How to Make a DIY Photo Display Board Out of 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

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

Step 1: Cut your Cardboard & Fabric to size

I literally laid my spare fabric down on top of my cardboard and cut around leaving about a 5cm excess beyond each edge of the cardboard.

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.  

I used rather a lot of sellotape as that is what I had to hand.  If you have duct tape or strong packaging tape you could probably use less as it will be stronger.

Step 5: Securing the Twine with Sellotape
