Glass Push Pins

You can find these glass beads pretty much anywhere.  I'm sure you've seen then.  I believe I got mine at the dollar store (which is where this picture is from)  I bought clear but you could buy any color you would like.  I thought they would make great pushpins!

So, I started with beads similar to these only clear...


Found some free clip art Fleur de Lis online and printed them out onto some card stock...



I used a little modge podge to attach the paper fleur de lis to the glass disc.  



I let them dry like this...



and then cut them out so they would look like this.  Then, I just hot glued some push pins to the back and there you have it!  A quick, easy, and very inexpensive push pin that will add a little something special to your message board!


If any of you are interested in using the Fleur de Lis art that I used here it is....

I love these and am excited to create my own. I also cannot get the clip art. I tried to find my own, but encountered a virus attack! Could you possibly email these to me as well? Thanks so much! nhemedia@gmail.com
