DIY Kids Art Station 2

My kids have been on a coloring, drawing, painting, crafting spree. They have crayons, markers, paints, and paper strewn everywhere! They are the cutest little artists but I needed somewhere they could sit and work without it being a complete mess all over my house.

Once they’re done working, they want to hang it up and well, quite frankly, the fridge is full dudes! They each give me 2-3 papers a day that they want hung up. I decided a cork board would be easiest and I could customize it a bit to make it match their playroom. I got these really light weight cork foam boards and decided to dress them up a bit with FrogTape’s Shape Tape.  I tried the “Wave” Shape Tape and it totally matches the curtains that hang in their playroom! So fun!

DIY Cork Board with Shape Tape


1. I gathered all of my supplies and got to work.

2. I got applied the FrogTape Shape Tape where I wanted and rubbed my fingers across it, pressing firmly to make sure it was stuck on really well. I was a little concerned about bleeding since I was painting cork but with it’s PaintBlock® technology, this wasn’t an issue at all. I love that FrogTape® never gives me any issues with bleeding.

3. Using a sponge crafting paint brush, I dabbed on a little green acrylic craft paint a time using an up and down (dabbing) motion instead of dragging the brush in strokes. This also helped to make sure I didn’t have bleeding issues.

4. I did two colors so I repeated Step 3 with some blue “Oops” paint I had on hand.

I hung them up using some mounting tape because they’re so lightweight. I love that it adds some character and color to otherwise boring brown cork boards.

I completed the art station with some cute push pins and moved the boy’s table and chairs from the other side of the room. We just purchased a bright blue futon for them so this was the perfect solution to still be able to use the table and chairs in the room.

I gave the boys a few new art supplies and they couldn’t be happier!! I love this little set up for them to have a dedicated space to craft. I’m pretty sure we all know where their love for crafting and creating came from. 😉

What would you do with FrogTape’s Shape Tape?  Next, time I’m going to use it on something larger scale since I now know how well it works! Hooray! What project are you going to tackle?

    Those are so freakin’ cute! We have some cork pieces hanging in daughter’s room for just such things but now I think I may have to go decorate them a little bit! 🙂 Love the little cars on the wall too!
