Fun Thumbtacks

IMAG0032

When I inherited a collection of costume jewelry, I found that there were a number of earrings that were missing their mates.  I hated to just dispose of them.  With a little bit of thought, I realized I could use them as thumbtacks on bulletin boards so that I could continue to enjoy them.  What a great way to add a bit of elegance, fun, and whimsy to any bulletin board.

To add more of a crafting element, this idea would work well with any number of small trinkets.  We all have those little things that we really don’t know what to do with and yet we don’t want to part with them.  Simply hot glue or super glue them onto the head of a plain thumbtack.  Instead of them being tucked away in a box somewhere, now they can be displayed and enjoyed!
