As anyone with a preschool-aged kid can attest, the artwork piles up. I wanted to display some of my son’s favorites but they kept on falling down after I stuck a rolled-up piece of tape on the back. To solve the problem, I found some cork tiles and doctored them a bit so they’re a step up from your ordinary bulletin board. Here’s how:

• Cork hex tiles
• Painter’s tape
• Acrylic paint
• Foam brush or roller
1. Place a strip of tape down the middle of each hex tile.
2. Paint one side of each cork tile. Cork is absorbent so you might need to do a couple of coats; using a roller will give you a more even finish. Let dry completely before you remove tape.
3. Adhere strong tape squares (like Command brand) to the back of each tile and place on wall.
