Welcome to a new DIY idea I am sure you are going to love.
You are looking at our newest wall art / message board!
This is a corner of our room where our bookcase resides and the space above it is reserved for my icon which you can see here, but I like to move things around so in the several weeks or months (who knows) ahead, this is going to be the place for our cork board. It first started as a wall art idea but we loved how it looked with notes on it and left it like that.
So, to make this easy project you need just 2 things: cork hot pads and fabric. Ikea has them in a set of threes and they are quite inexpensive so if you want to make this massive, there's your bargain.
I used 5 pads and fabric in blue shades. This is also the perfect project if you have gorgeous fabric (scraps) you want to display and beautify your wall.
So, cut a larger round piece than the cork pad and glue it behind / staple it, cut a smaller round piece of the same fabric or felt and cover the back with it. And that's it.
Place them in any fashion you like it - I almost always want to have things a bit off - so this is neither horizontally nor vertically straight ;)
I can imagine a whole wall covered with these pads. I kind of like that idea, but I am afraid it would be too much for my wall. Since this is the room where I work the most, I need quietness and this would be too distracting - 'crowded' and 'noisy' for me.
Would love to hear what you think about this project!
