I’ve been collection pins and buttons for years, starting with going to punk shows as a teen and over the years expanding to collecting them from travel, art shows, wherever. Forever they sat in a bowl or tin and I couldn’t really enjoy them.
So I came up with this easy DIY solution to display my collection…
I found a cheap frame at a thrift shop and bought a roll of cork board at the craft store and got to work.
To prep the frame just take out the glass (and use it in a different project if you want), and cut the cork board to fit. Put the cork in the frame and seal with backing if the frame came with some, or use a staple gun or adhesive to keep it in place.
Next you can put all your pins on and hang up on the wall! I arranged my pins by color group and thought it made an interesting visual piece, aside from the already neat patterns and drawings on the pins.
