DIY Cork Wall Tutorial

A few weeks ago my husband built me a cork wall for our hallway command center.  I had been looking for a way to display all of the artwork that my kids come home with from school.  We love the way it turned out!

Materials Needed:

Cork Tiles

Foam Board

– Screws

Spray Adhesive

We first cut the foam board to size and then screwed it to the walls.  Since the cork tiles are relatively thin we didn’t want tons of holes in the wall with every push pin.

Then we simply sprayed the back of each cork tile with adhesive and applied it to the foam bard.  I must say that we first tried the route of the cork rolls which didn’t seem to go on as smoothly as we’d like.  The cork tiles were an easier option that allowed us to end up with the look we wanted.

The kids love seeing their artwork displayed and have been busy creating more and more since we’ve put the wall up.
