How to set-up a corkboard on a wall?How to set-up a corkboard on a wall?Ask MFC

NKAGoroNKAGoro1 month ago
I've seen people display their keychains and pins on corkboards on walls, and I really wanna make one. I'm just terrified of it not being strong enough and falling + possibly damaging things.
How would you all recommend installing a corkboard on a wall with enough strength to hold keychains?

Any help is appreciated! :]

Examples:

Edit: Thank you all for the help! I forgot to mention I can't put any nails or such in the walls since we're renting our house. I'll give the things you all suggested a go, thanks again!

Command Stripes. Just make sure the ones you get are for the proper weight, and follow directions. They work like a charm

What I do is simply rest the pin part on a pushpin. Stick the pushpin into the board a bit, rest your badge on it so the pin part catches on the pushpin, then gently apply pressure to push it more flush against the board.

A more complicated approach is to use small binder clips. Turn the clip inside out (so that it's not clippy), then slide the metal part of the clip thru the pin part of your badge. Then just put it against your board and stick a pushpin in the top of the metal part. This leaves the pushpin visible, so it's nice if you have cute ones.

Thanks for answering my question as I mentioned I have a lot of badges and I don't really have a place for them so I'll give this method a go thanks.

I don't have anything resembling a collection (just a handful of pins), but I don't like the brown backing on normal boards and looked for something different and smaller to display what little I have.

I'd found there are tileable hexagonal felt boards (you can find on Amazon) that stick individually on the wall and you can arrange them how you want. The adhesive on whatever I'd gotten still seems pretty good and it's been up a while. Not sure if you really weighed it down how well it would do, but you could probably use more adhesive strips. I'm thinking it's going to pull the paint off if I ever remove it though.

I use the 16lb Command Strips on my boards, same as Ruuruya, IIRC 8 total arranged like this on the frame:

Ruuruya1 month ago#104110001Oh, the MHA board picture is mine haha.
So what I did was use the 3M Velcro Command strips for picture hanging. The one I used can hold up to 16 lbs, 2 strips on each side and then I put one in the middle as a just in case and for some extra strength. Held up pretty well for me, never fell down.
That was actually on my closet door so I could not screw into it haha.

If you do not mind damaging your walls, just like how the other have suggested, could add screws into the wall, hopfully in a stud, for the most stable set up. Could use drywall anchors as well if no stud can be found.
If you can not add nails/screws into the wall, the command strips are pretty good and have worked out well for me.
multiple medium/small boards instead of one really big one work well too, and the command strips hold those up very well.
Alternatively, instead of a cork board ,could use a magnetic white board. That is what I use currently for my charms instead of a cork board. Just use really small neodymium magnets to hold up all my charms.
My new/current setup, magnetic white board, all held up with the command strips. No damage to wall.
I hope this info helps you.

Hi I noticed in the photo of your board that you have badges also on your board I have a lot of badges and have always wanted to do something like this as well, but how did you put the badges on the corkboard considering you normally pins things but you didn't use pins for the badges so I was wondering how you did it? Sorry if this sounds confusing.

i just use what it came with- the little holders and screws and it's held totally fine even with me taking it on and off multiple times and filling it with a ton of keychains (even heavy ones)

If you're worried about the weight of a big corkboard full of keychains, I'd recommend drilling screws into the wall studs when possible, or using drywall anchors, and hooking the corkboard onto those. That's how mine is attached to the wall (specifically one screw is in a stud, the other uses an anchor because there's too much space between studs); it's about 3ft x 4ft with 400+ badges, keychains, and pins on it, been taken down and put back up several times over the years, and has yet to fall down.

If making holes in the wall isn't an option, you may have to look into doing several smaller corkboards and use heavy-duty 3M hooks; the hooks and strips will note the maximum weight they can handle on the package

putting nails or hooks is enough. i have two boards full of keychains and nails pretty much are stable enough. unless ur keychains are heavy (or if your nails are thin) it shouldn't fall.
