DIY Pinboard made of straws

Decor, Pinboard

In the last few years I got a bunch of “save the date”-cards, wedding invitations, thank you cards and the like. I didn’t want to decorate my nice white walls with colored post cards that do not fit to each other and to my interior. So, I never found the right space for them and threw them away. When the couples visited me after their weddings and could not find their handmade cards, they were upset and I felt bad. This was why I was searching for a flexible and stylish solution that fits to my interior design: Pinboards are a structured way of decorating your wall. In my easy DIY approach, I demonstrate how you get the best results.
