DIY Thumb tack wall art

Have some empty walls ??Searching for a budget friendly posters or wall hanging to spice up the wall?? Here is one such idea which you can absolutely DIY all by yourself.Things you need is already in your supply stash or you can get everything in dollar stores for just $4.Here is how the final result looks like.I think it is perfect above my craft table.What do you feel?

If you already have a favourite quote ,then you are all set to get started .Or if you want to select that one favourite from many of the favourites that you have in your pinterest board, then take sometime.
As I belong to the later category,I was just going through the pins and found the below one perfectly suits me.

I added a extra line to suit my craft room.If you want some inspiration,here is the link to my pinterest quotes board ,click here.

Materials Required:
2 black foam board
Gold & silver thumb tack --> one box each
White pencil or crayon
Clear transparent tape

Step 1: Stick the two foam boards using glue or clear transparent tape in the corners.Write the quote on the foam board with white pencil.

Step 2: Start pinning the thumb tack with the white pencil lines as guide.I used silver and gold thumb tacks alternatively just to add some more detail.But , you can use single color.But make sure you have 2 full box of thumb tacks in hand before you start. Voila!!Now you have your own quote wall art to hang in your room!!

To hang it in the wall ,I used sticky back velcro.You can also use mounting tape or use thumb tack as I used to hang this wall art.(Refer Step 4).

  12. Making new items and doing DIYs are two of my favourite things to do. I adore crafting things out of everyday stuff, and recycling old goods into new ones is one of my skills. Art and craft have always piqued my curiosity. This was how I felt about myself in junior high. Now that I'm in high school, I'm considering enrolling in art school for college. This is my ultimate goal, but I must first pass all of my tests. I'll just have to hire one of those Phd Data Collection Writers to write my acceptance letter to college.

  13. You always bring the most intriguing thoughts. I can hardly wait to make this! I've been looking at your blog for a wide range of tasks for my new house; however, this is a DIY that even I can deal with ;) I've attempted to think about a name for our home for a long time and have always been unable to concoct anything. But now that I know, I will make one for my home sweet home.PhD Dissertation Writing Services UK
