With the help of recyclable materials and other items that you have at home, this memo board is a cute way to display your kids’ photos and small mementos while giving their space an added dose of zing.

You will need:

• 6 x cork boards
• Scrap fabric
• Magnetic chalkboard paint (pick the colour of your choice)
• Magnets
• String
• Scissors
• Wrapping paper
• Washi tape
• Craft pegs
• Pencil & ruler
• Cardboard
• Paint
• Glue



1. For this memo board, each tile will have its own unique look. Start by spraying your first corkboard with magnetic chalkboard paint

2. Take your second and third boards and paint them in the colours of your choice

3. For your fourth board, wrap and tie two pieces of string around it

4. Measure a piece of wrapping paper to partly cover your fifth board. Then fold and secure it down with tape at the back of the board

5. For your sixth board, cover it in a fabric of your choice, then secure it with tape at the back. We picked corduroy for this one

6. Once all your boards are done, lay them all face down on their backs. Make sure each board fits snugly together before taping them in place

7. If you want to give your board more support, use a piece of cardboard to cover the entire back of the board then keep it in place with glue or double-sided tape

8. Cut a string the same length of your board and secure it at both ends with tape

9. Cover your craft pegs in washi tape to make them stand out

10. Now it’s time for you to hang the board on the wall! Use a hanging strip to keep it in place

11. Decorate your boards with whatever you fancy. We chose a dinosaur theme for ours
