For this DIY you’ll need:
- 2, 12×12 inch cork boards
- Craft knife
- White acrylic paint (or the color of your choice)
- Spark & Chemistry Note tag PRINTABLES
To make the herringbone pattern, you’ll need to draw a grid on the cork first. If using 12×12 cork boards, mark every three inches across and draw vertical lines down at those marks.
Next cut out your tiles using the craft knife. Can I just say that this was not my favorite part? My hand started cramping on me, but that’s my own fault. I should’ve switched out my knife blade for easier cutting! Lessons learned.
I know seeing a lot of lines can be confusing; we needed them as a guide to make a perfect pattern. Only cut the vertical lines and the diagonal lines. For fun, you can lay the tiles out in the herringbone pattern afterwards to see how it will look. Almost finished! Or, you can actually be done here if you’d like, but I figure it’s best to cover up those ugly marker lines with a little paint.
You’re done! Well, just about. I mounted the tiles with mounting tape which was included, but you can use poster tape, or nails, or you can mount it to a white board first, and then hang the board on the wall all together. But I prefer the free form look, separated from another board.
