DIY: Push Pin Artwork

Good Morning! I hope you all had an awesome 4th of July weekend. Today I have a simple, but fun, DIY project for you guys. I saw this on pinterest and wanted to give it a try.
Basically, it is taking a foam board and putting push pins into it, in the form of letters, or you could even do a fun design. I decided to spell out LOVE.

Here are the supplies that you'll need:
I used the spray paint to add color to the push pins (I could only find them in gold). I actually ended up spray painting half of them white and half of them a light turquoise color. 
1. Using the paper from your frame trace onto the black foam board and cut to size.
2. Using a pencil LIGHTLY trace your design or word on the the board.
3. Carefully push your pins onto your board spacing them out evenly.

That all, pretty easy huh? 
This is just my first attempt, I made a few tweaks and changes before I put it in the frame...
OH, I almost forgot. I actually did one more step. After I finished with the push pins, I cut out little hearts from scrapbook paper and glued them onto the board. I think it added a little something extra, yeah? Here is my finished picture. 
I'm not the most creative, but you really could do SO many different things with this project. If you decide to try it, let us know. I would love to see what you come up with! Have a great rest of your day, and thanks for stopping by!

P.S--Be sure to check out the lovely parties we link to HERE!
