♥ Summer Pin-board ♥

Hello Everyone,

If you've seen my videos, you may have noticed a large pin-board behind me.  My pin-board is one of my favourite things in my room. You can use it too keep photos and memories, notes and reminders, or a collage. You can put whatever you like on there. I like to create a collage. It changes a few times throughout the year, so it fits with the season. At the moment there is a Summer theme, pictures of beaches and cities in the summertime. I like my pin-board to make me feel inspired, motivated and happy. There's uplifting quotes, places I dream of visiting, people I love & inspire me, and photos and concert tickets to remind of amazing times I've had, which help me look forward to many more. This is how I personalized my pin-board...

Obviously, you will need a pin-board! The one I have is quite big, but you can use whatever size suits you. You will also need some push pins, these pins have a translucent effect, which make them look quite pretty in opinion!

Next I went to the computer and printed lots of pictures like quotes, places etc and kept aside photographs and concert tickets which were on my pin-board previously. As I said earlier, you can put whatever you like on your pin-board, and this is what I like to do!

The next step is to cut out the pictures, my pictures are a mix of different sizes. Now the fun part, deciding where you want the pictures! Take the time you need to arrange the pictures, overlapping or spaced out, or having them at different angles.Once you're finished you just need to hang the pin-board in your bedroom or wherever you want to. I used green garden wire and hooks on the sides of the board to hang it up.

And then you're finished Take a look at mine..

I'm very happy with the result. I think it looks so pretty and fits in my room very well. It will stay like this for the next few months, until the Autumn comes and the theme will change again. But for now, we'll enjoy the Summer!

How do you like to personalise your room? Do you have a pin-board?

  5. I love this idea! I have two similar noticeboards I made with little pegs where I clip things that inspire me but I rarely change them around. I love the idea of it being a more seasonal thing.
