DIY: Rapunzel Bulletin Board

I have been using a plain brown bulletin board for many years, and it finally occurred to me that I should paint it! I decided to give it a Rapunzel inspired look. This only took me about an hour to do and was so easy and fun!

Supplies needed:
Bulletin board
Paint of your choice
Paint brush

First, I laid out some newspaper so I wouldn't make a mess. Then, I used notecards to stick around the frame so I wouldn't get paint on the cork board. Next, I painted the frame with metallic purple and sprinkled fine glitter one it while it was still wet.
(Tip: Put a phone book under your bulletin board so it won't stick to your newspaper after you paint it)

I picked out jewels to match Rapunzel's colors which are purple, pink, yellow and gold (orange)

Then, I would put a dot of glue on the frame and stick my jewels to it.

You can put how ever many jewels as you want. You could also use little stickers if you don't want to mess with glue!

After I let my frame dry over night, I hung up my bulletin board and pinned some of my favorite things to it!


Have you ever taken something from boring to fabulous?
Let me know what you've remodeled!


  1. You're so crafty! I love it!

  2. That looks awesome! A great way to make something look awesome. ^^

  3. So cheerful! I should probably do something with my board when I finally get around to revamping my desk area.

  4. So many jewels. That would cost so much to make here in Australia. Just the jewels would be $20. You are so lucky. It looks so lovely.
