custom corn hole

Image credit: Tec Petaja

I've had several inquiries about custom corn hole games since Leah and Jon's wedding included one that mimicked the invite that I'd created for them.  I didn't make or paint the corn hole set they used, but they sure do have someone crafty and good with a hammer on their side!

Recently, I teamed up with my dad to collaborate on the creation of custom corn hole sets.  The image above is from our first venture.  Our method is this: I create the design that will go on the boards and then my dad makes the boards and paints the design.  Oh!  And I make the bags that go along with the game.  

The tricky part about all of this is transportation.  But if you're interested in working together for something along these lines, email me and we'll work something out!

Oh my goodness, this is an excellent idea!!! I absolutely love it!! We had corn hole at our wedding and I would have totally used you. We just painted them our wedding colors, but our invitation design on it would have been fab! LOVE IT!!

my husband is a mighty fine wood worker and now I think I've found another item to add to his "to-do" list. It's such an easy, fabulous idea. I'm sure your custom boards will be genius. Thanks for sharing. Now I just need to figure out where to get those cute mini bean bags...

This is so cool! I played "bags" (or cornhole) last weekend. Very fun. This would be super-fun at a baby shower or wedding. Great idea! xo.

Love this idea.....What type of wood did you use for the top so it was smooth for the paint? What type of paint did you use?
