How to Design a Corkboard

Corkboards make great message centers in an office or kitchen. They can hold notes from teachers, your child’s soccer schedule and recent artwork. Cork tiles are a great and very flexible way to add a message center to your home with no restriction on size. You can fit your corkboard into the space you have available with very little cost. You can also add a lot of creativity to the project by adding paint and a frame to customize your corkboard.

  • 1

    Determine what size corkboard you would like to hang. Measure the wall. Cork tiles come in 12-inch by 12-inch squares or 24-inch by 24-inch rectangles. You can cut tiles to size if you have a specific measurement in mind.

  • 2

    Prime the cork tiles with spray primer. Apply the primer outside to avoid ruining furniture or floors. Use a back and forth motion to completely cover the tiles with primer. Allow the primer to dry.

  • 3

    Paint the tiles using acrylic paint and a foam roller. Roll on two coats of paint, allowing the first coat to dry completely before applying the second. Allow the paint to dry.

  • 4

    Hang the cork wall tiles using double-sided foam adhesive.

  • 5

    Hang a frame around the perimeter of the tiles. Most craft stores carry frame kits in varying sizes so that you can customize it to the size of your corkboard. You can also have a frame made to your specifications at any framing store. Because the corkboard will be subject to constant handling, use finish nails to tack the frame into the wall so that it will be sturdy.

  • How to Make a Cloth Covered Corkboard

    Corkboards are a great place to post messages or reminders to yourself and your family. They can also serve as a holding place for pictures, tickets and important notes. Although corkboards are practical, the corrugated brown material they’re made from can be unsightly. Covering it with cloth will usually do the trick. Making a cloth covered corkboard is one of the easiest projects you can complete in an afternoon. It adds a personal touch and can bring great decor to any room or home office space.

  • 1  Choose a thick fabric. The thicker the fabric, the better it will cover up the corkboard’s texture.
  • 2  Figure out what size corkboard you want. Rolls of corkboard are usually about 2 feet wide, but if you want a corkboard that’s wider, mount the strips you cut out onto a piece of cardboard. For example, if you want a 4-foot-by-4-foot corkboard, roll out two 2-feet wide corkboard pieces and mount them onto the piece of cardboard.
  • 3  Roll out and iron the corkboard. This makes it flat and easier to work with.
  • 4  Using the Exacto knife and ruler, measure and cut the size and shape corkboard you want.
  • 5  Attach a hook to the upper back side of the corkboard. This will allow you to hang it up. You can also tack string or ribbon to the corners of the corkboard and hang it that way.
  • 6  Measure the piece of corkboard and cut out a piece of fabric that size, leaving an extra 2 inches on each side.
  • 7  Fold those extra 2 inches over the edge of the corkboard.
  • 8  Smooth out any air bubbles in the fabric, and glue down the edges.
