Cork-boards are handy things. I feel like I can never have enough of them around the house. Between notes to family members, reminders and, of course, artwork my kids want to hang up, we love them. But a plain cork-board can be kind of… plain. To soften them up a little and add some zing, wrapping cork-board squares in fabric is an easy step up from the norm. For this project we used vintage pillowcases that are too ripped to use in other projects. Perfect for a little girls bedroom!
Time to complete: 30 minutes
Difficulty level: Intermediate
Things to do:
1. Cut the fabric so that it’s 1/2-inch larger all the way around than the cork squares.
2. Run a bead of hot glue along one edge on the wrong side of the cork and press the fabric into the glue.
3. Pull the opposite side of the fabric tightly across the cork and run another bead of glue on the back side. Pull it around the edge and press the fabric into the glue.
4. Fold the corners in and glue down the remaining raw edges. Allow the glue to dry before hanging the corkboards for use.
