I love an upcycled project, especially an easy one! Well, this one takes the cake people! This DIY Window Turned Cork Board is sooo easy to make and embellish…let me show you how easy it was!
First… did you know that Elmer’s makes a line of foam boards including cork board and chalkboard too? They are awesome, and for this project I used their cork topped foam board.
I had an old window frame that I picked up from the Habitat for Humanity Restore for $2, and decided to back it with the cork foam board.
I simply used my brad nailer to attach the foam board to the window from the back.
Cute, right? I thought it needed some cute beachy thumbtacks, so I decided to make my own.
I found a few sea shells that we brought back from Hilton Head last year and picked up some flat thumb tacks.
I hot glued the flat side of the thumb tacks on the back of some of my shells, and tada…instant cute little seashell tacks!
They make hanging your to do lists a little more fun!
I sat my new cork board on the back of my desk and tacked up a couple of my favorite photos, my to do list and a test reminder for Kate! It’s super cute and was so inexpensive to make. It reminds me of a few that I have seen in stores for around $40, but mine cost closer to $10 to make!
