So when it came time for searching out the perfect Christmas gift for our families, my mother in law suggested a corn hole game. Have you SEEN the prices on these suckers?! An unfinished one can run you upwards of $150 or more on Ebay. Yeah, I don't think so. I decided to scour Pinterest and see if I could find a DIY tutorial. And what do you know? I did! After sucking up to the hubby so that he would actually assemble the thing, and gathering up my supplies of paint and vinyl letters (Shout out to Michelle @ Signs Now, a very good friend of mine!), we set to work.
The original tutorial can be found at http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/cda/howto_print/0,1000871,DIY_33166_40181_HOWTO-PRINT-DETAIL,00.html. All together, this project cost us $32 for lumber and hardware, $5.82 for paint, and a whopping $0 for vinyl (did I mention that I LOVE my friend Michelle?!), and took about 4 hours total time. I also sewed the bean bags myself....um, not the prettiest thing I've ever seen, since it was my first "on my own" sewing project, but hey, they'll work! I must say, I am impressed with us! lol It turned out much better than I expected and we are kinda thinking we might want to make one for ourselves now! Whatdya think?
