Easy DIY Hexagon Cork Boards For Home Office

These easy DIY hexagon cork boards are so simple to make and they add a ton of style to your home office. They would even look cute hanging up in your cubicle at work.

It’s been a while since I talked about my marble and gold home office. Since the reveal, we’ve made a couple changes in the room. Most notably, we moved my ScrapBox out to the dining room area by our home coffee station.

I’ve had a few readers ask about these cute little hexagon cork memo boards and then realized that I never got around to posting the full tutorial. Silly me!

This was just a quick and easy craft project that is perfect for someone looking for how to decorate a house with no money !

We added a little touch of gold craft paint and marble contact paper to make it fit in with the design of our room, but you could leave the hexagon cork boards blank or add a different color!

Supplies for easy hexagon cork boards:

Hexagon printed and cut out of white copy paper placed on top of cork sheet and cutting pad with measurements before cutting cork to make DIY hexagon memo boards

Step 1. Print hexagon shape.

I just used Canva to create a hexagon shape on a piece of paper and then printed it out. After cutting the hexagon out, I used it as my stencil.

Step 2. Trace hexagon shape on cork board.

Next, use your printed hexagon and trace the shape on the cork board. I used a Sharpie and clear acrylic ruler. I was able to get 4 hexagons on my 12” by 18” sheet of cork.

Step 3. Cut hexagons.

Using the clear ruler again and a handy rotary tool, cut out the hexagons on a cutting mat.

This cutting mat and rotary cutter have been coming in handy lately! I’ve used them recently on the wallpaper dresser drawers, leather bookmarks, DIY leather keychain, and this leather sign.

Step 4. Tape off and paint cork boards.

I wanted to do some modern looking color blocking on the hexagon cork boards, because I thought that would fit right in with my marble & gold office.

Using painter’s tape, block off certain areas of the memo boards and start painting with a foam paint brush.

I was a little surprised with how much the cork really soaked up the paint, so I needed to do multiple layers and pretty heavy on the paint. Remove tape when finished.

Step 5. Tape off and paint 2nd color.

Once the 1st color paint is completely dry, add more tape to finish the color blocking in a 2nd color. I needed even more paint with the white color. I probably did about 3-4 coats.

Step 6. Add contact paper.

This part is totally optional, but I think the marble contact paper adds a fun little touch to these easy DIY hexagon cork boards! I had the marble contact paper leftover from making this marble contact paper clock.

Trace the hexagon on the back of the contact paper with a Sharpie and then cut with your clear ruler and rotary tool. The contact paper will just peel and stick right on to the cork.

Note: Unlike the painted cork, the contact paper WILL show holes when you use a tack.

Step 7. Hang hexagon cork boards.

We used Velcro Command strips to hang the cork boards on the wall. Please tell me I’m not the only one completely obsessed with Command Strips? I love how they don’t damage the wall when removed.
