Happy Friday! The weekend is almost here and to get you started here is a great easy and quick DIY.
I whipped up a couple of mini triangles out of cork. These are cool because they provide a little decor for you desk that is also functional. This project is so easy, just take a look!
All you need:
- a piece of cork tile from the dollar store
- Acrylic paint ( I used Americana from DecoArt)
- An utility knife
- painter’s tape
- Dimensional Design Adhesive paint from E6000 (optional)
First thing you’re gonna do is cut out some triangles out of your corkboard tile. You can make them any size you want.
I used a ruler and a pencil to draw my triangle.
Next, you use your utility knife to cut out your triangle. Make sure you cut on a mat or a surface that you won’t care about wrecking.
I used the ruler to guide the knife to cut a straight line.
Once you have your triangle cut out, use it as a template to cut out three more triangles.
I used this product to glue my triangles together. It’s an adhesive paint from E6000. It’s a gorgeous bronze/copper colour.
I like this because it’s more like a paint and I didn’t want glue showing on the edges of the cork.
If you don’t have this, you could just use a hot glue gun.
Glue the pieces of triangle together to create a pyramid.
My adhesive paint looked like this.
I let it set for a bit and then I used a paint brush to brush the adhesive paint into the cracks for a more streamline look.
The adhesive paint takes about 5 hours to dry.
Once it had dried I used painter’s tape and painted my triangles.
This is where you can get creative and paint your triangles however you like 🙂
Let them dry, remove the tape and then set them on your desk! It’s that easy!
