Pin Display

Now that we are back with loads of pins, where can we get a nice wall mount display case for them?

Thanks for the help!

Irie!

I've moved this thread to the Collectors board. There have been many great ideas for displaying pins posted here.

You can get a shadow box at a craft store to display your pins. A lot of people use frames as well but you want to make sure the pins don't get scratched.

We just use cork boards, stick the pin in and you're done. lol You can cover the cork with fabric if you wanted to fancy it up some.

Make sure whatever you use has some sort of thick backing if your going to push the pins through or the backs could scratch up you walls. Cork works great!

I recently purchased 3 fairly large shadow boxes, from Michaels, to hold most of my pins. I hung the boxes so they can be seen by my guests when they come into my home.

Irie!

We buy the cases from AC Moore or Michaels, for around $22 with the coupons......We currently have, drum roll, 14 cases hanging on our walls...They make different sizes, the smaller case has the 2nd series piece of history set in it....They really work great!

Plus with our Swavorsky, Precious Moments and other figures, we are starting to wonder if we should charge $5 admission to our Disney Northeast!!

I just use the pin books from the parks to display my pins. I just pull them out when I feel like looking at them.

To place the pins I made a base of styrofoam and sheet of cork covered with a piece of black velvet. The frames is opened as a door to be able to place or to change the pins.
