A few months ago I made a pretty cool DIY bulletin board. Other than staging it to take some pictures for the blog, however, I really haven’t used it much. As I shared on Monday, I’m starting some new habits. And as cheesy as it may sound, one of them is starting a vision board. (This post is not about starting a vision board, but once I actually do that, I’ll share another post here telling you how I went about it.)
But, before I can create a proper vision board, I needed some really cute thumb tacks. I know I’m not the first person to glue a button to a thumb tack, but good ideas need to be documented, right?
So today I thought I’d share this quick, fun, and colorful tutorial for DIY Button Thumb Tacks.
DIY Button Thumb Tacks
You will need:
Buttons (I found a pack of vintage ones at Goodwill)
Thumb tacks (These are from the hardware department at Walmart.)
Now, I’m warning you. Things are about to get complicated. (Totally kidding, this couldn’t get any easier.)
Set all of your buttons face down on a flat surface.
Add a little glue to your thumb tack.
Then place it on the back of your thumb tack and allow it to dry for a few hours.
Ta-da! Adorable DIY Button Thumb Tacks. I told you this was going to be easy.
In a matter of minutes, I had dozens made and now I’m ready to attack my vision board with vengeance. Because that’s the only proper way to attack a vision board, right?
Hope you all are having a fabulous Thursday!
I’m thinking about trying out a few shorter posts like this on IBC every now and again. More meat, fewer words and pictures. Actual content aside, what do you think? Do you like the longer posts or prefer something short and to the point? If you could take a quick moment in the comments and let me know what you like best, it would be immensely appreciated!
