MY DIY | Hexagon Cork Memo Board







I love an inspiration wall, and after finding these thin cork hexagons, I knew I wanted to double them up and add a chain to create a group of hanging memo boards. They are stylish and functional, perfect for tacking up my current to-do list, plus the items that are currently sparking my creativity.  Adding a little paint on each hexagon instantly ups the design factor, and allows you to customize to compliment your space’s color scheme. I arranged the cork board with my favorite photo booth strips (how cute are my parents!) inside Command™ Brand Decor Tile frames,  to create the perfect creative space to brainstorm my next DIY! Step and supplies after the break…


What you need: 
6 hexagon-shaped corkboards of the same size
3 24″ chain strands
Spray paint
Painter’s Tape
Double-Sided Tape Applicator
Quick Dry Adhesive
Command™ Utensil Hooks
Command™ Décor Black Frame Tiles in 5×7
Command™ Décor White Frame Tiles in 5×7
Command™ Décor Chevron Chalkboard Tile
Command™ Décor Riser

What to do: 

Follow all Command™ Brand package instructions for proper surface cleaning and prep, adhesive strip placement and recommended weight claims.

Step 1: To create the first corkboard, use a double-sided tape applicator to apply tape around the perimeter of one piece of corkboard. Place a second piece of corkboard on top of it, and press firmly along the edges so that the two are completely attached. Repeat two more times, making a total of three corkboards.
Step 2: Use quick-dry adhesive to glue one chain to the outer upper edges of one corkboard, leaving approximately 12 inches un-glued and open at the top. This will be what the corkboards hang from. Repeat to add chains to the remaining two corkboards.
Step 3: Tape off a diagonal section on the bottom right-hand corner of the corkboard with a piece painter’s tape. Spray paint the corner of the corkboard. Once dry, remove the tape by pulling the tape slowly and back onto itself at a 45 degree angle.
Step 4: Mount three Command™ Décor Black Frame Tiles 5×7 in a diagonal line above your desk.
Step 5: Hang one Chevron Chalkboard Tile to the left of the tiles placed in Step 4. To create some dimension, add a riser to the back of the White Frame Tile 5×7 base.  Position the riser over the strip close to the right of the Chevron Chalkboard Tile, pressing against the center of the base until you hear it lock into the strip.
Step 6: Adhere three clear Command™ Utensil Hooks in the blank spaces around the décor tiles.  Hang the three corkboards from the hooks to add the final touches on the inspiration wall.
