After making the new inspiration board for the study/craft room I needed something better than regular tacks. I had a bunch of flathead tacks in my stash. I had seen a post where they covered furniture buttons in fabric and attached the tacks to them. I also had some left over glass beads from my old apartment. When I was getting my pig (coming soon) ready to be primed I found he had quite a few old pennies in him. I decided to clean them and make them in to the tacks.
