I have been trying to use up the corks that I have and decided to make this version of a cork "cork board". It was easy to make and can fit into smaller space than a normal cork board. Plus I think it is more interesting.
Approximate Time: 30 minutes
1 wooden yard stick
hot glue gun
nail or screw
Start by laying out the corks on top of the yard stick. Then move them off to the side of the yard stick in the order you want to adhere them. I did spend time looking for ones that had interesting pictures or neat fonts on them. :) Also consider with you want to change line them all up the same way or change it up and have some go up right and some be on their sides.
Using a hot glue gun, run a line along the cork and press it firmly onto the yard stick. Continue up the yard stick, making sure that the corks are centered on the stick and as straight as possible.
If you want to hang the bulletin stick vertically, then leave space for one or two corks at the top. Mark the spot for your hole with a pencil. I recommend putting your hole in the gap underneath the edge where two corks meet.
Drill a hole in the yard stick big enough for the head of your screw or nail to fit through. Test fit the hole. Note: If the hole needs to be big, I suggest that you first drill a small hole and then use a larger bit to get it the right size. This will help prevent the yard stick from cracking.
