One of my favorite blogs is Design Sponge. When I stumbled upon these beautiful gemstone pushpins courtesy of Mandy Pellegrin of Fabric Paper Glue, I knew I had to make them for myself. I made some adaptations to the craft, but the result is still so simple and chic.
What you need:
— Plastic rhinestones. You can buy these for super cheap at the craft store.
— Nail polish in several colors. I find that inexpensive nail polish works better for crafts like this one because it’s thicker and dries faster.
— Flat thumb tacks
— Craft glue or hot glue
Just paint, glue, and go.
I made these in neutral colors, but you could use any polish you want to match your decor. Paired with a cork bulletin board, these would make a great gift.
Have you made any fun crafts lately?
