Step 1: Sketch and Cut Your Shape

Step 2: Tape and Paint

Using masking tape, section of your diamond pieces and paint them with acrylic paint. The pin board does soak up a bit of paint so if you're mixing a colour be sure to make lots.

You will need to wait for each section to dry before moving onto the other colours, or if you're impatient like me you can paint up to the line carefully with a flat paintbrush

Step 3: Outline With a Sharpie

When all your sections are dry, outline the design with a sharpie and a ruler. 

Step 4: Hang

Hang your finished pin board by gluing a loop of ribbon to the back, or try 3M velcro strips to attach to your wall
