How to: DIY cork board

Do you have any old pictures with frames laying around? But you just don’t know what to do with them!

How about turning them into a cork board for your home office?

While I was sitting at my desk and wondering what to do with this old frame I had and how to make it purposeful for my office, it came to me…a cork board for a vision board, images and ideas for my blog, notes, etc.

I then made a list of what I needed: old picture with frame, hot glue gun and glue sticks, cork boards, and ribbon. I had everything except the cork boards; I ordered three packs from Walmart. They are $6.44 a pack and I did the store pick up (right when you walk in, they are waiting for you). And yes, I did social distancing, sprayed everything with lysol, wiped everything down in my car, and washed my hands as soon as I got home.

First you need to take the picture out of the frame, and this will be the backboard to your cork.

Next, you need to cut your cork to fit. I put in two big squares then drew a line on the place I need to cut for the other pieces.

Plug in your glue gun and get started! Don’t be afraid of it, have fun with it! I am normally not a fan of mixing patterns but I definitely did here!

Then decide on which ribbon you want to use for your board; what type of look or design are you going for? Or, what is your goal for this cork board? I knew I wanted to do a vision board and that is why I framed it the way I did. With smaller and bigger spaces, I have room for notes and pics and bold wording for what I want the next five years to look like.


This is a fun, DIY cork board! Make it you, make it your vision, your style! My end goal is a vision board.

I will be posting that, too!

Tell me what you think. Did you do one? How did it turn out?

XOXO,
