DIY Cork Board for Wall

I always put sticker notes directly on the wall. But sooner or later they will fall. So I think it is time for me to make a decent heavy duty cork board to put all my notes on it.

The idea actually comes from one of “5 minutes craft channel” on Youtube. They have so many different videos and I love to watch them when I have some spare time.

Materials I used,

  1. 8 Straight Corks

2. Whitewash Framed Wood Wall Decor

Procedure is straightforward. Cut wine corks in half and place it on the wood board as you want. And then use the hot glue gun to fix them. For this size of wood board, I used about 65 pieces corks.

At last I paint the frame and several randomly picked corks with acrylic paint. Wipe the frame with some wipe-on polyurethane. And ta-da~

Now I can enjoy my pinch time on cork board~ O(∩_∩)O

PS: my mom says it feels like Pharaoh’s tomb……


Hope you like it~:D

My paintings are an outlet to express the imagination I have inside my head that I can not put into words. After trying many mediums, I always find myself coming back to paint and brushes. In my current artistic practice, I use oil paint and mainly create portraits of mythical creatures and animals transfixed in the shifting colours of seascapes and landscapes. There is a natural spirit and magic to these creatures and their energy draws me in. Choosing to paint these creatures as real living wildlife rather than abstractions, I use bold and vivid colours to express the imaginary intertwined with reality, finding magic between the seams. Using a saturated colour palette, I create bold and striking imagery, contrasted between foreground and background, subject and landscape, and light and darkness. Weaving their bodies and the surface of the landscape into each other through organic forms and flowing brush strokes, I find beauty, strength and innocence in these creatures that reflect my inner world.
