Pins and Magnets

Button pushpins

Wanting to use something on my corkboard other than boring push pins, I decided to put my huge jar of buttons to use. I used inexpensive, flat backed tacks with E6000 and glued the pins right to the back of buttons.

I also used some magnets on the backs of buttons for my magnet board.

I had these old key holes from the flea market and thought they would make excellent magnets too.

  2. This is a fantastic idea! I dread buying magnets and push-pins because the cute ones are so ridiculously priced! I will definitely be copying this idea! Thanks so much for the link!
