I recently did a revamp of my Inspiration Board. Basically it is a large bulletin board that I have covered with various brightly covered papers that hangs next to my desk. I decided that my push pins needed a bit of a revamp too. Most of the push pins I have are the one with a flat head and I tend to have a hard time pulling them out of the board. So I thought it would be really cool to make something with Creative Paperclay that was 3D and easier to handle.
Hot Glue and Hot Glue Gun
After I finished making my shapes I made an imprint of the head of the push pin on the bottom. This will come in handy later on when you are gluing your push pins to your shapes.
After the shapes are dry you, paint your shapes using Craft Paint to match your board or decor.
Once the paint is dry it is time to glue your push pins into place. Start by squeeze a bit of Hot Glue into the imprints on the bottom of your shapes. Be careful not to squeeze too much glue into your imprints or it will overflow.
Next push your push pins into the glue. I used tweezers to do this, to avoid burning my fingers.
Here are some close ups of my finished push pins.
