There is perhaps no easier project that this one I am sharing with you today. The materials are few (and cheap!). The methods are simple and the time is minimal. Who can ask for more? oh yes...cuteness -- that is covered too!
The story starts with a plain jane corkboard (yard sales have these in abundance for a dollar or two!). You probably have one sitting somewhere around your home.
The plot thickens when you want a little va-va-voom in your office (or closet!). Pick out your favorite bit of fabric, or take a trip to the remnant bin for 1/2 a yard or so. (What?! You've never been diggin through a remnant bin? Start out by visiting your local WalMart...visit the fabric section and ask the nice ladies for the remnant bin. They'll show you. You'll never buy off the bolt again. Ok...maybe you will if you need more than a yard of fabric, but who needs more than a yard of fabric anyway annnnnnnnnd HUSH. Just go. Buy pretty fabric.) Another tip - exterior fabric works really well for this project, so if you find some, grab it!
I chose polka dot fabric. In red...and brown and black and navy too, but who is counting...

#4 Turn the board around and start pinning the fabric down around the inside edges of the frame. With the polka dot pattern, I tried to place the white pins in the diagonal red spaces to make the spacing intentional instead of random.
