DIY Corn Hole Boards

Another project we did this summer was to build three sets or six corn hole boards.  Rob wanted two sets, so people could play simultaneously, as we often entertain large groups.  The third set was for a rental property for guests to enjoy.
Rob found the directions here.  And of course, his sidekick couldn't be any happier.  All you have to say is the word, "build," and he is ready with boots and a hammer.
Because he built so many, this took the good part of a day!  With a gravel driveway, this small square of cement is the only flat spot to build, and is right at my front door.
My job was to sew a million, or so it seemed, of these bags with corn perfectly measured out and weighed.  After the first few tosses and with corn going everywhere, we decided to take them to a friend to sew!
If you haven't played corn hole, it is a super fun game.  The kids love it and it seems to help with hand and eye coordination.  We played for hours with our family, and with so many of us, we were glad we had two games going at once!  Here are the rules.

For my TPL friend in Pickens who inquired about the decal:
 Rob took the state signature 'Palmetto and Moon' to a friend who runs Double "B" Graphix here in our town.  She was able to enlarge and make into a decal.  If you would like this, click on the site and give her a call.  She has made a few for my sister, too!    Rob and Mason painted the boards with some leftover paint; added the decal and sealed the entire board.
Here are some of my favorites found on Pinterest (here!)
Being crafty enough not only to paint the corn hole boards but to make them too. TSM.


How cute for a wedding or anniversary!
