Thumbtack Crafts

Spread the love

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:

Thumbtack covered globe by Madigan Made.

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.

Thumbtack filler balls by Landee See Landee Do.

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.
