There are many jokes around people on Pinterest pinning so much that they never have time to actually do anything that they pin.
Does that sound familiar?
I know it rang true to me for the craft projects I pin.
Many of you already know that I’m a contributor to the Graco Heart to Heart blog. What you may not have noticed on the blog though, is the Pinterest Potluck features. Basically a small group wanted to stop just pinning and take the time to create something fun together. So over lunch, one Friday a month, everyone gets together to complete a small Pinterest project. I was very excited to join the group, since I am not really one to craft on my own at home. I have been cooking some recipes from Pinterest, but the craft ideas were just kind of hanging out on my boards.
The first meetup I was able to participate in was making fabric covered tacks and magnets. The inspiration and initial pin came from the incredible blog How about Orange. We didn’t need a ton of supplies, just scissors, fabric scraps, flexible magnets, glue gun, and the buttons to cover. I made all magnets so I could put them on the filing cabinet at my desk.
It was a great time and I can’t wait for next month’s project!
You can get the full details and see the HOW TO tutorial from How About Orange’s blog post HERE.
