Favorite Finds: Thumbtacks/Push Pins

Well, you wouldn’t know it by reading my recent confession post on the disastrous state of my home office but I’m pretty much obsessed with all things organization. My office at work is tidy, colorful and sprinkled with little things that I love – to make my 8 hours productive and beautiful. In this space I have a rule (actually I have lots of these) about only using clear thumbtacks. But at home, I think it’s time to get a bit more adventurous and I’ve always loved decorative thumbtacks. I’m on the hunt for the perfect ones but here are some I found that are delightful.

Also, to add to my new thumbtack obsession – I saw an amazing art installation done only with thumbtacks. I did a little googling to find it (Fail Harder image) So creative!



  1. Wow these are very impressive, so creative! I found some neat push pins on Etsy made of vintage gold buttons I thought were pretty cool - a variety of styles and sizes to keep it interesting!

  2. Love the fruity ones :) Thanks for sharing at Beach Cottage Good Life Wednesdays.
