Holiday Card Display


Inexpensive frame

Rolled cork, and some adhesive

Measuring tools


ScotchBlue Painter's Tape


Step 1: Using spray adhesive, simply glue the cork sheet to the back of the frame insert. Let it

set for a few minutes to make sure it adheres well. Once dry, trim off the excess cork with a

sharp blade.

Step 2: Using a large ruler and some measurements, draw out the shape of the tree wanted. At

this point, you only need the outline of the tree.

Step 3: Using the Scotch Blue tape, tape off the inside of the tree. Once the entire inside of the

tree is covered, paint the remaining outer edges of the cork board with your paint. This required

two coats of paint to really soak into and cover the cork well.

Step 4: The final step is really up to you! Tape off random-sized stripes in some coordinating

colors. I chose a pale coral, white, and the natural cork to show through. To give it a bit of

holiday sparkle, I included some fine lines of gold. The tree trunk is topped off with some polka

dots to add a little whimsy to it!

Step 5: After painting the frame with some white paint, place the cork-covered backing into the

frame and enjoy!
