I was digging around in my
office/craft room the other day
and stumbled upon an idea.
Now, I don't know if this has
been done before.
(somewhere, I'm sure)
But, if you have seen it or
have done it...let me know.
I haven't seen this version of a
cork board anywhere as of yet.
Still...that's not to say one
Here's what you'll need
to create your own
cork board tile:
12"x12" tile of your choice
12"x12" Cork Square
Fabric of our choice
-enough to cover the front of the tile with cork board on it
Hot glue gun & glue sticks
At first I thought about covering the front of the tile.
But then decided to cover the back side
so that the front side would become the back
giving the cork board a nice finished back.
I poured modpodge on the tile
and smoothed/evened it out
with a foam brush.
Then I placed a the cork square on it.
There was a little over hang so I just
lined it up on two of the four sides.
I stacked my large rolls of vinyl on
it to add pressure while drying.
But, you can use whatever is heavy!
Once dry, I added hot glue to the corners
and down the edges for added measure.
I also used an exacto knife to score off the
little overhang of cork on two sides.
I then used my hot glue gun and covered the
cork board with fabric I got from
I tried to tuck the corners in the same.
Pulling it tightly and adding
hot glue along the way.
There really isn't a rhyme or reason
to how I did it. I just did what worked for me.
Once finished with the covering, I added
matching ribbon to make the back look nice and clean.
I just lined the ribbon up along the edge and
glued it down. I cut 4 strips, one for each side.
See how the front of the tile has become the back?
Nice clean look in case you want to
display it on a plate stand.
And here it is:
It turned out pretty darn good, I think!
What a fun way to display
jewelry, messages, notes, lists, pictures, recipes
and so much more!!
It is possible to hang tile on the
wall as well. But because
of it's heavy duty
build, I placed it on a plate stand.
I'd love to hear what you think!
Thanks for stopping by!
