My kids create massive quantities of art work, a lot of which I feel compelled to keep. I put quite a bit in my cubicle at work. I have a name for my cubicle, kinda cheesy, but I call it the COMA, like the MOMA but Cubicle Of Modern Art, because children’s art work definitely has a modern vibe to it.
I also wanted some place to display some of their artwork at home, so I decided to make a cork board for our play room. When I was at Michaels one day, I noticed they had rolls of cork so I bought oneand also a poster size frame. I chose a white frame because the toy bins I bought for the room are also white.
The cork roll is a little longer than the poster frame, so it will need to be cut down. I used an X-Acto knife.
Then I simply glued the cork to the inside of the back of the picture frame and discarded the clear plastic sheet that would have protected a poster.
I decided the best place to hang the cork board would be above my girls’ art table. Here’s the finished product.
I would recommend using thumb tacks instead of push pins. The cork isn’t as thick as the length of the pin and the thumb tacks have a slightly shorter pin.
