DIY Disney Pin Board

Since I was 15-years-old I have loved Disney Pin Trading. Disney Pins are a great souvenir to bring home the magic of a Disney vacation. It is a way to talk to Cast Members and interact with other guests while trading. I like to keep my pins safe at-home in satchelsย but I also love to display a few of my favorites. I created this DIY Disney Pin Board as a fun way to share Disney Pins with others. All the magic you need to create it is a canvas, Mason jar rings, a hot glue gun, and some spray paint.

With dry-time, I was able to make this DIY Disney Pin Board in one day. The longest part was letting the paint and hot glue dry. You could say that picking out what pins to display took me some time too. The kids and I had a lot of fun picking out what Disney Trading Pins to display.

To begin creating your own DIY Disney Pin Board you will need:

  • A blank canvas (I used 14×18″)
  • Spray paint in color of choice (I used gold with a bit of sparkle, red and black)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Regular sized Mason jar rings (I used 6)
  • Wide Mouth Mason jar rings (I used 3)

Start by lining up the Mason jar rings to fit how you would like them on your canvas. This will give you an idea of how many lids you might need.

Remove the Mason jar rings and unwrap the canvas. Make sure the canvas is free of any dirt or dust before spraying. Using your base color, cover the entire canvas with a light coating. Do not over saturate the canvas with the spray paint or it will splotch.

Set the canvas in a place where it will not be touched while it dries. Next, spray the Mason jar rings with desired colors. Keep in mind that the regular sized rings will be Mickey’s ears and the Wide Mouth Mason jar rings will be Mickey’s face. For my DIY Disney Pin Board, I used black and red to create Mickey’s ears. I used red for the Wide Mouth Mason jar rings and black for the regular sized Mason jar rings.

You might need to spray a couple of coats to ensure the rings are entirely covered before setting them aside to dry. Ensure that both the canvas and rings are dry before attempting to glue the rings to the canvas.

Once everything dries, place the painted rings onto the canvas for an idea of where to glue them. When a layout is settled upon, use a hot glue gun to carefully adhere the rings to the canvas. Use a thin line of glue around the bottom of each ring and gentlyย press it against the canvas to hold. When all of the rings have adhered, let the project dry entirely before placing Disney Pins on the board.

    This is such a great idea! We have lanyards full of pins that we don’t get to really see and enjoy.

    Thanks for commenting, Elle! I completely understand having wonderful pins but nowhere to display them. I hope this inspires to display your pins.
