DIY Colour Block Pinboard & Enamel Pin Collection

I’ve always collected something. As a kid I liked hedgehogs so collected anything to do with them. I obviously collected pens too as my stationery obsession started young. Now as an adult, I collect (and sell) enamel pins.

Today’s project is an idea for enamel pin display – a simple DIY Colour Block Pinboard.

Here are the supplies I used:

This project was so simple. I taped off the geometric design I wanted and then painted in a block of pink and a block of grey. Lighter colours will need a few more coats of paint.Colour-Block-Enamel-Pin-Board-Project-Claireabellemakes

I then simply hot glued some word tiles onto the top of the corkboard and finished with washi tape to add some detail to the paint design.

Having my pins on display is great as it’s much easier to decide which ones to wear now. Most of them are from differerent Etsy sellers, but leave me a comment if you are interested in finding out where they came from!

I also subscribe to the Lucky Dip Club who are running a pin project this year in each of their boxes. Of course my bicycle pin is my most treasured!Rose-Gold-Bicycle-Pin-Claireabellemakes

I’ve recently been doing some pin swaps too and I’m so happy to now have a few from Nikki McWilliams Biscuit Pin range!Biscuit-Pins-Nikki-McWilliams

    I made one of these yesterday, but using mint green over pink. Is so much fun! Just awaiting delivery of some Scrabble tiles 🙂
