Want to see how I made this?

**Pics are down below**
Supplies needed (You don’t need these exact supplies, you can make it your own) I used: Super Glue and Stencils (From the Dollar Tree); Cork and Big Buttons (from Michaels Arts and Crafts); Brown Shoe Polish (from Walmart) and a piece of wooden plank (which I had cut from a pallet from a previous project) A Hammer and Sawtooth Hangers (from Ocean State Job Lot) but you can use any other items that will be used to hang on your wall(as long as its sturdy)
I attached the sawtooth hanger to the back of the board first because once you glue the corks/buttons, it will be hard to hammer the sawtooth hangers to the back.
So using the shoe polish, I stained the wood, and I also stained the corks to match. Then I used the glue to adhere the corks to the board and then the same with the buttons to the corks.(let dry for at least 12-24 hours) *Hint: You can even use door knobs instead of cork and buttons!*
Lastly, I added my stencils, I decided to just use two of the arrows, and to help them stick better on the wood, I brushed a little bit of ModPodge over the stencils (because I noticed the stencils were lifting, but the Modpodge definitely helped.)
And that’s it! Easy peasy… Don’t worry if it isn’t perfect, remember its your own unique piece and the key is to have this therapeutic time for yourself…so go have some fun! P.S. Any questions, just comment below.
