Basketweave Burlap Inspiration Board

I had a corkboard in a fram that I really didn't like. I found this idea at Jones Design Company. You can find her great tutorual here.

I started by cutting 2 pieces of burlap 3 inches wider and longer than my corkboard. I then cut those into 3 inch strips.


You then want to use push pins to position each strip vertically and horizontally.


Start your basketweave pattern.


Once you have woven all the pieces. You will want ot flip the board over and staple one edge vertically and one edge horizontally.


You then want to pull the other ends of the strip tight and staple them. Work horizontally and them vertically so you can make adustments to the burlap if you need to.

Here is the finished board.


I hung it in my craft room as my inspiration board.

Hope this inspires you to create your own inspiration board.
