You would be hard-pressed to find a family reunion or outdoor summer party that doesn't involve a game of cornhole. With this Easy DIY Cornhole Board Tutorial, you can make your own cornhole set to enjoy in the summer months. This is such a fun and easy backyard game that any age group can enjoy. Pull them out to the yard while you barbecue, take them to a park for a fun gathering, or bring them as entertainment while you wait for the movie to start at the drive in. This DIY bags game will be a family tradition in no time.
From the blogger: "Cornhole is a simple game that is a TON of fun. Unfortunately, the boards are SO expensive. Fortunately, this tutorial will teach you how to make one for a fraction of the price!"

I love playing cornhole! My husband has a set from college, but it's pretty beat up, so maybe I'll convince him to make a new one with this tutorial!

When we go over to one of my sons house for a barbaque they play cornhole. I have never heard of it before that. It is a great game for the whole family or friends and it would be a great idea to have more sets for all my kids. I will have to get some of these made as the boards are quite pricy. I will use soe leftover fabric for the bags. This is a great tutorial to know what the exact measurements need to be. I love that you can paint and decorate the board as you like. Very well put together totorial.

My family loves to play corn hole. I have been looking for a tutorial. Thanks so much for posting! I can see us making a set of these for a couple of family members that love to play the game too. We always go to a family reunion in August and someone breaks out a set of boards and off we go to playing.

I've never heard this called corn hole before! Where I'm from, we call it bags. Great game though, this is an awesome tutorial!
