DIY Cornhole Game




Pin It





FINALLY...There's a manly post on this girly blog of mine!!

First let me gush for a sec about my hubby. (Here he is on our wedding day.)

He is the smartest, most hardworking. thoughtful, and best dad/husband a girl could ever hope for. I lucked out for sure. And these beautiful big blue eyes my kids have..they're from him.

Wanna know something cool? We met on eharmony.com almost 7 years ago. ( He hates when I tell people this... ha ha) This was his exact profile picture. I'm the one who initiated the contact. lol I remember that clearly. Oh and he's the first and only person I ever met from there. So I always say yep I paid $50 to meet my hubby! :)


My guy happens to work in the construction industry, has power tools, is very handy and a great DIY-er. He recently made us a cornhole game for the backyard. I had never heard of that game until I met him. I think it's a midwest thing. He's from Indiana and a proud Purdue Alum....hence the black and gold.




Cornhole is very much like horseshoes. It's usually played tournament style with beanbags, and anyone can play it so it really does make a great family game. He followed these instructions from ehow.com. It was about $50 in wood. There's also a ton of info about rules on the American Cornhole Association (ACA) website.




I think these would make great wedding gift (for the right couple) with a cool monogram..Do you play cornhole or something similar?

We totally do! My husband introduced me to the game as well. A friend made us the set for our wedding present, and I just recently painted them! You can see them here http://breezypinkdaisies.blogspot.com/2012/02/bears-bean-bag-boards-painting-designs.html !

The front of the platform stands 2-1/2 to 4 inches tall and the back of the platform sits 12 inches off the ground. http://customcorntoss.com/cornhole-boards
