If you’re anything like me and every other Instagram user, you’ve probably felt the pull of pin collecting as there are so many cute ones to buy and amazing collections to envy. If you’re wondering how best to display your enamel pins, here’s some ideas.
Here’s my own little collection! I just used an old box frame, removed the glass and filled it with a couple of layers of corrugated cardboard with felt on top. It was simple and cheap to make with things I already had at home.
Cork boards are another affordable idea – check out this incredible collection by Queenie’s Cards! You can pick up corkboards in craft shops and office supply stores in all different shapes and sizes. Paint the frame or cork to match your room.
Hugs Are Fun made this mini quilted hoop to display her crafty pins but if that’s a bit beyond your skills, just buy a large embroidery hoop and some cute fabric for an easier version.
Not got time for crafts? Biscuit fan Nikki McWilliams has designed this fun pingame banner ready for your favourites. They’re available in a few colours to match your room.
Completely out of cash? Check your wardrobe for a bag or jacket that you love but never use and give it a new life as a pin display. How perfect is this bag by briteandbubbly?
If you want to buy any of the pins shown here, click through to the original Instagram photos as the makers are usually tagged. We’d also love to see your cute pin collections – give us a shout on Instagram at @sckawaii.
