Chevron Corkboard DIY Home Project

alt

Getting organised for spring? Set up a work area for you or study area for your kids in your home. A simple DIY home project using adhesive corkboards goes great over your child’s desk, or in your office! And, it’s cheap—I got my corkboard set at Target for less than a dollar, so try this easy DIY today! 

Supplies:

  • adhesive corkboards (think about your layout when deciding how many corkboards to use—I used 12)
  • soft pastels
  • tape

Instructions:

Step 1: Tear a piece of tape and lay it diagonally on the corkboard. Use another piece of tape and do the same so a stripe peeks out from between the two pieces of tape.

Step 2: Using one of your soft pastels (pick any colour you like), colour in the area exposed between the pieces of tape.

Step 3: Tear off the tape (the benefit of using pastels as opposed to paint is that you don’t have to wait for anything dry!)

Step 4: Repeat the process with your other corkboards making pattern. Experiment with stripe patterns or colours—use your imagination!

Step 5: Strip off the adhesive and place the corkboards on the wall over a desk as a place to tack photos and notes.
