Bookish DIY: Pin Board

If you’ve found your way to this post, you’re likely an enamel pin collector. When you first start collecting, it’s tricky to figure out what to do with them. You have a few and you need to do something with the pins. You’re not quite ready to made the jump to paying for a pin board or pin banner. What do you do?

Good news! You can make your own pin board for pretty cheap.

Jump below for the how-to.

My pin board that I made in 3 minutes.


  • Embroidery Hoop [$1.49-2.49 at Hobby Lobby]
  • Fabric [Upcycle old shirts or scarves or buy fabric squares at the craft store]


  • Unscrew embroidery hoop until the 2 pieces come apart.
  • Stretch fabric over smaller hoop.
  • Put hoop back together. Tighten until secure
  • I trimmed my excess fabric from the back and the side.

Is it fancy? No. Is it elegant? Not really. Is it easy? YEP.

Reasons I Appreciate This Type of Pin Board:

  • You can make and remake it to your liking.
    • Have fabrics for every month or every season? You can change it out!
  • Cheap and easy gift for your pin loving friends.
  • Bookstagram people! You can easily make multiple boards for different types of photos.
    • Make one for all your Harry Potter [or insert another fandom here] pins. Make a board for all pins from a company.
  • It’s an inexpensive way to
    • Store your pins AND see if you want to spend $$ on a nicer board.
  • It’s a great way to use up fabrics you’re not using.
    • Book boxes can send items that aren’t useful for everyone.
      • Tea towel
      • Scarves
      • Pillow cases

Happy Crafting
