Thumb Tack Art

More than anything else in the home, I struggle with wall space. I rarely find art work that I like and am always looking for ways to make the walls more interesting.

One day while browsing through Pinterest, I saw a great idea of using thumb tacks on canvases to create personalized art:

I had a pack of small canvases laying around and I picked up a pack of thumb tacks from the dollar store to give it a try..

I roughly measured and drew my letters on to the canvases with pencil and then followed along the pencil lines with thumb tacks.


Not exactly perfect, but super easy. If you accidentally pin wrong, you can simply adjust the tack as the tack head is usually large enough cover your mistake.

One more reason to love Pinterest, and a fun way to add a personal touch to your home.
