But it turned out there are so many things you can decorate with these. You’ll find an inspiring list at the end of this post!

Only three things on the list! So it’s also a frugal craft 😉

supplies needed to make super easy wooden DIY photo board pegs

  • Silk Flowers (I think silk flowers are best bought at your local dollar store)
  • Mini Wooden Pegs (I found this amazing combo of a jute twine and wooden pegs. You could simply span the twine and hang your latest family photos from it, using your DIY flower pegs.)
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks (that is my cordless hot glue gun I really like)

I bought $14 worth of silk flowers at my local dollar store this spring. I used them initially to make my be happy” cardboard cut-out sign and still have a ton left. I had a lot of fun working with the left-overs ever since…

  2. glue several pieces (flowers, leaves) together, like I did in the following picture.

Step 2 – Add Wooden Clothespin

Grab a mini wooden peg and add hot glue to one side. Please, pay attention to not burn your fingers. The pegs are super tiny and the hot glue is super hot!
