Tacks


I transformed my plain tacks into something a little more fun. I used some scrap fabric and decorative flat glass rocks (I forget what they are called) to make these. I also made some with cute words. This is a fun and cheap way to jazz up your plain tacks and dress up your cork board!

They can be made for little next to nothing! I bought the tacks and glass rocks from the dollar store. The rocks are usually used to fill vases and other decorative containers. They are in the floral section of the store. I bought the clear ones. 


All you have to do is cut your scrap fabric to the size of the flat side of the rock, add some glue (any kind) and press the fabric to the rock. Then hot glue your tack to the flat side of the fabric covered rock. That's it! You can also print out names or words and do the same. The only thing I had to do different with the printed words, was cover the ink with a piece of clear tape, or else, my ink started to run when I added the glue.
