Turn a Coffee Sack into a Graphic Bulletin Board
Coffee and feed sacks that once only served a utilitarian purpose are breathing new life into home decor as everything from pillows to wall art. Maya*made shares the sack hack, a great way to transform these utilitarian bags into stylish (and still utilitarian) bulletin boards. This is a great way to reuse a burlap sack and to add some vintage charm to your craft room, kitchen, or home office.You will need a cork board, coffee or feed sack, and a stapler. Maya recommends calling your local roastery and asking if they have any coffee sacks to give away.
- Cut burlap sack along seam to open.
- Measure cork board and cut sack about 2-3 inches larger.
- Position fabric on board, flip over, and staple.
For another crafty green bulletin board idea try making Julie’s T-Shirt Corkboard.
