    How to make cork organisers

    You will need:

    • Sheet of cork
    • Cutting mat
    • Craft knife
    • Pen
    • Ruler
    • Paper
    • Scissors
    • Rust-Oleum painter’s touch spray paint
    • Newspaper

    How to make cork organisers:

    1. Draw a hexagon shape on a piece of paper or print one out. Cut out the templates and transfer the outline onto the reverse of the cork sheet with the pen and ruler.

    2. Using the craft knife, cut out as many hexagon shapes as you like from the sheet of cork.

    3. Position the cutout cork shapes on a surface protected by newspaper and in a well-ventilated space. Following the manufacturer’s instructions, spray a coat of paint on the surface of the cork.

    4. Repeat the coats of spray paint until no cork can be seen beneath and there’s an even coverage. Allow to dry completely before use.
