I am not a Disney pin collector! Let's just start this off by saying that. So obviously that means I'm no expert on how people store or display (or whatever) their collections. The pins I do have are special ones that I traditionally buy as mementos of each Disney trip or special events and will never, ever be put on a lanyard and traded :O!
As they are special to me, I wanted to create a better way to show them off in my house and ended up coming up with the simplest thing ever - the super inventive pin board!Here is a quick and easy step by step in case you fancy doing something similar.
You will need:
Picture frame of your choice
Scissors / Craft knife
Pen / Pencil
And your pins!
1 // Remove the frame from the board. Uhhh, I know, the hardest of steps!
2 // Hold on to your hats this one is even crazier - remove the glass from the photo frame :O
3 // Take the glass and use a pen/pencil to trace it onto the corkboard.
4 // Beware! Use of sharp objects!! Cut around the lines you just drew.
5 // This is literally the most difficult part. I'm being serious. Push the rectangle of corkboard you just cut, into the photo frame omitting the glass (pop that into the glass recycling or something).
6 // Fix the frame backing back on and secure with tape. I suggest the tape as obviously the corkboard is thicker than the original glass and this will help keep the back tight.
Quick and easy wasn't an understatement eh? haha I'm pretty happy with it and it cost under £4.50 for the supplies, with enough left over to be able to make another two boards! That's like £1.50 for this one pin display - bargain.
Let me know what you think and if you have special pins how you display yours. :)
