How to Make Memo Boards for the Home

Everyone needs a place that they can designate to jot down notes and post reminders from time to time. Especially if you’re a business owner. Or if you work from home. Welcome to the wonderful world of memo boards.

Christmas cards, invitations, mail, coupons, recipes, business cards, art projects, and menus can easily pile up on the kitchen table creating a mess. Some of these things could probably be filed or thrown away. But they’ve piled up on the table so high that you don’t want to take the time to go through it now. Do yourself a favor and get organized by creating a memo board.

There’s no need to go out and buy an overpriced memo board. You can simply make one by making use of thrifty items you have around the house already.

Here are some clever ways to make a memo board that are simple and inexpensive: 

Bike Wheel Memo Board

Old fashioned bike wheels make wonderful memo boards. If you don’t have one you can find them at flea markets or on eBay for cheap. This is a good board to hang postcards, pictures, and business cards on.

Chalkboard Memo Board

By taking magnetic chalkboard paint you can paint a wall or a door to use as your own personal chalkboard. This board is ideal for anyone that will proactively use it on a daily basis. On this board, you can write, erase, hang things, and even decorate. 

Cookie Sheet Memo Board

Thanks to Sadie Seasongoods we now know how to create a fun diy cookie sheet memo board. It’s simple. Start by taking any old metal (not aluminum) cookie sheet cleaning it and painting it your favorite color. After that, you can create a backdrop by using colored paper, duct tape, or even fabric. This is a fun and easy project that anyone can do. 

Paper Roll Memo Board

Calling all list lovers! If you’re one of those people who love your list, this is the memo board for you. Instead of writing all of your lists out on sticky notes or on the back of a napkin simply install a roll of paper to your wall for a spot to jot. 

Shutter Memo Board

Did you know you can take an old shutter and restore it to make an awesome memo board? You do now! Just paint it and put it up wherever you’d like. This memo board is perfect for hanging outgoing mail, Christmas cards, and even your car keys. You could even use this memo board as a cute vintage housewarming gift.

Wine Cork Memo Board

There’s plenty of reasons to save your wine corks when you’re done with them. And one of those reasons is because you can make a memo board out of them. This is a really fun project to make to place in your kitchen, living room, or dining room and hang pictures on. You might need a lot of wine corks for this particular project depending on how big you want your memo board to be. So if you’re a wine drinker you better get to drinking!
