It’s not Christmas yet, so I still have time to post about my daughter’s Christmas cork board. I love it; she loves it. Win/win. Of course, I have no artistic skills whatsoever, so I relied on good ol’ ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape to help with…well, basically everything.
The supplies are easy enough. I used–
- An inexpensive frame
- Some cork board (duh)
- Sparey adhesive
- A yardstick
- A couple of acrylic paints
- A tube of Rub n’ Buff in Antique Gold (ignore the spray paint in the picture)
- ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape
So here we go… I measured out the corkboard and made the tree as large as I could. I used a yardstick to measure it out.
Once I had the outline, I used the ScotchBlue™ tape to trace off the tree area. It seals beautifully, but make sure to press it down at the edges.
Once the outside was painted, I peeled back the tape to reveal my pretty little tree.
Next, I simply taped off random sections and painted them white, pink, and gold. There was no structure to it. I just taped off and eyed it. I made the bottom (trunk) of it polka dots to mix things up. Strategery, I tell ya!
Once it was all finished, I put the backing on so it would stay secure.
Aaaand done. So cute, right? It’s all ready for her Christmas notes, pictures, and cards.
