We have finally been setting up our office space and I came across all our Disney pins. I decided to make some pin boards to add some more art to the office, and actually display our pins.
When I started thinking about Christmas I thought why can’t I display some of our pins on our Disney tree? So the idea for cork ornaments for my pins came about.
To make these I used cardboard and cork contact paper which you can find here. You could also use this type of cork but I used what I had at home. The pins popped right through and stayed put.
Use a large mug or something round to trace the circle on both the cardboard and the contact paper. Cut the shape out and peel the back off the cork and apply to the card board. Trim any excess off.
I like the look of the plain cork but I also wanted to add a little more so I glitter and modge podge for a few others. To do the glitter, apply modge podge onto the cork and then top with glitter. I dump a ton over top a paper plate and then dump what I don’t use back in. Which is usually like half the container. I really like extra fine glitter for projects like these but regular size works too. Once the glitter has tried top with another coat of modge podge to seal it.
You can use ribbon or hooks to hang your ornaments. I used a bakers twine for most of mine and ribbon for the purple one I did since my red and white bakers twine didn’t match.
It was fun to pick out some of our favorite pins to add onto to the tree. We collected the pins from Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party for several years and they have Just been sitting getting no attention. The Christmas Forever Pin aka Cocoa Queen pin are from Oh Yeah Apparel!
After doing the Christmas Pins I wanted to do some themed with our other favorites. I love Ariel so the purple glitter made since to me and the pins were perfect on there.
We both love all so many of the Pixar movies so a collage of our favorites was the perfect fit. My husband loves Eeyore so of course I did that one for him.
When we are there in a few weeks I’ll have to do some trading for some Minnie Mouse pins to do one for my daughter. I had planned too but I didn’t have very many to fill an ornament. What is great about these is you can customize them however you want to with pins, glitter and even paint.
If you collect Disney pins these will be the perfect addition to your Disney tree, or any tree. Do you collect Disney pins and trade them when your in the parks?
