Fabric Wrapped Cork Board DIY – How To Make Cork Board with Fabric.
So today, in honor of sub-zero temperatures, I thought I’d share a project worthy of a polar vortex kind of day …
How To Make Fabric Wrapped Cork Board DIY
Cork Board (I used 12 x 12 cork tiles)
Fabric (I used this gray/beige/white paisley fabric, purchased from an Etsy shop)
Cut the fabric, leaving a 1-2 inch border around all sides.
Add a dot of glue at the corner.
Fold down the corner piece onto hot glue. Hold for a few seconds until dry.
Add a bead of glue along one length of the cork board.
Press fabric down and hold for a few seconds until dry.
Add an extra dot of glue at corner. Fold over and hold until dry.
Okay, now I’m suppose to show you more pictures of how I folded over the other edge of fabric to finish off the corner … but I must’ve gotten distracted or something. Because I simply cannot find any more photos.
So instead I’ll just leave you with the finished fabric wrapped cork board diy project …
but at least the heat is working today! 🙂
I’ll just leave you with a shot of the Chicago polar vortex from @online.chicago on Instagram …
Even with the heat working I’m still wrapped in a furry blanket too! Old houses are drafty! 🙂
Shivering up here in Madison, too! Stay warm!! 😉
Back at ya! 🙂
I live in Darien Il a suburb of Chicago.It was truly thee cldest day,I do remmber -27 in ‘85, but this was bitting, I ok’d yo -24 below,Ordovician ch5 NBC reported. Proud of how this big city shut down, came together to help homeless & each other. Despite crime statistics,this is a great caring place…Sm 68 lived here most my life..just hate the gold.. great blog! 48 days till Spring 2019☔️💐🌷🐥🐰
And just a few weeks until pitchers and catchers are called to Spring training (as my baseball loving husband likes to remind me!). Yes, it was wonderful that the city pulled together. I’m so happy they shut the schools! I remember when I first moved here in winter of ’93/94 we hit -21 one day (with -60 wind chills) and my husband and I still went to work. On the way home we got a flat tire and the spare was literally frozen in the trunk (it was a cheap street junker car). He had to ice pick it out while I had a margarita at the restaurant across the street. He had to come in every 15 minutes or so to warm up! Brrrr!
So my nephew, raised in Tallahassee, is early decision for Northwestern. Yesterday I pointed out that it was just four minutes to frostbite. He said it was fine, he’d run fast.
Lol! And I thought “no big deal” when I moved from NJ. My first winter was a rude awakening! But after 25 years I’ve gotten used to it. Kinda. I prefer double digit temps! 🙂
