Cornhole game boards by Becky Sarkozy, made with Pro Tapes specialty tapes

Cornhole Game Board with Pro Tapes®

Read on to see how artist Becky Sarkozy decorated these cornhole game boards using Pro Splice®, Pro Glow® and Pro Glow Gaff®!

Two unfinished cornhole boards Becky found at a garage sale. She sanded them to down to prepare them for spray painting, but...

I found these used cornhole game boards at a garage sale – they were smaller than usual, which I thought would be great for my kids! But the paint on them was pretty faded, so I sanded them down to a real smooth surface, thinking I would spray paint them after.

 Unfortunately, the past few days here have been rainy, so we’ve been stuck inside and unable to spray paint life back into them. Of course the kids have been impatient and playing with them in the house “as is.” But the bean bags just don’t glide over the recently sanded surface.

I looked around to see what I could do – and as always, Tape is the answer! I found a few rolls of Pro® Splice 50 Tape- which is a SUPER smooth tape. Very thin, light, and even a little bit stretchy. I started layering 2” stripes of Pro® Splice from the top of the boards down to the bottom edge. I folded the edges over and created nice corners– kind of like wrapping a present. Next, I applied White Pro® Splice all around the edges, but I didn’t stop there…

I then added Pro Glow® around the outer edges and Pro Glow Gaff® inside the center cut-out holes. I cut the Pro Glow Gaff® into smaller pieces so I could easily mold them around the cut-outs. In case anyone got confused there: Pro Glow® is a shiny, smooth vinyl tape, whereas Pro Glow Gaff® is matte like regular Pro Gaff®. These are two different products! I used the Pro Glow® vinyl tape on the surface of the board because it is smoother than Gaff, so it allows the bean bags to slide right down the board.

Completely in the dark – ta da!!

NOW with the added Glow, we can play all day, and all night!! Check out the results!! I must say, this tape is so smooth and really does allow for the bean bags to do their thing and glide right over the surface! 

I’m SO impressed with how fast and easy it was to bring these boards back to life without needing to use paint. Not to mention, these tapes gave the boards a very Pro®-fessional new look!! Pro® Splice 50 was a great choice for this project: its smooth, stretchy to pull and wrap over edges, thin enough to be able to layer, and strong enough to hold up on wooden boards!  And Pro Glow® with Pro Glow Gaff® added a really unique somethin-somethin to the final result 🙂
