*Holly Create*

So my son loves to tape all of his latest artwork or "whatever's" to the wall and it was becoming a major problem in my very "clutter-free-controlled" life.

Here are just a few examples of the problem...
why, oh, why, is the Costco receipt so cool just because they draw a happy face on it????

This is when I knew I had to come up with a solution...taped to his bookcase...really....
So I bought a cork board at the local thrift shop...$1.99
Used one of my husbands old shirts (only old because he decided to use Gorilla Glue while wearing it...that's what happens when you work with high schoolers...their stupidity rubs off on you after awhile!!)

A little hot glue and a knife to push the unfinished edges into the wood border...Made some push-pins out of some plastic rock-thingys I had leftover from a previous project...

Added a wooden dog so it would match the theme of his room...and it turned out cute...until....
He got a hold of it and made it his own...oh, well at least I'm saving money on tape!!

Oh, and now he wants to paint his room purple or rainbow...should I be worried????
