While I love to cook, there are those days when it’s the last thing on my mind.

Know the feeling?

I come home from work, change into a pair of khaki shorts, a t-shirt and a pair of flip-flops and begin “part two” of my day.

DIY PROJECT :: Making a Set of Cornhole Boards

Cornhole is STILL the Craze

Right after video games, cornhole has become the game of choice for kids (and parents t0o).  We see tons of them every weekend at the lake.  Campers bring along their family, food, their pets, AND their cherished corn hole games.

Making Corn Hole Boards

 A Great FAMILY Project

Making cornhole boards is a great project for you and the kids.  Even the youngest ones can help in some way.  Just BE SAFE!  Keep power tools unplugged when not in use and out of the reach of small children at ALL times.  We want this to be a fun project — not a trip to the ER. :-)

About a year ago, Nate and I made a set of cornhole boards.  You can see one of them in the photo below.  (And as a personal side note:  Wow, doesn’t the backyard lawn look nice and green?!?!)

Okay, on with the story. :-)

Several members of our family are IU (Indiana University) fans.  So…as home-grown Hoosiers, we opted for the old Cream and Crimson design.

Our boards turned out great.  For first-timers, this project went very well — from beginning to end.  Let me just say:  good instructions make ALL the difference.

Let’s get started!

Patriotic Mini-Windsock

Mini Windsock Supplies

As I promised in this post, I am going to show you how I made my Patriotic Mini-Windsock.

With just a few standard supplied, I came up with a red-white-and-blue craft for Memorial Day.

First:  paint a bathroom tissue tube blue.

Cut one strip of construction or scrapbook paper (white) 1″ wide  x 6-1/2 inches long.

Cut one strip of construction or scrapbook paper (red) 1″ wide x 6-1/2 inches long.

Glue each strip around the tube as shown in the photo.  Hold the paper to the tube for a few seconds to be sure it stays where you want it.

 

 

Mini Windsock Step 2

 

Cut red and white strips about 1/2″ wide by 8 inches long.  Glue to the inside of the tube.

Punch two holes near the top of the tube.

Feed the ribbon into the hole and tie a knot in each end.

There!  You’re ready to hang your windsock!
