DIY Burlap Message Board. Simply wrap the burlap around an inexpensive framed corkboard and, making sure it’s very taut, use a staple gun to secure the fabric onto the underside of the wood frame at each of the four corners. Then place staples around the perimeter of the frames underside as well. Finish the piece by pushing nailheads into place around the border of the frame; if they’re stubborn, gently hammer them into place instead.
