Happy Friday! The weekend is almost here and to get you started here is a great easy and quick DIY.

I whipped up a couple of mini triangles out of cork. These are cool because they provide a little decor for you desk that is also functional. This project is so easy, just take a look!

All you need: 

  • a piece of cork tile from the dollar store
  • Acrylic paint ( I used Americana from DecoArt)
  • An utility knife
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • painter’s tape
  • Dimensional Design Adhesive paint from E6000 (optional)

First thing you’re gonna do is cut out some triangles out of your corkboard tile. You can make them any size you want.

I used a ruler and a pencil to draw my triangle.

Next, you use your utility knife to cut out your triangle. Make sure you cut on a mat or a surface that you won’t care about wrecking.

I used the ruler to guide the knife to cut a straight line.

Once you have your triangle cut out, use it as a template to cut out three more triangles.

I used this product to glue my triangles together. It’s an adhesive paint from E6000. It’s a gorgeous bronze/copper colour.

I like this because it’s more like a paint and I didn’t want glue showing on the edges of the cork.

If you don’t have this, you could just use a hot glue gun.

Glue the pieces of triangle together to create a pyramid.

My adhesive paint looked like this.

I let it set for a bit and then I used a paint brush to brush the adhesive paint into the cracks for a more streamline look.

The adhesive paint takes about 5 hours to dry.

Once it had dried I used painter’s tape and painted my triangles.

This is where you can get creative and paint your triangles however you like 🙂

Let them dry, remove the tape and then set them on your desk! It’s that easy!
