MAKE IT – PAINTED THUMB TACKS

Who wants boring white thumb tacks on a fun bulletin board like this? I know I don’t!

Which is why I made painted thumb tacks. Let’s be real, white thumb tacks cost .99 and colored ones in the store cost 3.99.

I simply love this  because I can change the tacks for holidays, special events or to match a room. I always have multiple bulletin boards in different spots in my house and trust me they are filled up. I use them for inspiration and daily reminders of who I am, what I love and things that always make me smile. For example yesterday was the Wifey’s birthday and she got this awesome card that is now on my board. Yep I stole it. It was a shark sitting in a recliner watching him on television. The quote said, ” It’s ME week”. You get it? SHARK WEEK!

Everyone knows I love shark week and Wifey’s birthday.

Like this board? You can get it here.

Lay out your tacks in a well ventilated spot and spray away.  I started with a light coat then added another one when it was dry.

You have to admit this is super cute! I know for me certain colors make me happy which is why I love this tutorial. Everything on the board screams inspiration why not let the tacks do the same.

See you in the next post!

    Hi! These are adorable and your tutorial really helped me with some wall art I am trying to make. I am having some trouble though. I gave the tacks a really thick coat of paint (oops!) and now they are dry. Unfortunately, half of each tack is nice and shiny and half of each tack is matte-looking. Would it help to give them another light coat and maybe they will get all shiny? Or did I ruin them and now I should buy more tacks?

    Thanks for your help!

      Sara! I would totally give them another light coat and they should get shiny. You could also buy a spray gloss finish (in the spray paint section) and add a coat of that once the paint color is completely dry! Hope this helps! Jade!
