Pinboard DIY.

< Hey! :) I haven't been sharing a DIY project for a while, so here's something you can make yourself if you want to. :) Last Wednesday, Flo and I went to IKEA and I saw those cork coasters and wondered what I could use them for. I bought a few of them and then I decided to turn them into tiny pinboards and cover them with fabric. ;)
You only need a cork coaster, a piece of fabric, a piece of felt, a stapler, a hot-glue gun a (handmade) bow and a ribbon. As you can see, those are all supplies which most of you crafty people have at home anyway. :)
First, put the coaster onto the back side of the fabric, tauten the fabric and use the stapler to fix it onto the coaster. Next, attach a ribbon the same way. Then, disperse the hot glue all over the back side of the coaster and put the felt onto it so that you don't see the staples anymore.
Finally, glue the bow onto the top of the pinboard and that's it! :) You can now pin everything to this little board you want. :) I hung mine next to your kitchen stove, because I wanna use it for pinning recipes onto it while we are cooking. :)

Wish you a lovely weekend, tomorrow I'll be back with another post. <3


  1. Was für eine entzückende Idee! Und die Ausführung finde ich ganz großartig!

  2. oooh pretty! i could definitely use something like this in my room!

  3. oh wow that is so cute! xx

  4. Liebe Lu, danke für die Idee mit dem Filz auf der Rückseite. Ich hab selber gerade eine Pinnwand gemacht und die Rückseite war nicht gerade ansehnlich. Da sie verschenkt werden soll, war das die rettende Idee!
    Und ich denke bei meinem nächsten Ikeabesuch werd ich auch mal einen Untersetzer mit nach Hause nehmen.

  14. This is darling! I love the small size more than the giant ones I've seen. These are simple enough that I could give them as gifts. And I'd like to have one in my mudroom to hang my keys from. I could even switch out the pinboards with the seasons!
