Easily make a small rustic bulletin board with a few boards and wine corks. It’s a fast and very satisfying project to make!
Since I finished the Splatoon Halloween costume for my son in late October, I have somewhat neglected my blog and kind of been MIA! The truth is that I have worked hard to prepare my first Christmas market. As you can see, Nelidesign got a little table right there. I can now check this off of my bucket list! Been there, done that! Check!
For the occasion, I made a lot of things and one of them was a small bulletin board with wine corks (you might notice that the theme of my booth turned around wine a lot!) Today I’ll show you how to make them.
Now, I hear you say: “But Natalie, you won’t sell any if you show people how to make them!”
My goal is mainly to encourage people to make “projects for a busy life.” The Christmas market was mostly an excuse for me to meet them and talk to them.
On the other hand, some digital projects I also made for the occasion will soon be sold in Nelidesign’s Boutique. So stay tuned for that! If you don’t want to miss it, sign up! I plan on making a special discount for Nelidesign’s VIP!
Wine cork bulletin board

You will need :
- Wood boards 3/4″ thick (I recycled some pallet wood)
- Kreg Jig (I own the Kreg jig K5 and it’s so easy to use. You can see the post on the bench that I made for my daughter’s bedroom)
- Screw 1-1 / 4″ for Kreg Jig
- DecoArt chalk acrylic (I used the color “primitive”)
- paint brush
- hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
- Screws and metal wire to hang pictures
- and obviously, wine corks!
How to make it
Cut pieces of wood to 3 to 4 inches wide (or use leftovers from other projects!). They don’t even need to be exactly the same width. As mentioned, I used wood from an old pallet.
Then, with the Kreg Jig, I drilled 2 holes per board, except on the last one. If you don’t have this tool, you can screw the boards on a vertical piece of wood to hold them together. You could even use a wood stick you use to mix the paint!
I then attached the metal wire with screws.
I applied a light coat of paint. The idea is to see the flaws of the wood through the paint, so you don’t need to put a lot of paint on the brush. Once everything dry, I glued the wine corks with hot glue.
