I made this notice board for Freddie’s office. However, I went to get some milk from the shop today and by the time I had returned he had put up a shelf exactly where I had intended this to be hung. I was only gone half an hour! Men and their power tools!
The idea for this came from watching “At home with the Braithwaites” I am not sure if it was the first or the second episode. Alison, who won the millions, was standing in the kitchen and there was a large frame hanging on the wall. It took a couple of viewings to see what it was. It was a large frame full of corks.
This is my take on it. I think it would have looked nicer with the corks flush against a nice big chunky frame but this is all I had.
I covered the outer frame with torn pieces of pictures from a magazine. I then covered the paper with paper varnish. The corks are stuck on using a glue gun.
A huge thank you to Toli and Tanya for the endless supply of corks.
Best Wishes Florence.
