Corkboard organiser with photos pinned to it.


This hexagon-shaped cork pinboard adds personal style to any bedroom or home office. It’s an easy D.I.Y. project that combines form and function, giving you a fun place to pin pictures, schedules, mementos or work. Here’s how to make your own in three easy steps.


1Draw hexagons

Draw hexagon shapes onto each cork tile using a ruler and a pencil. You can choose the size and number of hexagons you want to make up your pinboard.

2Cut out the shapes

With a utility knife, carefully cut out the hexagon shapes. Make sure you’re working on a stable surface and keep your hands and body free from the cutting line as you slowly and firmly pull the knife toward you. Retract the blade when the knife is not in use.

Safety tip: Always wear the appropriate safety equipment (safety glasses and gloves, for example) and follow the equipment’s instructions.

3Attach to your wall

Using adhesive strips, attach the hexagon shapes to your wall in the desired pattern.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
