DIY Idea: Twig Pushpins

Design*Sponge

Here's an easy DIY project for discarded twigs and branches: turn them into push pins! Such a fun idea. It's practically free, too, and only takes about 30 minutes to make.

Materials:

  • twigs, .25″ – 1″ diameter (at least 10″ long – so you can keep your fingers away from the saw)
  • saw (if you have or know someone who has a chop saw, good. that makes this project awesomely fast. if not, a simple hand saw will do work fine because these are so tiny)
  • hammer
  • small t-pins
  • mall finishing nails (1.5″ long)
  • super glue (the gel is preferable, but any strong glue will work)
  • needle-nose pliers (with a cutting edge)
  • safety goggles and mask (for use during sawing)

Cost:

  • t-pins, nails: $3
  • twigs, tools, etc: free, on hand
