Bulletin Board Push Pin Art

Bulletin Board Push Pin Art

Are you tired of that same-old bulletin board hanging up in your office? Want to try something different to spice it up? Well, this is the article for you. All you need is a pack of your favorite style pushpins and some string. Put those two together and you can make something spectacular that will accent your room in a heartbeat. In this post we’ll teach you step by step how to create your very own Bulletin Board Push Pin Art piece.

In our example, we will be putting together a bubble letter “J” for JAM. Don’t feel compelled to copy, pick any letter or symbol you like and let’s get started!

Step 1: Outline

If you chose to do a letter, make sure you mark with a second push-pin how thick you want your letter to be. This will determine how much color you’ll have in your letter. We have pushpins in standard AND round head style!

Step 2: Create Bubble Letter

We chose to make our push-pin “J” thin, since our bulletin board is on the smaller side.

Step 3: Thread String

For a neater look we chose this cross shoe lace style design. If you want yours to be more random, you can start at any point to hook your string.

Step 4: Fill Your Design

Continue to thread your string all the way until your design is full of color. Once you have completed this step, don’t forget to tie your two ends together so it doesn’t come apart!

Step 5: Pat Yourself on the Back

Congrats you’re done! Hang your beautiful design back on your wall if you haven’t done so already and snap a picture! You’re a true artist!

Easier Alternative

Step By Step:

  1. Place the push pins in the shape of your word or name:

    This can be done either in print or in script

  2. Tie string around the first push pin in each letter:

    Make sure to double knot! You don’t want your art work unraveling

  3. Weave the string in and out the pins:

    Pay close attention to wrap the string around every pin. Missing one could make your word lopsided or even come undone!
