Tacks have become a popular dollar store craft supply this fall! Here’s another great way to use tacks: as an embellishment for wall art, like reader Mom2Ian did over at Ghetto Idealist. She created this wall art by taking some line art, coloring it, adding some decorative cut paper, and then finishing off with metallic thumbtacks. The patterned paper and tacks add a lot of texture and style to this simple art project. You can use this technique to add some metallic shine to just about any wall art — use tacks on art you already have, or create something new! [how to make tack embellished wall art]
