Push Pin Tutorial

I was dying to use mini glass tiles for something ever since I saw them while perusing the tile aisling at my local home improvement store. How about push pins? Here is the tutorial:

  • Mini Glass Tiles (available at home improvement stores). They come in packs like these:

  • cheapo plain thumb tacks
  • glue (hot glue will work)
Process (this seems pretty self explanatory, but here goes)

Step 1: Remove the tiles from the backing. They come off pretty cleanly if you rotate from the inside out.

Step 2. Add a dab of glue. For the first set I made, I used tacky glue, but it took forever to dry. If you want more instant gratification, use hot glue. Both seem to be holding up fine.

Step 3. Let dry, et voila!

How pretty! I admire those tiles every time I'm at the home improvement store. Now I know what to do with them. I'll be linking, thanks so much!
