Word art is a great trend because it manifests itself in so many different forms.  This one uses a dollar store staple: thumbtacks.  Elizabeth from Things Bright recycled an old canvas, painting over the existing design and using it as a background for her studded lettering.  Don’t have a canvas laying around?  Check your local thrift shop for tired old artwork that you can give new life.  The home decor section of the dollar store also sometimes has artwork that would be suitable for this project!  [how to make thumbtack word art]
