Creative Asterisk Cork board

With school in session for some and coming soon for the rest, I’ve been on a big back-to-school kick!  Plus, I just love walking the school supply aisles.  A few weeks ago, I was at Target and found a package of hexagon cork board and I swear it jump right into my cart.  Today I am sharing how that hexagon cork board transformed into my Creative Asterisk Cork Board.

Using the ruler, mark your cut lines at each point of the *hexagon.  Then, very carefully (please watch those fingers!) follow your lines with an x.acto knife.

Then, apply two coats of your favorite colored acrylic paint.  I choose to do a bright pink on the sides and a aqua on the top.

I love the cheerful contrast of color.  And it would look lovely on your wall even without notes and pictures pinned to it.

Creative Asterisk Cork Board,

I only made one of these, but how fun would a few different colors and sizes be all grouped together on a wall?  I think I have a fun weekend DIY coming up!

And I made THIS awesome cork board project from the cutout pieces of this project!  Head over to check it out.
