How thrifty! I really don't like spending way more money to get the required outcome. I bet I can come up with an old window at a neighborhood garage sale too. I didn't know you can buy cork by the sheet. That was a new one! Your seashell push pins are just adorable. I can really see adding some anchor embellishment push pins and painting the frame in a navy blue and burgundy color and playing up the nautical theme.

Love the idea of using an old window frame! You can get cork board easily enough, or even use this idea to upscale an old board you already have. Another idea could be to use a padded board covered in fabric as your backing which provides the same use. Add some cross cross ribbon to tick in cards as an alternative to pins. Super project idea!
