I was eyeing one of those cute cork boards within a picture frame the other day but was too cheap to actually spend the $10.00 on it (lol!) and then I realized that I have all of the supplies laying around my house to make one of my own!
You need a frame (ours was free from the up cycle exchange store moving “sale”).
Spray paint if you don’t like you frame –
A piece of cork board – this was from a project we did last year where we made hanging cork boards for a tween bedroom – Jaia was done with it so I repurposed it. They sell these squares in packages of 4 at Target or a business supply store.
The project came together nicely and I’m pleased with the results –
First – take the glass out of the picture frame and spray paint the frame on a protected surface. Outside is best 🙂
After it’s dry, flip the frame over so it’s upside down on the cork and trace the inside of the picture frame onto your piece of cork – or do this before you paint – it makes no difference what you do first.
Trim the cork to fit .
Put the back of the picture frame into the frame and secure it.
Cover the inside with glue and place your cut to fit piece of cork on the glue –
I just used tacky glue –
Turn it right side down and place a few heavy books on it to help the glue dry flat –
See Rowan- that geometry DOES come in handy!
When it’s dry turn it over and hang! (or set on your desk if the back does not have a hanger –
Cute huh? Jaia wants one now and you can use any size frame!
Enjoy the day!
