I am linking up with Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics for her weekly “Monday Made It!”
This may be one of my favourite things I’ve crafted in awhile. The best thing about it is it cost me $0 to make! I already had everything at home!
Corkboard – I had these 2 square corkboards sitting around in a bin. They came in a pack of 4 squares and I had 2 up on the wall in the computer room already. Any size corkboard would do.
Paint- I used some acrylic craft paint which I already had in the house.
Brushes- I used some little foam brushes I had to sponge paint it.
Tape- I just used masking tape and my lines turned out pretty neat.
Pencil and Ruler- To measure out lines before you tape.
Exacto Knife- Just to clean up some of the tape corners so they are straight.
Chevron Tutorial- I found this great tutorial by Amanda over at Mommy is CooCoo (haha) Even her 5 year old could make chevron stripes!
Step 1: Follow the tutorial that Amanda made. :)
Hard to see but all my squares are traced.
Step 2: Make sure your tape is firmly down and paint! I tried to do an Ombre effect…not sure if I achieved it.
tep 3. Let dry and then remove the tape!
I don’t even want to put any tacks in it! It’s too pretty! I am now tempted to take down my other 2 which are holding pics and info and paint them too!
Now to find a place in my classroom for them!
