DIY cork boards from IKEA coasters
To turn and you use glitter and Mod-hodgepodge of IKEA coasters in DIY cork-boards! You fit in with the glitter and colors of your choice.
Hi gang! It is Shannon from Rosyscription! I'm back to share a simple organizational craft: DIY cork boards from IKEA coasters. I used a little glitter and decoupage to find upcycle this thrifted.
I recently found this pack of cork trivets at the thrift store for $1.40! The trivets were originally from IKEA and still in the plastic wrap. When I saw you I knew that you would make cute little DIY memo boards.
I used the three pieces to a long memo board in my home office. This would also be a slight back-to-school-crafts-update your child with homework, too.
decorate these trivets in so many ways: paint, ribbon, fabric, etc. But I settled on glitter and stripes... they were easy to make with Mod-hodgepodge. Stripes create a fun, and easy to use.
Plus, the added glitter, a little gold sparkle to the room! How to cork glittered memo boards from the kitchen table.
DIY cork-Boards from coasters
3 cork coaster
White to Tinker and paint
Glitter (I used 3 different shades)
Mod smorgasbord of Satin and Mod hodgepodge gloss
Balsa wood or popsicle sticks
Strong adhesive glue
picture hanging strips
step One: paint the front and edges of each of the sieve with white color. Allow to dry and apply a second coat if needed for complete coverage.
step Two: After the paint dries, use masking tape to create wide strips on each sieve. Brush a thick layer of Mod smorgasbord on each open-strip the area.
coat of the glue generously with glitter and shake off excess (a large trash can is highly recommended! Glitter doesn't get everywhere?).
After the surfaces are covered with glitter, immediately, the Band rip-off, or you'll end up decoupaging the tape to your cork! Allow the Mod-hodgepodge and glitter to dry.
step Three: Once your DIY cork-boards are dry, apply several layers of Mod smorgasbord on the top of the glittering strip and the cork to seal it.
Let the glue dry between each layer. I noticed that some of the loose glitter shed areas of a little in the white stripes than I did.
it did not bother Me . . . I thought that the specks of glitter every camouflage of pin-holes can, the show will later use!
step Four: The picture hanging strips are not safe-stick to the cork (or freshly painted surfaces), so you need something on the back of the cork to attach the strips.
. But popsicle sticks could work here, too. I just attach my wood glued together with a strong, fast glue (e.g., superglue), where I planned the strip. Let the glue dry.
step Five: To hang the plates, bring you your picture hanging strip to the wall and the wood pieces on the back of each memo board, according to the instructions on the packaging.
I used two sets of strips for each Board. Press each memo board against the wall or door until the stripjack with each other.br>NOTE: The easiest way for me to use the coaster, the picture-hanging strips, but you certainly could glue ribbon or a hook on the back of each Board.
I decided to hang the cork boards in a vertical fashion on my closet door in the office. I love how this is an often unused area of the room is a purpose.
Oh, and to add more golden Shine, I used to keep a simple brass-tacks, to my notes and pictures.
I'm so glad I saw these cork coasters . . . decorating them was an easy way to update my home office. Who doesn't love organization that is both functional and cute?
