I love an inexpensive project that looks amazing. That is why when I came across this pin of Typographical Thumbtack Wall Art by Jessica Hische on Flickr I knew I had to try it.

The space over our bed was crying out for something, so off I went to the 99 Cents Only Store in hopes of finding some materials. I came across a box of 300 thumb tacks for… you guessed it… 99cents, and I drove home to have a bit of fun with them.

I grabbed a piece of kiddo’s chalk and wrote out the word “Love”. After I was sure I liked how it looked, I started to push in those thumb tacks one by one by one. One hour, 300 thumb tacks and a sore thumb later, I had this:

I really like how it turned out. I added a little framed picture of me and my hubby on our wedding day to round everything out.

It is a good thing that I love it because as a friend pointed out to me… I am going to have 300 tiny little holes to fill if I ever want to change it! :)
