Give your teen a customized bulletin board that expresses their style! Learn how to make your own style tile!
Pottery Barn Teen is featuring customized “Style Tile Boards”, which are really quite nice, for a “lovely” price.
I love to replicate what the top catalog stores are feeding the masses.
But if I can do it for a teeny-tiny fraction of what retail charges then you’ll see me doing a happy dance!
Today I raided the pile of donation bags that have been piling up in my laundry room.
I chose several t-shirts that my daughters have discarded (Aeropostale and AE reign supreme in our hood!).
I headed over to “Tar-jzay” (Target) where I can be found several times a week.
(It’s sad when you’re such a “regular” that the employees know your name!)
I found these 12×12 cork tiles ($6 for 4) at Target along with 24×36 poster board ($24).
I chose a 24×36” frame because I knew I could fit six 12” squares inside the frame, (two rows of three squares).
I also picked up a few sheets of foam core board.
They were out of white board so that’s why I have black board.
I cut the boards into 12×12” squares.
I took those discarded t-shirts, cut out squares a little larger than 12×12” and secured them to foam core with a glue gun.
Below are my fabric covered and cork squares.
Disassemble your poster board frame. You will not be using the thick plastic inset.
Lay the frame backboard on a flat surface.
Once you have the squares covered, arrange them on the backboard of your poster board.
Use your glue gun to secure them to the board.
You can also use double sided foam tape or spray adhesive if you prefer.
Insert the backing board into your frame and secure. Voila!
My girls love their bling. The rhinestone Aero shirt gives the board extra glitz!
Search your closets, grab those discards, and create your own style tile board your child will love!
