Looking for a large cork board of some kind to use in my office at work (so I can display the cool creative my team is doing) I found the ones online were too expensive and besides I love a challenge. So off I went to Pinterest of course and found the inspiration I needed to make my own bulletin board.
Rather than take the easy route of using an existing cork board I went for the big blank canvas version. To do this I needed to adhere cork to the back side of the canvas. This involved a lot of measuring, cutting and…patience. My suggestion if you are going to do this is to get a LOT of glue and install the cork in smaller pieces because trying to get a large piece of cork onside the plywood frame can cause the cork to rip a little… 🙂 Or simply buy a cork board and wrap it in burlap. The reason I chose the canvas is because I wanted a rather large surface.
So here are the supplies I used – all from Joann. Using my coupons of course the project came to $90 including tax. That is because I also purchased chalkboard placeholders and clothespins to use for hanging items on the board.
The board is ready for pinning!
