Mini-Cornhole Boards

For Goldilocks' 4th birthday, we wanted her to have something unique, something she could use. We made her some mini-cornhole boards!


I didn't take pictures for a tutorial, but since these are "mini" I'll give you some measurements!

Length: 24"
Width: 18"
Hole Diameter: 6"

There are LOTS of good YouTube videos for how to assemble a cornhole board if you need it. But it's pretty straightforward. Make a platform, add some legs to elevate one end, and drill a hole.



I made the actual corn bags a little smaller and lighter than usual. These finish at 4 1/2" square and are made of duck cloth and canvas.


 

I used my Silhouette to cut the vinyl decals for their names and the palmetto trees. A few coats of polyurethane should keep them slick and looking nice for a while. 

 

We had fun with these at her party and many evenings since then. A good, well-made set will last a long time and I know we'll get years of enjoyment out of these.
