DIY CorkBoard

What is better than truly making your living area your own by doing fun DIY’s?

I’m always on Pinterest so I come across all kinds of cool DIY’s and some actually seem really hard. I decided doing this simple one that would go great in my room because it seemed pretty quick. (Unfortunately I get really frustrated when things take too long so this project was perfect.)

All you need:

  • A corkboard
  • pins
  • burlap
  • staple gun
  • And I used some blue ribbon to make a pocket(but that is optional)

**** When you shop at Michael’s or Jo-Ann’s google for example “Michael’s coupons” or “Jo-Ann’s coupons” there are usually coupons online for like 40% or even 50% off. Definitely take advantage of that*****

You simply have to cover your board with the burlap. You have to make it really tight the first time because it is easy for the material to bunch up which you’ll then have to redo it.

You don’t have to add the pins, but I did to make a border and I used gold because it matches my room. Use whatever colors you want!

Then I added just a little something extra, I decided this board needed a pocket for my important papers.

When it came to actually putting it up in my room I realized I didn’t have much to put on it. I put my school papers in the pocket and some of my 5k run ribbons up. But I do love this board, especially because I made it!

And the final product:

Let me know what you guys think! And if you have any cool DIY’s I’d love to hear all about them!

Have a great Wednesday โค
