With kids having headed off to college, try making this cork board for your student! It’s easy to hang on the wall, the side or front of the closet, or on the desk. Directions are below.
I purchased a package of cork boards from Hobby Lobby. Four cork boards come in the package.
Rather than using thumbtacks, I chose to decorate clothspins and permanently mount them to the cork board.
Fabric flowers and bright green ribbon are used to embellish cork board.
Attach the coordinating green piece of ribbon as trim.
Finished ribbon boarder.
Attach fabric flowers to the cork board at the point where the ribbon intersects.
Use large and small size clothespins to make embellished clothespins.
Beads used to embellish clothespins.
Attach beads to clothespins using hot glue.
Attach beads to large clothespins with hot glue.
Attach more beads to the small clothespins with glue gun.
Attach clothespins to cork board with hot glue.
Cork board after clothespins have been glued to the board. Now you are ready to hang in a dorm. (Or keep it for yourself).
