Create Custom Patterned Corkboards

Ashley and Jamin from The Handmade Home created this simple custom corkboard project based off of the 2021 Design Trend, Play Hard. These corkboards can be used as ongoing art and photo displays for the entire year. They are also a sweet reminder to enjoy life every day, and curate a space for play.


First, create a simple pattern by alternating various widths of Frogtape® Painter's Tape to the corkboards. Laying all of the strips of tape at once helps keep the lines even and establishes an easy pattern.

If you wish to add color to your the edges of the corkboard frame, now is the time with everything protected.


Next, pull the tape for an every other line pattern.


Now it's time to paint. In whichever color your like, add lines of color to add the painted pattern to your corkboard. Lastly, pull the tape off of the corkboard and watch the finished product come to life.


For the finishing touches, gather your favorite polaroid photos, family shots, meaningful art and playful reminders.
