I came across a shop here in Taiwan that sells various sacks and bags that have been used for coffee and agriculture etc., and to satisfy my fetish for all things with Chinese characters I bought a couple and decided to make a noticeboard/pin board out of one. Much like the Taiwan Beer lamp post this has little to do with actually learning Chinese, but I do translate the printed Chinese at the end!
It was really easy to make, all I did was buy a sheet of polystyrene from an art supplies shop:
Then just cut the polystyrene down to fit and inserted it into the sack.
I then used some tacks to pull the sack around the polystyrene.
And there you have it, a Chinese sack noticeboard.
If you’re interested about the Chinese it actually says:
What I’m not sure is why 紫（zǐ）is shown, which means “purple” – are there different types of horse chestnut with a purple inside and not white?
