DIY Citrus Fruit Pushpins

In the summer we plan to take our Friday nights with a lick of salt, a slice of lime and a shot of tequila. The thought makes our lips pucker with excitement.

So, why not take our cork boards with a hint of color, a slice of lime and a cute photo?

Our classic black and white pushpins recently got a makeover into DIY lemon and lime pushpins. The mini slices add cheer to our workspace, and keep us dreaming of our favorite Rio Grande margaritas.

Materials Needed:

  • Mini Cork Door Discs {with adhesive backing} from Home Depot. You can also use flat white pushpins {non-cork}. 
  • Acrylic paint {white, lime green, yellow}
  • Pushpins
  • Pencil
  • Sealer, such as Shellac

Directions:

  • Paint the mini cork discs white.
  • When the white paint dries, use a pencil to freehand mini triangles in a circle around the center of the disc.
  • Paint the outer ring green/yellow, then paint the triangles green/yellow.
  • Once the paint dries, spray paint with a sealer, like Shellac.
  • Stick to the pushpins. The adhesive on the back should be sufficient, but if not, a hot glue gun with work.
