I have had this huge pinboard for ages, and this week it finally got the makeover I had been envisioning.
This is such an easy update!
It only took 15 minutes. Can anyone tell me why it took me so long to do this?
If you saw yesterday’s post, I promised you the tutorial of this DIY project.
It’s a super easy way update a pinboard. You know me, I like easy solutions that don’t take longer than a few minutes.
You only need 4 supplies:
- large pinboard
- thumb tacks
- glue dots or glue gun and glue sticks
- optional: tops of orange juice cans
The fabric wasn’t quite long enough to cover the whole pin board, but I didn’t mind. I decided to leave one side edge of it uncovered.
I could’ve left it that way, but then I thought of the orange juice can tops that I keep collecting because I just can’t bear to throw them out.
Call me crazy, but I like to recycle and reuse as many things as possible, and they came in handy last year when I made these cute plant markers out of them.
Here they served as magnet holders.
I could have used fabric glue first, but that’s not even necessary if you use enough thumb tacks.
Then I simply used glue dots to stick the juice can tops to the pinboard. I had to use five per can top — if you want to make sure they stick forever, I’d use a glue gun.
And that was it! Here is the pinboard in my office.
I already added all kinds of vintage and thrifty finds to it I have been collecting — take a peek on Instagram — and I love how it turned out!
My office/craft room is finally coming together – I also decluttered it this weekend while my two men were in Washington with family that was visiting from Australia. It has never looked this good since we moved here.
