Tyler and I have been wanting a place that we can post notes and appointments, I had plans of going to buy a cork board when I came across these cork wall panels at Michaels. They would work perfect for what we need, and the best part is that I could turn them into a DIY! I just taught a workshop this week where we made color block serving trays. I love this crafting technique, it’s super approachable and easy to do. Not to mention the different designs and color combinations you could make are endless! For these color block cork boards, I decided to go with earthy tones to compliment the cork. Then I added simple geometric shapes by first applying washi tape to the boards to create a barrier, then painting with acrylics. They turned out beautiful and have a Scandinavian feel to them, which I love! Let’s get to making!
Supplies for DIY color block cork boards!
4.5mm Washi tape
Step one: Apply the washi tape to the cork boards in your desired pattern. I first added a piece of tape diagonally then on a couple I added a piece vertically. Smooth the tape down with your fingers to avoid lifting, you may have to re-smooth the tape while you are painting.
Step two: Apply acrylic paint to the boards using a medium paint brush. Once the paint has dried remove the washi tape from the boards and hang!
