diy pushpins

Reader Question:
Hello Design Mom, I am a fan of your blog and I’m hoping you could help me out. I have a fabulous cork/chalkboard wall system for my family yet can not seem to find some great and original push pins. Any suggestions? — Jen

Design Mom Answer:
Thanks for the question Jen. How would you feel about making your own? How About Orange featured the coolest tutorial on how to make fabric covered DIY pushpins. They would be perfect for customizing a family corkboard.

If fabric isn’t your style, you could make some DIY pushpins from craft clay, like Sculpey. The clay pins pictured here are styled to look child-like which would be fun for your family room, but imagine them in more sophisticated colors and they would fit well even in a non-kid environment.

Have fun! And please let us know what you come up with.
