Quick Project: Re-purpose old baking tins into cork pin boards

Use old baking tins and lids, some Rust-Oleum spray paint and a roll of cork to give your home office a revamp.


Old baking tins or lids can easily be re-purposed into cork pin boards. Once you have made your cork pin boards, stick some self-adhesive hangers on the back of the tins or lids to mount onto the wall above your desk.


Roll of cork

Self-adhesive picture hangers

Pattex No More Nails adhesive

Rust-Oleum 2X satin canyon black


Cordless screwdriver

Cutting adapter or craft knife and cutting mat

Tape measure and pencil






1. Measure the diameter of the bottom of your baking tins or lids.

2. Transfer the measurement onto your cork sheet and cut out with a Bosch IXO and cutting attachment, or use a craft knife and cutting mat.

3. Spray the baking tins or lids with a couple of coats of Rust-Oleum 2X in satin, canyon black. Only apply light even coats and let the first coat dry thoroughly before applying the second coat.

4. Place a bead of adhesive around the inside base of the tin or lid and press your cut cork circles firmly in place.
