How to Create a DIY Photo Display Board Out of Recycled Cardboard

This tutorial is all about how I made an upcycled DIY photo display board to display some of those photos instead of leaving them on my phone, where I rarely see them!

Materials Needed – DIY Photo Display Board:

– Cardboard – Fabric  – Twine – Spray Adhesive – Sellotape – Mini Pegs for Photos

Step 1: Cut your Cardboard & Fabric to size

You could cut down a larger box to the size you want and/or tape pieces together to get the shape and thickness you are looking for.

Step 2: Iron your Fabric

I laid my fabric pattern side down on top of an old towel and ironed it on the floor, as it was a fairly large piece.

Step 3: Glue Fabric to Cardboard Backing

I opted for spray adhesive to attach my fabric to my cardboard backing to make my DIY photo display board. Another option might be strong double-sided tape.

Step 4: Add your Twine

Rather than measure it, I just tied it around where I wanted it and cut the ends off after I had secured it with a double knot.

Step 5: Securing the Twine with Sellotape

If you have duct tape or strong packaging tape, you could probably use less as it will be stronger.
