My kids love to be able to display things in their bedrooms, so for each of them I have made cork boards that they can easily hang things and take them down when the don't want them any more.
1st - The cork boards I found where 12" by 12" so for my sons room I used 3 of them.
2nd - I cut a piece of bead board for the back. I used bead board because I had some in my garage and it is light weight.
3rd - I wanted to use three different fabrics for him so I sewed them together and then stapled them around the cork board and bead board.
