So if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you probably know that I have an obsession with enamel pins – specifically Disney ones.
I’ve been collecting these since my very first trip to Disney. I love them because they each hold a memory of a certain place, person, or time. The only thing is, they usually just stay stored in a drawer until the next time I go to Disney.
I wanted to create something that could display my pins in my room all year long and a few weeks ago I can across something. My two favorite sister bloggers – Shelby and Bailey Revis – showed a cork board in their insta stories that had their favorite pins displayed on it. I immediately knew that this is what I wanted and I’ve spent a while trying to find a small but cheap cork board for this DIY. I was walking through Target on Saturday and I found a super cheap and small one for only $3 in the $1-$5 section at the front of the store. It is pretty sturdy and should work really well as a temporary one until I need a bigger one!
The first thing you will need is a cork board to put all of the pins on! This was the $3 one I found at Target! Any size or shape will work.
The next and last thing you will need is all of your pins! I just grabbed my ones I keep in a jar and then the others left on one of my pin lanyards.
The first step is to take all of the backings off of the pins. Some come with one or two, even three, and you need to take all of them off so they can stay on the pin board. I love these backings though – they are Mickey ears! I just put them back in the jar to keep so I have a supply of them for whenever I need them.
This next step is simply placing your pins on the board. I chose to organize mine a certain way because I have a few sets of pins that are part of a bigger collection. For example, my piglet and tigger pins above are part of one and so are the hot air balloons and hats!
I also put these together because these are places I have stayed. Some years I forgot to get pins like when I was little, but these two are ones that I did get. The Port Orleans one is actually from this past June when my mom and I went for my 18th birthday!
Now it is time to admire your work and find a place to put it! Here is what my finished board looks like!
I chose to put my board on my desk where I can see it every day! You could also totally put this on a shelf or on top of a dresser, or even hang it on your wall!
That’s all for this DIY! Check out the rest of my blog and give me a follow if you would like to stay in the know about more posts like DIYs, playlists, food and more!
