What to do with trading pins now that you are home?!

I am so excited to share this with you! After my
most recent trip to Disney this September I came home with a ton of Disney
trading pins.

Now what exactly do you do with these pins?

Everyone in my family
had at least 10 pins that they were not going to trade, and loved dearly. If
anyone has any fabulous ideas of what to do with these please comment.

Here is
what I came up with, and it cost me nothing! I had some canvas around the house
and painted it black. On the back we drew a Mickey head and on the front we
poked all the pins through in the shape we drew on the back.

Now this sounds
easier than it really is, so you should place the pins before poking them
through to avoid as much shuffling as possible so there are not too many
unnecessary holes.

Here is the final product. you can see that this is a great piece of art to hang anywhere in your home.
and it has meaning! that is the best part, you can glance at it and remember the fun you all had trading.
