I love being part of the Michaels Makers team! This month the theme was “Back to School”. My kids go back to school on Monday, so this was perfect for us!!
I made this DIY Back to School Organization Door last week and I wanted to make a corkboard for the organization door. A place to put “to-do lists”, grocery lists, inspirational art and more! So I headed over to Michaels.
Here’s how to make the DIY Burlap Corkboard:
A canvas-wrapped board in the size you need for your project
Burlap to cover the board. Measure the board and add 4 inches to all sides.
Cork to cover the front of the board
Hot glue or adhesive to glue the cork to the canvas
Upholstery tacks for a finishing touch
Staple gun to staple burlap onto the back of the canvas
Cut the cork to the same size as the front of the canvas board
Use hot glue or adhesive to glue the cork onto the front of the canvas
Lay the canvas board on top of the burlap – face-down – and wrap the burlap around the canvas
Use a staple gun to glue gun to adhere the burlap onto the canvas
Add some upholstery tacks to the front of the board for a finishing touch
How to make the DIY Push Pins:
Buttons or other embellishments
Take embellishments and glue them onto the thumbtacks with E9000 or other adhesive
Once dry — use them on your cork board!
