Back-to-School Display Board

Hey everyone — things just keep getting crazier – in addition to moving into my parents’ basement since our house isn’t done yet, they’re in the middle of a remodel/addition, and working on that today the phone cable was cut – which means no internet – yikes! luckily we were able to rig up a hot spot to bring you today’s post, part of #TheBigBling set in-stores at

This was a fun challenge – I was sent a box of secret supplies (I had no idea what would come) and had to make something that fit into the Back-to-School Big Bling theme – here’s what came in my box:

So I grabbed a few other supplies while I was at JoAnn – – –

My idea is a Back-to-School Display Board.  It’s actually a little more loud and jumbled than I would have made for myself, but I made it with a tween in mind and I think it turned out awesome for that genre – they can clip notes to the chicken wire and display them in their locker, or above their desk in their room, etc.

So, on with the how-to….  First I stuck on the bling – you’ll see below I used the tiny rhinestones in a zig zag, but then I ended up pulling them apart and scattering them all over.

Next I busted out the hot glue gun (I actually had to buy another one, since mine is in storage!) and attached the buttons randomly along the edge of the frame.  Then I used hot glue to attach the pom pom trim along the outer edge for added fun.

I fell in love with this fabric when I was in store (my favorite thing to buy at JoAnn!) and wanted to incorporate it as well.  I used it as a background for the chicken wire and simply attached it with hot glue around the edges from the back side of the frame.

And that was it!  I looped some twine through the hangers on the back to create a loop hanger and attached the flower to that for added fun.  And of course load it with all the notes and inspiration that you want!
