What You'll Need

Hot glue
Glue gun
Duct tape
Push pins

To make school and business displays, or simply for use as a bulletin board to pin articles, notices, and memos, an adhesive foam board is one of the most inexpensive and practical materials you will find available. Here's how to make yours:

Step 1 – Create a Scale Model

Make a rough drawing of the board model you wish to use. Include measurements such as height and width. For example: if your model will be a house, include objects such as a roof, windows, doors, porch or even a picket fence. Add support or decorative pieces by gluing these pieces onto your model. Attach support edges by using strips of cardboard or other strips of foam board.

Step 2 – Create a Fabric Foam Board

Use pieces of fabric or ribbon and cover the face of your board with a section of fabric large enough to cover the entire board. Tuck fabric edges behind the board edges and attach them with glue. To create a border, cut strips from a separate piece of fabric and attach these pieces to the board edges with glue or duct tape.

Step 3 - Finishing Up

Decorate with ribbon. Attach notes and memos with push pins or thumb tacks.
