Now that I have decided to do something crafty every day, the first step was to work on the craft room a bit. I didn’t have anything on the walls and was using duck tape to put up my stuff. Very un-inspiring!
At the store, we use artists canvases a lot in window display, so I had them send me home 4 big ones, 30×30. Sadly, I couldn’t find cork that size, but did find some 24 x 24, so I just had to figure out how to make the edges pretty. The fabric was in my stash, bought in 2005 when I was going to make a car seat slip cover!
I just stapled the fabric to the back and hot glued the edge to the front. I didn’t need to cover the entire canvas because the cork went over. I simply screwed the cork from the back through the cross bars. Now my cork is not only pretty, I was super easy to attach to the wall using the frame of the canvas. And because I didn’t glue all the edges of the cork (only the corners) I can tuck in things that I don’t want to damage with pins.
Now I need to fill it with inspiration! Lots of it! Finished size is 60 x 60!!!!
