DIY USA CORK BOARD

ultimate red white and blue party

Hi guys, So I am participating in a super fun and festive round up with 110 bloggers who have all teamed up to create the ULTIMATE Red White and Blue Roundup. Oh’ Yeah’ Woo-Hoo! My project that I am sharing with you all is this super cute DIY USA Cork Board! I am pretty tickled with how it turned out and I think its a great tool to help me write down and pin all the fun July events, parades, bbq, picnics, parties, etc. 4th of July is a busy and fun month full of celebrating and those awesome jewels in the sky “fireworks!” Can’t wait! 

Supplies:

– Wood board (found at Walmart in the crafts dept)

– Letter “J” for July or you can use your last name initial

– Paint

– sponge roller brush

– cork board

– cutting mat

– ruler

– xacto blade

– hot glue gun

How To:

I started by sanding down the boards sides, as well as sanding the letter J,  I just wanted them extra smooth. I then painted the sides of the board and painted stripes on the J. I let them dry and sanded them and roughed up the edges a bit. I then set them aside and trimmed two sides to my cork mat, because it was just a little big to fit inside the board. I then transferred my cut out USA Decal from my Silhouette and placed the decal onto the cork mat. I carefully peeled the transfer tape off by rocking it back and forth. I then smoothed it all down real well to make sure it was adhered real nice. I then used crisp white acrylic paint and painted over the vinyl decal. Once it was dry I removed the decal, added some hot glue to the board and placed the cork mat inside. I smoothed out the cork mat and was all done.
