Yep, that’s right, you can make decor with thumbtacks and it’s so very fun & addicting!
Of course as always I seen the idea on Pinterest from this blog and HAD to try it!
I ran out and grabbed several boxes of thumb tacks (300 count for $1 at the Dollar Store) and a 6 pk of 3″ Styrofoam balls from Hobby Lobby and I got to work!
I started with 3 boxes of silver thinking I’d only need 150 for each ball, instead I needed 300 per ball and had to have a friend get me three more boxes and they only had gold…which really didn’t matter since I’d be spray painting them anyways.
I made a line around the ball with the tacks
Then I started filling in, trying to not leave large spaces
Finished gold one
Gold & Silver, while I do LOVE the silver ones, I’m not so keen on the gold ones…just not a big fan of gold in general
I didn’t have any bamboo skewers so I made my own ‘post’ by shaving down some bamboo chopsticks, worked like a charm!
Spray painted with Valspar Gloss Tropical Oasis & the green below is Valspar Satin Leafy Rise
I decided on 2 of each color
Funny enough they even happen to go with the decor on my Tibetan trunk!
