Make a Padded Cork Bulletin Board

Instead of hanging a plain cork bulletin board on the wall, add fabric and batting to make a padded bulletin board appropriate for use in the home or office. Choose from a variety of fabric types, and add decorative accessories for a personal touch.

1 Measure the cork bulletin board, and cut out the desired fabric three inches larger than the board itself. Set the fabric aside.

2 Cut out the fabric batting two inches larger than the cork board. Set it aside.

3 Place the batting on the counter, and center the cork board, right-side down on top of the batting. Fold one edge of the batting over the board. Secure the batting to the board with the staple gun. Next staple the opposite side, and work your way around the board.

4 Place the fabric on the counter, right-side down, and center the batting-covered board on top of the fabric.

5 Tightly pull the fabric up and over the board and secure it with the staple gun. Repeat with each side, tightly pulling the fabric before stapling it down.

6 Check your work and trim off excess fabric once you have finished stapling.

Cork Fabric Design

Cork fabric, also known as cork leather or cork skin, is a natural product. The cork fabric is produced from thin sheets of natural cork obtained directly from the bark of the cork oak tree. These thin cork sheets are laminated to a fabric support backing using a specialized proprietary technique. The grade of the backing varies depending on the use of the cork fabric.

The durability of the cork fabric is remarkable. To prevent staining, the cork fabric is protected with a fabric protection spray. In terms of durability, cork fabric wears similiarily to leather which is another reason this cork fabric is ofen called Cork Leather. The main difference between cork leather and regular leather is cork leather can get wet – actually it can be washed using hot water in a washing machine.

Cork fabric is environmentally friendly, hypoallergenic, water resistant and stain resistant.
