Locker Corkboard
Designed by Sandy Laipply


Always cover your work surface with a mat or some type of protective covering like wax paper or plastic.

Main supplies:

  • 8” Styrofoam™ disc
  • Elmer’s® Squeeze ‘n Brush® Washable Paint
  • Brushes
  • Sheet of 1/8” thick cork
  • Chenille Stem
  • Wood shapes – triangles and spoons

Basic Supplies:

  • Elmer’s® Glue-All®
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Wax paper
  • Books or other weights



  1. Spread the cork sheet out.  Lay the Styrofoam™ disc on the cork and draw a circle around it with a dark pencil.  Remove the disc and cut the circle out.
  2. Spread a layer of glue over the Styrofoam™ disc.  Place the cork circle on top of the disc and press down all around to remove any air bubbles. Sandwich this between 2 sheets of waxed paper and place books or other weights on top until dry.
  3. Select 12 wood pieces.  Paint as desired with the Squeeze ‘n Brush, being sure to paint the edges.  It may take 2 coats of paint.  Let dry between coats, and before continuing.
  4. Lie your design out around the cork/Styrofoam™ disc.  When pleased with the arrangement, apply glue on each piece and push into the sides of the disc.
  5. Apply glue to the ends of the chenille stem and insert these into the disc to form a hanger.
