Fabric Covered Push Pins

fabric covered push pins  
I love my new Idea Board, but I just wasn’t crazy about my plain push pins.   Digging in the back of my sewing machine drawer, I discovered a  Button Cover Kit.  Just what I needed to add a little color to my board.   So I grabbed some more scraps from my stash,  my plain thumbtacks and got started.

Using the template on the back of the package, I cut small circles of fabric.

I used a pair of pliers to pull off the hook thingy on the back of the buttons.  They were easy to pull off.

Voila!  Instant button covers!

Then I just used a dab of hot glue to attach a plain thumb tack.

  1. I was just looking at those fabric button making things yesterday at Walmart. What a great project. The push pins add such a punch of color to the cork-board. Thanks for sharing! I'm visiting from Tip junkie.
