DIY Velcro Board

Making your own Velcro board is easy and relatively cheap. You can use a Velcro board as a communication display board, as a $5 accent rug from Walmart or another discount store, an adhesive (I used heavy duty Krazy Glue), hook Velcro (the heavy duty works best), decorative duct tape and something to use as the hard surface for attaching the rug (I used a white board - the picture is deceptive the board is much larger than it appears).

Basically you want to cut the rug to fit on your board. Glue, staple, cement or whatever and adhere the rug to the board. Now you want to use your duct tape for three purposes all at the same time - to further adhere the rug, to keep bits of carpet falling off and to make it visually appealing.

Then you are good to go! (Although letting the glue dry is a a good idea!). Enjoy your new Velcro board!

  1. What type of carpet did you use for this? Is it nylon or a different type of material?
    Great idea! Thanks!
