I collect lapel pins when I travel. I found this map paper at a nearby paper store and picked up this beveled edge canvas to mount it on to display my pins. Canvas frame is hollow at the back and thin enough to pierce easily.
Lapel Pin Display. Transformed a $5 old decor piece from a thrift store into a display for my lapel pin collection. Sanded a little but kept the aged wood texture. Pained with chalk paint and distressed with black acrylic paint. Later on might distress it more using the sanding method. Customized foam strips to hold the pins and attached them using magnets.
