The materials for this project were bought from a local department store, the fabric we used is actually a sparkly table cloth! It’s certainly amazing what you can find if you use your imagination. You could also check out your local craft or fabric store, they always have a lot of selection.

What you’ll need:

  • Foam board (36” x 24”)
  • Christmas fabric or table cloth (as we used here)
  • Mod Podge glue
  • Hot glue gun/glue sticks
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Ruler/measuring tape
  • 2 foam brushes
  • Push pins
cut the fabric at the corners so it will fit snug

Firstly, measure and and cut your fabric to fit the foam board.  Leave about two inches of material to wrap around the edges of the board. Cut the corners of the fabric to remove any bulkiness, therefore resulting in a nicer fit that’s easier to glue down. 

Use mod-podge to glue the fabric down

Secondly, using the foam brush apply a thick layer of Mod Podge to the back of the foam board.  After that, fold the fabric over the edges to glue it in place.  Continue this process until all of the fabric is secured.  Set the board aside and allow it to dry completely.

Once the mod podge has dried you can add the ribbon.  Measure the lengths you need and cut it to fit. Then, secure the ribbon onto the board with the hot glue gun. Be sure to measure the spacing between each ribbon.  Double check with a card!
