Are you in back-to-school mode with the kiddos? So is Gillian from Seasons Gredings. In order to have a place to store her children’s schoolwork and art, she made this handy dandy vintage inspired cork board. There’s also a chalkboard, which just adds to the greatness factor. I’ll let Gillian tell you how she did it.
Hi all you fun Mod Podgers! This is Gillian Greding from Seasons Gredings and I’m so excited to be visiting the ultimate craft blog – Mod Podge Rocks – today! This place is like an encyclopedia of craftiness!!! Love it!
Four of my five kids returned to school last week, so I thought, “what a perfect craft for the season” – a vintage ABC cork board. The perfect spot for all your little ones’ latest works of art.
- Mod Podge (of course!
- hot glue
- cork square
- chalkboard paint
- paper mache letters
- push pins
- embellishment for push pins
- 3 different papers
- ball trim
Paint the canvas with chalkboard paint (about 2 coats will do).
Trace the letters onto the BACK of the paper.
Cut out the letters.
Paint Mod Podge onto the face of the letter.
Place paper onto the letter and rub down with a small towel so bubbles won’t form.
Sand the edges down with sandpaper to distress.
Cover entire face of the letter with Mod Podge.
Glue the cork square to the painted canvas.
Using a glue gun, adhere paper pompoms (or whatever you decide to use) to the pushpins.
Glue the gathered lace to the top of the cork board.
Glue the ball trim on top of the gathered lace.
Glue the un-gathered lace to the bottom of the cork board.
Glue the letters to the painted canvas.
Enjoy your vintage ABC cork board!
Thank you for letting me stop by for a spell, Mod Podge Rocks!
