Thumb Tack Wreath
I don’t usually sit still long enough to finish a project like this but fortunately there was something on TV worth sitting for. I saw this thumb tack wreath on dollarstorecrafts and thought I would like to try it. It was certainly easy enough to do but halfway through I was like “really?” I was so ready to throw it out. Crocheting was more entertaining than putting 1,000 (literally) tacks into a circle piece of styrofoam. But the end result is certainly pretty.
You can pick up thumb tacks anywhere – but they were $1 for 300 at the dollar store and I used 1,000. The styrofoam wreath mold was purchased from the thrift store for $.50 so I have no idea how much they normally are.
You simply start plugging the tacks into the styrofoam – again and again and again…and so on and so on…
