Over the weekend I bought a cheap walmart desk that had to be put together. well it came with squares (rectangles, rather) of styrofoam. I have nowhere to hang anything in my room, and would like to use these (there's two) as bulletin boards. I thought of maybe covering them with a cute fabric. The problem is that they're really flimsy. Is there any way to make them sturdier?  Huh

You could attach the styrofoam to cardboard? Either on the back of maybe like a "core" with styrofoam on either side.

i have a bulletin board made of cardboard, and it's a little too thin for the thumbtacks sometimes, so i think a piece of cardboard over the styrofoam, then fabric around both of them would work best.
attaching it to the wall might be tricky, but i'm sure there's some way to do it..
