I am getting so close to the end of my craft room makeover madness that I need to show off some of my work. Plus, this frugal cork board was a perfect snowy day (yes, I said snowy… in April (and yes I live in Canada)) project. Feast your eyes on my new frugal friend.
I only spent about $4 making this memo board!! Many of the supplies I had on hand. However, if you had to go out and buy everything you would spend about $20, still, that is a pretty cheap project for a substantial piece of useful wall decor.
This cork/ magnet combo is perfect for my craft room, loads of space to pin pictures, magazine clippings, and reminders. Plus, the little cups will hold a few tools, and pencils. The cookie sheet was destined for the trash, so I added a bit of fabric and gave it a new life.
I created the stencil for the back piece of meranti by folding a piece of wrapping paper in quarters and free handing the curves. This way when cut out all sides will be equal. Then cut it out with the jig saw.
I simply glued magnets on buttons with E6000.
The wire candle holders and the large clothespins are from the impulse items at Michaels for only 50¢!
What do you think? Do you have any trash worthy supplies, that could be made into a pin board? I can’t wait to show you the rest!
