Step 1: Things You Will Need
1. Corksheet. I got mine by rippping it off its board.
2. Wood glue
3. Saw - manual or electric
4. Branches - thickness is really up to you. mine's about 2 inches or more thick
5. Scissors, cutters, pens. cutting mat. Basic cutting stuff.
Step 2: Cut the Branches
Using your saw, cut your branches. I choose those who have a unique shape, not just round. It really up to you how thick you would like them to be. You can make all the same thickness. I did mine in different thicknesses so that it can have a 3D look. Mark them with numbers or letters. Why? I'll explain shortly.
Step 3: Tracing the Corksheet
Get your corksheet. The side youre looking at is the backside (the one stuck on the board) Mine's pretty easy to take off the board.
Trace you branch 'chips' on the cork. Because each has a unique shape, it will save you a lot of time by marking the traced shape on the cork with the number you marked on your chips.
Step 4: Cut the Cork
Step 5: Glue to Your Wood Chips
Step 6: Play With the Design/shape
Feel free to arrange it any way you like.
Step 7: Glue It on Your Board.
I used a piece of thin plywood that's just lying around. Glue the wood branches on the plywood.
Step 8: Cut the Board Into Desired Shape.
I used a jigsaw on this one cutting from the other side
Step 9: Mount on You Wall.
I used double sided foam tape for this one. This is a bit heavy so make sure you are using enough tape. You can also hang this by using hooks. There you have it.
