Ditch boring push pins and upgrade to these colorful helpers that keep your bulletin board organized — and so pretty.

Create a bouquet of different flowers or stick with one kind for a coordinated collection.

Read on for the directions:

What You'll Need:

  • Silk flowers
  • Scissors
  • Push pins
  • Hot glue gun

Directions:

  1. Start by cutting away the flowers from the stems and then removing the center from the silk flower, reserving for later.
  1. Now press the flower over the push pin so the clear top pops out. Use a bit of hot glue to hold the flower in place.
  1. Top with the center that you removed from the silk flower with a dab of hot glue and your flower push pin is finished!
  1. Continue making flower push pins until you have a beautiful bunch and then use on your bulletin board. For a really neat look, make your own fabric-covered bulletin board!
