Cork Board

I have some neat push-pins my sister gave me.  Several look like pairs of shoes; some newer ones she made from Sculpey that have teacups on them.  I had a nice cork board at our old place, but it was glued/nailed to the wall and was left behind.  The pins have been in storage since we moved.

I didn't like the plain cork boards I saw in the store.  Besides, I discovered my stash of wine corks after the move and decided to make my own cork board.  I found the frame at Michaels and then discovered I didn't have enough corks to fill it.  (My wine-drinking friends are now laughing at me or gasping in horror.)  I finally collected enough corks this week and set to work on gluing everything down.

I'm happy with it.  There's two small gaps I may eventually fill in, but I'm likely to be the only person to notice.  It's a tiny cork board compared to others I've seen with this design.  But it's big enough to show off my push pins, keep track of a few receipts and it fits right over the coat hook in the kitchen.  Perfect.

  1. Neat project! The gaps were pretty well hidden. Perfect place to pin the pigs' veggie grocery list.
