I made a soft, studded pinboard

Yeah I mean, I just wanted to. Don’t ask me why.

Cork and stuffing.

Random paraphernalia needed to get it all together. Sharp things, stabby things, soft things.

A piece of foam was cut into the same size as the board.

And then I gridded where I wanted the studs. Then I drilled holes for the studs.

Then I just put the fabric over the foam, sort of how I wanted it.

I didn’t actually know a professional way of doing this so I merely put nails through the holes of the board and through the foam to see where the studs were going,

Then it was time for the studs, I had to cut a little to get them through the fabric.

I made a row at a time because the fabric wants to move when pressed down into the holes.

Finally!

In the corners, there the screws for the wall mounting where supposed to sit, I placed little metal washers so the screws wouldn’t ruin or go through the board with time.

Then I fastened the fabric on the back, constantly flipping it over to see that it’s was working the way I wanted.

TADA! I was never really keen on the fabric and some time on the future I’m making a faux leather one.
