Puppy Love

Who says a bulletin board has to be a big rectangle over your desk? If you or your kid loves dogs (or cats, unicorns, or even dinosaurs), make a corkboard that reflects their style! This girl's room desk sits below an epic cork-and-paint bulldog mural, where projects and paintings can be hung on the practical cork portions of the image. See How It's Done at Vintage Revivals!

Bold color-blocking always draws attention. It's even more stylish when applied to cork. Using basic cork trivets, a clock kit, and some striking colorful hues, you can create these cork statement pieces. To keep your colors from clashing, use only two shades per clock and mix them together to make a third hue. The teal and orange featured on this center clock created a trendy shade of gray! Head over to Brit + Co for a full tutorial.

Striped Beauty

If you're into natural colors and textures, then cork decor is definitely for you. With a bit of creative corkboard painting, this otherwise simple desk area is now a focal feature. A framed corkboard, 1-inch painters tape, and white matte spray paint are all you need for this decorative corkboard to be yours. Infarrantly Creative has the how-to!

Decorating with Neutrals

Geometric Containers

This simple cork project gives you loads of storage and decor options. Cork sheets are thin enough to be cut with scissors but sturdy enough to hold their form when standing upright. With just a few cuts and some lines of hot glue, you can make a container for plants, jewelry, or office supplies. Get crafting with help from Paper & Stitch.

Pretty and Painted

Don't spend a fortune on fancy place mats—make your own! These cork sheets, just like cork trivets you would use for hot pots and pans, retain heat and won't damage the surface underneath. Paint with a pretty heat-resistant metallic for an extra bit of oomph. Snag a full tutorial from Sarah Hearts!

Roll It Out

If you want a stylish corkboard, it's only a few hardware and crafts supplies away! The frame on this office bulletin board was made with plywood and wood glue. A roll of cork—which you can find at your local crafts or hobby store—was laid out and cut into smaller rectangle pieces. Apply the cork strips in a herringbone pattern, then fill in the edges as needed! Little House of Four can show you how it's done.

Colorful corkboard circles add a graphic punch to bare walls and provide a spot to display greeting cards and important reminders. See how to make your own!
