Children's Crafts - Pin Art

All projects are FREE, however, donations towards the upkeep of Walkabout Crafts are much appreciated. Please click below to make a donation.

Children's Crafts - Pin Art from www.walkaboutcrafts.comYou will need:
Cork tile or thick cardboard
Felt or a piece of material to cover the tile or cardboard
Map or glass headed pins
String or wool

1. Dab spots of glue all over one side of the cork tile or cardboard. Place the felt over the top and press down firmly making sure there are no bumps.

2. Turn the tile over and fold over the loose edges of the material. Pull up tight and glue in place. This gives the board a neat finish.

3. Push the pins into the board in the shape of a circle or square – make sure the pins are the same distance apart. You can use a plate or bowl as a guide when making a circle, and a box for a square.

4. Tie the end of the string or wool to a pin. Wind it around the pins as you fancy – you don’t have to crisscross from one pin to another, as here.

5. To finish, neatly tie the wool or string to the last pin you intend to use and cut off the end close to the pin.
