Cork Board Art

This is a fun and simple project and the finished result looks great, it makes a spiffy new decoration for any wall. Most of the materials can be found around the house and the rest are cheap and easy to find in any stationary shop or supermarket. So this is how I made mine. 

1. I started off with my cork notice board which I painted baby pink to go with the colour scheme of my room.
You could skip this first step if you want to keep a more rustic feel with the cork board design.
I also found that cork notice boards are a lot cheaper than proper cork tiles.

2. While you wait for the paint to dry you can draw the design outline on some paper. Once it’s dry place it onto the board in the position you want.

3. Start placing your pins or nails over the paper design, make sure you use enough pins to get your desired look.

4. Once you have placed all your pins you can carefully rip of the paper around your pins.

5. Now you’re ready for the fun part. Start by knotting your thread or string onto one of the pins and loop around the other pins until you get your desired look then tie off with another knot. Repeat for each shape or letter of your pin design.
I chose to use a different coloured thread for each shape to make it stand out more.
