DIY Piñata-Inspired Bulletin Boards

Pinata-Bulletin-Boards-with-Smoothfoam-JPriest

So I have a confession:  I am a little obsessed with all things “piñata” right now since I discovered how to make tissue paper fringe really easily. I even tried to piñata the cat! All kidding aside, I have been wanting to make a bulletin board with Smoothfoam sheets for a long time. I could paint it or cover it with fabric or decoupage pretty papers on it, but none of those ideas really floated my boat. Instead, I decided to piñata the Smoothfoam Sheets to make a festive bulletin board! And yes, piñata is now a verb!

I used 6 x 12 Smoothfoam sheets to make three piñata bulletin boards, which I mounted to the wall using Tombow Xtreme Putty. The Smoothfoam makes a great surface for pinning important notes and the tissue fringe is just so fun! Brighten any office with these fun bulletin boards. Here’s how:

To create this project, gather the following supplies:

Three 6″ x 12″ Smoothfoam sheets
Colored tissue papers
Sizzix 3-D Flowers by Eileen Hull
Sizzix Big Shot Machine
Tombow MONO Liquid Glue
Tombow Xtreme Putty
Westcott Brand Scissors
Acrylic craft Paint
Paint brush

These bulletin boards are a great way to liven up your office for the upcoming Mexican Independence Day on September 16 or leave them up for Dia De Los Muertos in October. I plan to leave mine up all year long, as a fun way to decorate the wall in my office.
