I was walking through Hobby Lobby the other day and spied a really cute cork board. Actually I saw a couple - they were all screen printed with these really adorable patterns. And it got me thinking that I could probably pull something off for a lot less since I picked up this cute frame on sale there a couple weeks ago for $5. Here it is all touched up and gorgeous!
So I grabbed a piece of foam board on sale for a $1.99 and then used some cork from a roll that I had from another project.
I then cut to size and glued together with a hot glue gun. Finally - I took a stencil and sponge brush and dabbed some paint on. (Note - you may want to clean your stencil in between applications so you don't end up with smudges!)
$5.99 for the frame and $1.99 for the foam board. Now if I could only find the box with the picture hanging stuff in it! Oh well - I will hang it another day! Have you ever customized a cork board?
