As any accessories lover knows, once you start collecting enamel pins, it’s nearly impossible to stop. But when your collection outgrows the lapel of your denim jacket, it’s a shame not to find another way to show them off. The good news? There’s always space on the wall – especially for a bright, upcycled display that complements your decor.
This DIY solution is easy to execute and offers endless possibilities for customization: Choose a frame size that fits your collection, and a paint color that suits your style. The best part is that this project couldn’t be easier – you might even already have the materials you need stashed in your craft cabinet.
You will need:
- Picture frame
- Spray paint
- Cork placemats
- Utility knife
- Hot glue gun
Step 1: Remove the frame backing and glass from your frame. Spray paint the frame in a well-ventilated area. Let dry completely.
Step 2: Trace the frame backing onto the cork placemat and use a utility knife to cut along the lines.
Step 3: Hot glue the cork to the cardboard and place the whole thing inside the frame.
Now it’s ready to display your pins!
