Cover an old corkboard with denim and recycled blue jean pockets. This ingenious project provides pockets not only to hold items without push pins, but provides a revitalized surface that rejuvenates an old cork board. Allow approximately 60 minutes to complete the cork board project.

Things You’ll Need:

Cork bulletin board
1 yard new denim
Spray adhesive
Utility or craft knife
3 or 4 blue jean pockets
Hot glue gun
Hot glue sticks

Instructions:

Step 1 – Place the cork bulletin board on a flat work surface. Cut a piece of denim 1-inch wider than the dimensions of the cork surface.

Step 2 – Turn the denim over so the back is facing up. Spray a layer of adhesive over the surface. Allow the adhesive to sit 30 seconds. Immediately flip the denim over and center it over the cork bulletin board. Press into place. Allow the spray adhesive to dry 30 minutes.

Step 3 – Cut the excess denim from the cork bulletin board with a utility knife or craft knife.

Step 4 – Hot glue 3 to 4 blue jean pockets on the cork bulletin board in the desired locations. Allow the glue to dry 15 minutes before hanging.

Glue rickrack or lace around the outside edge of the cut denim. Draw or paint on the denim surface to personalize.
