Make This: Cloud Cork Board for Back to School

DIY // cork board cloud project

Back to school is right around the corner, and although I don’t have kids of my own, it’s still on my mind.

So, I have a DIY for you that is back to school themed: a cute little cloud cork board to keep organized this school year. Bonus! If you don’t have kids, you can totally still make one of these…It’s perfect for a home office or in the entryway as a landing pad area for pinning up love notes, bills, etc. Hey, I managed to get the words love notes and bills in the same sentence – I think I deserve a small cookie or something.


DIY // cloud cork board


As you can probably guess, it’s pretty easy to make, but the step by instructions are right here if you need ’em. I would love to make a giant one of these for my (maybe one day) studio, to post to-dos and inspiration. We’ll see.

So, what do you think? Would you make one of these for yourself or is it better reserved for the kiddos?

Love the idea!!! Definitely doing one for myself!! I just don’t get how you hang it on the wall… No pins, no wires??

Hi Rita. You can use Command Strips or sticky foam to attach the cork board to the wall. Works really well!
