Problem: The edges fray.Solution: Occasionally frayed edges add to the character of a project, but maybe a clean edge is more your style. A seam sealant or fray check can help. Coat 1 or 2 inches of the burlap edge in the sealant and let it dry before handling. A more effective technique is to sew a zigzag stitch along the edge of the material. Use regular tension in your sewing machine and a thread similar in color to the burlap to keep the stitch concealed. Design detail: The bulletin board is often a boring office accessory, but it doesn’t have to be. For a simple DIY, wrap your board in burlap or a vintage potato sack, like the example shown here, to give it some personality. Use a staple gun or a hot-glue gun to attach the material to the board. For a more finished look, add upholstery pins or decorative thumbtacks to the front along the edges.

A bulletin board wrapped in burlap provides a place to hang art, awards, school schedules — whatever the boys want to display.
