Cornhole #2

Our first cornhole set was fun and not too hard. We made it for our wedding following the website: Cornhole How To. It was cool to have a custom set and (to me) even cooler that is was regulation size and everything!

Since we liked ours so much, we decided to collaborate with my younger sister (Jenny) and her bo (Justin) to make a set as a wedding present for my older sister (Mary Beth) and Jake. As you can see from the pictures, we were super precise and didn’t stage an shots to make it look like the workload was shared equally.

What are either of them doing? No, that's not a beer.

It's important to make sure the one board is level.

 

We decided to try and be fancy with a custom paint job to match the cool pattern fabric we bought for the bags. Jake loves plaid and Mary Beth is into flowers and Winnie the Pooh (when she was as a child). This ended up causing a headache since the fabric wasn’t really heavy duty enough for cornhole bags and ultimately ripped after a few games (you definitely need to use duck cloth).

Have you ever tried to paint plaid? Lots of tape went into this.

There it is.

Bees and flower.

This sharpie eventually smeared when we put a cover coat on top.

Until then, however, we were pretty proud of our custom paint jobs and fancy bags, plus we had fun making them. Sadly, we never took a final photo, but maybe someday we’ll snag one.
