make your own thumb tacks

I love my bulletin board, but I absolutely hated the weird neon thumbtacks I was using to pin everything up on it… it was time for a thumbtack makeover! A few buttons (I already had a hodgepodge collection) a little glue gun (every crafter has one of those) a few minutes later and we were in business… classy tacking!


You just need some buttons that are bigger than the circumference of your tacks (preferably in coordinating colors), glue and tacks.
