Today I have a easy, fun project for you. We're heading outside with this one, I am showing you how to make Corn Hole boards. They are not hard to make if you have the right tools!

Start with plain cornhole boards

Corn Hole is an outdoor game that is super easy to play. It's very popular and often seen at parties, it is a great way to pass the time on a nice summer night. Here is an easy way to personalize your own set.

I started with these pre-cut plain wood boards. You can find them on Amazon or even at a sporting goods store. If you want to you can even build them yourself, there are plenty of tutorials to do that online.

Spray top coats

I used my Wagner FLEXiO 3000 Paint Sprayer to give the tops of the Corn Hole boards a few coats of white paint. I used a high-quality Exterior Latex since the boards are mostly used outdoors. I quickly sprayed on two coats of the white with the sprayer. Cornhole board painting isn't a necessity, but can help prevent the boards from premature aging and deterioration.

Let dry and paint sides

Once the top coats were done, I let them dry overnight. I then used painters tape and kraft paper to cover the new white paint and work on the sides. I added some contrasting green paint on the sides again using the paint sprayer. Using the Wagner plastic cup liners makes it easy to switch colors to use the sprayer.

Add custom decals

To finalize this project I ordered custom decals (we selected our family crest from printed from an ETSY seller in 18” size. We centered those on the boards and then covered them with a few coats of clear coated polyurethane for extra protection.
