Remember a few weeks ago when I showed y'all the jewelry hanger I made out of a cabinet door to hold my necklaces and earrings? Well....I failed to mention that I still had a multitude of pins that needed a new home, too. Now...according to Oprah, pins are no longer fashionable....and to that I say....well....I say I really don't care what Oprah thinks....I love my pins!!!
So....in order to have a place for them that was handy....and to clean out the drawer space that I really needed for my scarves....here's a little tutorial of what I came up with!!!
Took a very old bulletin board that I've had 4-ever....
Took off the ribbons and buttons....and covered it first with a piece of muslin, since the design on it was going to show thru my "decorative" fabric.
Used hot glue to attach the fabric to the board....and have yet another blister to show for it....OUCH!!!
Oh, I'm really liking it already....and here's a close-up of the fabric.
Isn't it pretty?!?!
I hot glued black gross-grain ribbon onto the board....and stapled it in the places where I would glue the buttons that I had covered in a circle of the same fabric....and placed it back into the frame that I had already spray painted black....
And, glued a piece of the same ribbon to the top that I had used on my other jewelry holder.
....but it still lacked something....so I dug thru my ribbon stash....and came up with this....
And....here she is hanging on the side of the old armoire (which I'm in the process of painting blue, by the way)....holding my pins!!
I love how it turned out!!!
Here are a few close-ups of my favorite pins.....
The pink leaves on the bottom left....and the marcasite dragonfly....were both gifts from Jess....and she made me the little pink wooden heart for Valentine's Day one year....:) See the little guitar pin at the very top...my Daddy bought that for me when I was a little girl. It's made out of mother-of-pearl and has actual little strings on it. Little did I know at the time I would have a GRAND-son who is crazy about guitars....so it will probably belong to him one of these days!!!
And....of course....I have a few little owlie pins....
It was super simple to make....just took a little bit of time...about $3 worth of materials....and a very painful hot glue burn!!!
Thursday Blessings to each of you!!!
In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
