Before and after pin board

My old board was 20 tall by 40 wide. me and the kids had outgrown this one a while ago. So after I got back from this trip I made the new which measures 65x38 and added a shelf on top for the vinylmations. Looks like we might need a new one or second one in a few years,

Those are great, I wish we had room in our house for something that size.

Now I'm going to have to show my handiwork. . .

i hadn't thought of the mickey head design and that's prefect for the kid rooms. is that black felt covering it? Stretching it flush on round shapes easy?

Round styrofoam, available at any craft store, black fabric hot glued. Used toothpicks and glue to stick the ears on. Then string attached to each ear with hot glue to hold the thing up.

I ditched the styrofoam in this design. The pins didn't stick very well. I went cork board backing laid on top of styrofoam. Pins seem anchored now. Might take you're idea and cut it out of plywood and glue cork to it

The Mickey and Minnie's were our first boards. and the styrofoam does have it's down sides. The CM board and the Star Wars boards are made out of plywood with foam rubber, I took the foam from our daughters old play area flooring and cut it to fit the plywood molds, then we bought the fabric. The foam is about half an inch thick, made of the same stuff that flip flops are made out of. Tried to find sheets at the hobby store, finally found it at the Lowes int he flooring department.
