Overview

This hexagon-shaped cork pinboard adds personal style to any bedroom or home office. It’s an easy D.I.Y. project that combines form and function, giving you a fun place to pin pictures, schedules, mementos or work. Here’s how to make your own in three easy steps.

Steps

1Draw hexagons

Draw hexagon shapes onto each cork tile using a ruler and a pencil. You can choose the size and number of hexagons you want to make up your pinboard.

2Cut out the shapes

With a utility knife, carefully cut out the hexagon shapes. Make sure you’re working on a stable surface and keep your hands and body free from the cutting line as you slowly and firmly pull the knife toward you. Retract the blade when the knife is not in use.

Safety tip: Always wear the appropriate safety equipment (safety glasses and gloves, for example) and follow the equipment’s instructions.

3Attach to your wall

Using adhesive strips, attach the hexagon shapes to your wall in the desired pattern.

Health & Safety

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.

When following our advice in our D.I.Y. videos, make sure you use all equipment, including PPE, safely by following the manufacturer’s instructions. Check that the equipment is suitable for the task and that PPE fits properly. If you are unsure, hire an expert to do the job or talk to a Bunnings Team Member.
