Those who know me well know that I am an organised person. I love To-do lists, diaries, notice boards, calendars – basically anything that helps me to plan ahead and to stay focused. I truly admire people live spontaneously, but that’s just not me. So, a few weeks ago I saw some cork notice boards when I was grocery shopping and I was inspired to create my own DIY notice board. But my creative concept was not complete some lovely friends gave me a set of heart shaped chalkboard pegs which I fell in love with. This notice board took me less than 10 minutes to complete, so it’s the perfect DIY project for beginners or if you are short on time; you probably will have most of the items needed already, but if not, I have included some shopping links to help you out. By the way, in case you are not into being organised you can use this noticeboard to display pictures, quotes, or anything else that you desire. So, scroll down for the instructions and I hope you are inspired to keep on creating.

YOU WILL NEED:
- Cork notice board https://amzn.to/3xNHnUm
- Decorative pegs https://amzn.to/3zZblGJ
- Twine https://amzn.to/2UBRVaJ
- Ruler https://amzn.to/35Vir1m
- Glue gun https://amzn.to/3y1aXG5
Step 1: Cut a length of twine slightly longer than the width of your cork board.
Step 2: Wrap the twine around the edges of the cork board and then use a glue gun to attach it to the back of the cork board. Ensure that you pull the twine taught as you secure it, otherwise it will sag once you attach the pegs to it. (Tip: Use a ruler and pencil to first measure and mark where you want your pieces of twine to lay before you secure them with a glue gun; this ensures that the pieces of twine are equally spaced).
Step 3: Attach as many pieces of twine as you want in the same fashion.
Step 4: Attach your pegs to your notice board and you’re all done.
See, I told you it was easy!!
