Creative thumb tacks

After a summer of lazy afternoons dedicated to doing nothing, I decided that we needed to get back into our winter routine starting with a massive organization of my mythic craft chest. As we sorted through the materials, my daughter and I found the final products of a series of different craft kits which we had put together over the course of the last year. We were not sure what to do with our mountain of goodies when a light bulb went off: how about CREATIVE THUMB TACKS to organize our new bulletin boards! Google eyes, pom poms, Aquabead creations and more instanteously became adorable additions to our memory bulletin board.

You will need:
Hot glue
Thumb tacks
Bulletin Board
Craft stuff: buttons, google eyes and pom poms all work!

Let’s get started:
Step 1: Sort through your craft drawer and see what fun things you have. The only requirement is that it has a flat back.

Step 2: Add a drop of hot glue to the thumb tack and attach to the flat side. Let dry.

Step 3: Use to decorate your bulletin boards. We bought inexpensive boards and painted the frames with fun acrylic colors.

Have fun!
