DIY IKEA NYTTJA bulletin board (Free stencil template)

This DIY project simmered on my backburner for a while now. My church wanted a bulletin board and I volunteered to make a pair. So, like eons ago, I bought the NYTTJA frames and then left them to languish in my spare room.

Finally, 2 Saturdays ago, I was convicted of my tardiness and rolled up my sleeves.

But it wasn’t entirely my fault (cough… ) you have no idea how hard it is to get a large sheet of corkboard in Malaysia. It’s ridiculous. Shops don’t seem to sell them in large sheets or not already framed as a noticeboard. One of the shops I enquired at said if I wanted large sheets, I needed to order like a 100ft of it. What?! If you know where to source them, please let me know.

I ended up at Daiso (the famous RM5 shop) and I bought A3 sized corkboards and joined two of them into one. It’s not ideal as there’s an ugly joining in the middle but it works.
