styrofoam covered with fabric wall art. My daughter and I did this for her room. We used cheap painter canvas and scrapbook paper. We sprayed adhesive glue to the canvas and layed the scrapbook paper on top.
Fabric covered cork board with nail head trim. Made 2 of these for Christmas, my only problem was the nail head trim I used was too long and the nails poke through the back of the board. Other than that they turned out super cute!
Use cork board squares and cover some with scrapbook paper, magnetic paint, chalkboard paint add a frame to finish it. Great idea for a family msg center or even a school bulletin board, or for the girls room, love love love it
