To get inspired for this school year, I worked with Michaels to
help teachers and parents #Create2Educate with DIY projects and crafts.
Here is my fun back to school project + craft— a DIY back-to-school cork + bulletin board!
Follow my tutorial below to make your own. And while you’re here, find out how you can enter your back to school craft for a chance for a $50 Michaels gift card!
Items needed (all items from Michaels):
Cork board squares
Yard stick / wooden rulers
Wooden 3d alphabet letters
Step 1- Paint your wooden alphabet letters and attach push pins to the back of the letters with a strong glue or hot glue.
Step 2- Cut your ruler / yard stick into 4 pieces (the length of your cork board square) and hot glue onto the edge of the cork board to create a frame / border.
Step 3- attach hooks or a ribbon to the back of the cork board frame for easy hanging!
Now YOU can upload your back-to-school #Create2Educate craft project for a chance to win a $50 Michaels gift card! Details below…
