Creative Pin Board!

Every once and awhile, I like to do creative stuff. Problem is, I kind of suck when it comes to artsy fartsy things! My creativity lies more in my words, and even that’s a bit of a stretch sometimes. Sure, I have a degree in Computer Graphics and Design, but I consider myself retired from that field. Anyhow, I saw a YouTube video from Cinnamoniboni. She posts all sorts of fun videos, many of them gaming related! In one video, she painted a corkboard to put all of her little pins on them, and I thought it was such a cute idea! The video is below if you want to check it out.

Now, I don’t have a ton of pins or anything like that, but I have a few that I’ve been wanting to put somewhere- I just never knew how to display them. After watching the video, I thought I would try it out, since it didn’t seem overly complicated!

I started with a standard corkboard that you can find at just about any office supply store. I got mine at Office Max. I forgot to get a picture of it in its unpainted state, but here’s what the wrapper looks like, in case anyone actually gives a shit:

I decided to paint the whole board black. I wanted a dark background with little dots of color! Hey, I said I wasn’t artsy. I can only do simple things!

Originally, I was just going to have yellow dots of color…

But then I decided some silver would look nice…

And some blue…

And finally, some red! Looks like a party!!

After giving the board time to dry, I added a few of my favorite pins to display. I have some Mario pins, Harvest Moon pins, and a Kirby pin too! My favorite pin on the board is the Pokémon Mimikyu, the little pin near the center of the board. I do have other pins, but I didn’t want to clutter up the board too much, so I may just rotate the ones I choose to display.

This was a fun project, and it wasn’t that difficult to do. If it was, I would’ve tossed it and pretended it didn’t happen haha! I like doing creative things like this, so maybe in the future I’ll have more to show! 😉
