12″ cork boards, instantly I knew I could turn them into some super cute memo boards!
I thought it would be the perfect way to make a Disney Princess Memo Board to decorate her room, and she could put her own pictures on it! So I went all in, I pulled out the tulle and the flowers, the ribbon and the glitter, to make this cute little craft!
Disney Princess Memo Board Tutorial
- 1 – 12″ x 12″ cork board
- 1/4 yd of fabric of your choice
- 1 1/2 yards tulle
- 1 1/2 yds of shorter tulle
- 10-15 buttons
- 4 yds 1/2 inch ribbon
- 1 yd 1 1/2 in ribbon
- 5 push pins
- 5 embellishment flowers
- Staple gun
- Hot glue gun and glue
- 12″ x 12″ Felt (optional)
- Spray glitter (optional)
I was bad and didn’t take step by step photos… it’s a really simple project and I will try to keep the instructions as simple as possible. I know, it’s almost as bad as forgetting to take that “Before” photo!
Lay fabric out upside down and place cork board on top of it.
Cut fabric in a square, leaving about 2 inches of fabric on each side of the cork board.
Fold one side of fabric over and staple down, fold the opposite side over, make sure it’s nice and tight and staple.
Fold the other two sides in, making sure to fold the corner under like you would if you were wrapping a gift so they don’t hang over the edge. Make sure to pull fabric nice and tight and then staple.
Flip over, if you have a fabric like I did, you might want to have your ribbon go through a certain space in the pattern. I wanted mine to go in between each of the princesses. Measure your ribbon out depending on the length and position you want it, and make sure to leave about 1 1/2 to 2 inches of extra ribbon at the end of each side.
While holding your ribbon in place, do one piece at a time, flip your board over and staple each end of the ribbon to the back of the board. Do this with each piece until you have a nice criss-cross all over your board.
Using a hot glue gun, attach your buttons at the points where the ribbon intersects. You might want to put a tiny bit of extra glue between the ribbon and the fabric here to make sure it holds once you put photos in it.
Now it’s time for the trim, just take your hot glue gun and glue the edges of the tulle to the sides of the board. I put the long tulle on first and then the shorter tulle.
Now it’s time to put on the ribbon you’ll hang it by. Cut your ribbon into two even lengths, staple each piece about 2 inches down in the corners of the top of the board. Bring the other ends of the ribbon up and tie into a bow.
Finally, we reach the finishing touches. I couldn’t find any Disney Princess push pins, so I decided to make some girly ones of my own. Push the pins into the board. Use glue to adhere flowers to the tops of the pins, you now have a very girl push pin!
Two optional things you can do is glue a 12″ x 12″ piece of felt onto the back of the board to cover up the loose ends and staples, you don’t have to do this if you don’t want, the back is going to be up against a wall anyway.
You can also spray it over with some glitter spray, not spray paint but the kind that you can put in your hair on Halloween. It just gives it a little extra glam!
I’m really happy with how this project turned out, it’s so cute in real life! I hope she’ll like it as much as I think she will!
You might be thinking, it’s cute, but I don’t have girls, or maybe your a college student or need something to decorate your office with, well I love this project because the same steps can easily be applied with any theme! I’m actually working on a few others for gifts right now, they’re just so simple and fun to make!
