DIY Pretty & Polished Thumb Tacks

The kids may be heading back to school, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get in on the organizational fun! I live for school supplies, organized work spaces, and tiny items that bring in pops of color. Hello, pretty & “polished” thumb tacks! These babies brighten up any inspiration board and take mere seconds to make! Xo The Proper Pinwheel

MaterialsSilver or gold thumb tacks
Assorted nail polish

instructionsIt’s almost to easy to make these. Simply hold the thumb tack between your thumb and index finger, and paint away. I painted a base layer on each thumb tack and then embellished with gold and glitter polishes. Wait a few minutes for the polish to dry, and then use the tacks to hang all kinds of things!
