Homework/desk Board

My brother and sister-in-law just finished new rooms for their boys and she wanted something to put above their desks in their new rooms.  Here is what I came up with.

I measured the space and had my husband cut a board the right size.

Then I used batting and fabric to create the ribbon memo board.  I didn’t follow to normal pattern for the ribbon I did what I thought would look cool and different. I like how it turned out.

We found some baseball buttons that I used here.

I didn’t get any pictures of how we attached this.

After that I used some cork board and paper to create the other squares.

We also screwed hold into cans and the board and then covered them with fabric to create space for them to store pens and such.

I really like how they turned out!
