First: Prepare yourself
Take measurements of your cork board to ensure that you have enough fabric and decorative trim. Cover your table or work surface with newspaper. Measure your cloth material, leaving an extra two inches to accommodate for a stapled border.
Second: Make it stick
Use adhesive spray on the surface of the cork board, covering it entirely to secure the fabric. Position the fabric so that it is centered on the cork board, and smooth out any wrinkles working outward from the center. Tug the material taut. Flip the cork board over and staple the remainder of the fabric on the reverse side, making sure the edges are smooth (if using a framed cork board, you may need to staple on both sides).
Third: Trim it up
