Turn a Coffee Sack into a Graphic Bulletin Board

Burlap Sack Bulletin Board

Bulletin BoardCoffee 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.Coffee SacksYou 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.

  1. Cut burlap sack along seam to open.
  2. Measure cork board and cut sack about 2-3 inches larger.
  3. Position fabric on board, flip over, and staple.
