DIY- Photo Board

Hey everyone! Looking to share your latest snaps from nature or friends or family? I’ve got just the thing for you! A DIY photo board.

You’ll need:

  • Cork board
  • Design craft paper
  • Photos
  • Paint (I chose black & white)
  • Paint brushes 
  • Glue
  • Thumbtacks 

For my specific look you’ll need to take your cork board and paint the cork part white. Once the white dried, paint all of it black, including the frame and wait for that to dry. Once the paint is completely dry you’ll need to see if you need to cost again, if you do then go ahead and apply another coat. I kinda liked that the white was cracking through so I wasn’t too picky with making sure it was a pure black canvas. Next you’ll take your designed paper which you can find at any craft store such as Joann’s, Michael’s or ACMoore and you’ll go about halfway and glue the paper into the cork board. Finally, thumbtack your favorite photos onto the board and just like that you have a nice and unique photo board! 

Of course you can do this with any color(s) that work for you and your design space. I hope you try this out and let me know how it goes!
