Inspire, make, dream, love

My cork board series is done. Or should I say one of my cork board series is done. I have a few more in the works but for now my series - inspire, make, dream, love - is good to go!

This is an easy update if you have some cork boards you want to jazz up. The only part that is at all time consuming is creating the stencil. I used free vinyl and cut out the text with an X-Acto knife then added the vinyl cut out to the cork.

Next step was to take a sponge and some white acrylic paint then go over the stencil with the sponge...

After that you wait for the paint to dry then remove the vinyl...

Once the paint had dried, I added the screw eyes to the back...

And then added the wire...

Here's the 'inspire' cork board finished and hung on the wall.

The four updated cork boards cost me about $3 - the whole board cost $5.99 and I still have a couple of other pieces left from it! Happy stenciling/updating/re-loving... :-)
