This instructable is kind of two in one.
The first part yields cheap, fun wall art.
The second makes it into a necklace/earring holder.
Some considerations: space, and overall design if you want to hang things from the push pins.
Pushpins (single color or assorted)
Embroidery floss or string
Scratch Paper (to become your pattern) - optional
Thimble - optional
Safe for kids? Small pointy objects require adult supervision.
Cost: approx $5-10
Time required: Less than an hour, depending on the pattern complexity and size
Fun and feelings of accomplishment: Acquired!
Step 1: Make Your Pattern
This design was neat choice because it provided logical places for the pushpins to go. All the bonds made geometric angles which is nice. Rounder shapes will require more pushpins.
Step 2: Pushpin Time
After all this is done, or during, rip off the paper pattern.
Step 3: String It Up
Continue playing connect the dots with the string and pins.
Then anchor the last one in the same manner as the first.
Now you have some super cool wall art!
