How to Make a Peg Board to Organize Your Wedding Planscomments (5) April 12th, 2011
After the paint dries, plan the layout of your peg board. I split mine down the middle—2 feet for calendar and 2 feet for hanging tools. After you determine how much space will be devoted to the calendar, cut pieces of ribbon that are that long plus an extra foot for loops and knots. I decided on four rows of seven loops (one for each day of the week and three loops under each day).
Thread the ribbon through a large-eye needle—that way, it will be easy to weave the ribbon in and out of the peg-board holes.
Tie a square knot at the end of the ribbon and thread the ribbon through the first hole from the right side. (You could do this from the back if you don't want your knot to show.) Come up in the next hole. To make a narrow loop, go back through in the next hole. If you want a larger hoop, skip a hole.
I wanted to create some space between my loops, so I skipped a hole between them. You can skip more than one hole if you want more space to hang larger notes or pictures.
When you get to the end of the row, cut up to the front and tie another square knot to secure the loops. Skip as many rows as you like and weave another row of loops (lined up under the first ones).
After you've made your loop "calendar," use some colorful paper to make labels for the days of the week. Attach them with clothespins to attach them along the top row. Now you're ready to get organized—add notes to remind you about appointments or events.
Then, I put metal hooks on the other side to organize my tools.
After you make this project, show off your work to other members!
