If you like the look of industrial decor, you may enjoy the idea of getting crafty with metal thumbtacks. The designs that you can create with a series of tacks take on a solid metallic look that can be both industrial and rustic.
I found several thumbtack crafts that make great home decor projects and are easy to complete. Here are just a few of my favorites with tutorials that can be found by clicking on the photos:
Turn an old, ordinary globe into a stylish piece of art with the use of ordinary thumbtacks! The result is so striking and chic.
This industrial metal monogram makes a fun craft to make for yourself or to give as a gift. The base is just styro-foam which makes it easy to stick the tacks into.
For something a bit more colorful, you could make filler balls using styro-foam balls, thumbtacks, and paint. This is a great way to fill a bowl or vase with a variety of colored balls with a fun texture. You could also leave some a plain metallic color.
By now you pretty much get the idea that styro-foam plus thumbtacks equals funky new home decor! This wreath is another festive example of that concept using gold thumbtacks.
Pumpkins also make a great base for thumbtacks. You can either make a design or monogram like this one or fill in the entire pumpkin with tacks for a total metal look.
