With your button collection handy, attach them to the length of ribbon. To easily center them, pinch the ribbon in half and slide button pin through. Vary by size, shape, theme or color. Continue until all your buttons and pins are attached. Leave an inch of space at the top and bottom of the ribbon.

Step 2: Step 2: Attach Ribbon to Wall

In addition, I hung a night light from my bottom thumb tack, as I had place the display close to my bedside. I also balanced a small, flat painting on the top thumbtack. This can conceal and camouflage the tacks.
