Cute Corkboard Craft

I saw this 4pk of corkboard at Michael’s Arts & Crafts and without being entirely sure of what I would do with it, I bought it (they always get me with that ast minute stuff!). I actually came up with something that I think is super cute and functional, so I had to share it! Check it out.

For this project you’ll need:

  • (1) 4pk of corkboard 12″x12″
  • (4) decorative sheets of scrapbook paper 12″ x 12″  I used this “lace” pattern because of the holes, I didn’t want to poke holes through regular paper because it would leave marks. With this paper I can poke around the design.
  • Craft glue
  • Polycrylic Clear Gloss Protective Finish (Spray)

First I layed all the boards out on a flat surface. Then I brushed the back of sheets of scrapbook paper with craft glue. I watered the glue down a little bit so that it wouldn’t clump. Then I layed the sheets directly onto the corkboard. I took another glue wash and brushed it over the surface.

Once the glue dried, I sprayed it with a little bit of the Polycrylic Spray. The spray gave the cork boards a nice sheen and got rid of the stickiness from the glue.

Then using the adhesive stickers that came with the corkboard, I just hung them up!

And there you have a cute & functional corkboard!

Here’s the before & after of my craft room desk area.

This project took me about 20 min and  only costs $20.00!!!

Happy Crafting!!
