The one with the soldier pushpin DIY

A whole bag of toy soldiers came home with me after a trip to the thrift store last year. For only 1 euro for a ginormous bag, I couldn't leave them there. What to do with them, was something to figure out later. During a recent cleaning adventure, they were rediscovered and some of them gotten turned into pushpins. 


What you'll need:
  • toy soldiers
  • spray paint
  • pushpins
  • fast drying glue



What you'll need to do:

Spray

After letting them dry, glue

Stick

Dry

Done!
