DIY: This Awesome Disney Pin Display Is the Perfect Weekend Project
Since we know that (like us) you’ll be home all weekend, we (with a little help from our friends at Disney) have a fun DIY project for anyone that has done pin trading/collecting at the theme parks.
You’ll love this quick and easy DIY pin display which makes the perfect way to celebrate your awesome vacation memories. Let’s start with a look at what you’ll need (below).
Step 1: In the spirit of nostalgia (and simplicity), we’re decorating our board with a Walt Disney Pictures’ older logo. Download Disney’s stencil here, then cut the shaded shapes out of a printed copy with an X-acto knife.
Step 2: Dip a sponge brush into white paint (or any color of your choosing) and—holding your stencil firmly in place—press the sponge over your stencil repeatedly, filling all the blank spaces.
Step 3: Peel away your stencil to reveal the castle shape. Set aside this cork tile and let it dry.
Step 4: Take your second cork tile and glue the knotted ends of a length of string onto the top corners (as pictured below). Add a staple or two if you’re worried about the strength of your craft glue.
Step 5: Spread glue across the back of your first tile and glue it to your second, sandwiching the string between the two tiles. Use binder clips or clamps to hold the two tiles together as they dry.
Step 6: Once the tiles dry, add further decorations as you please. We painted a border around our cork board and added a bow (as pictured below), but you can feel free to leave it as is.
Optional: Wondering what to do with all your pins’ Mickey-shaped rubber backings? Use glue, staples or push-pins to adhere a plastic baggie to the back of your cork board and stow them away for safe keeping.
Finally, all you need to do is creatively display your pins for all to see! Readers are encouraged to keep following along with MickeyBlog for the latest Disney-related news and updates.
