Those Thumbtacks are to boring for my DIY corkboard. So I wanted to Spruce them up a bit. And remember, you don't have to use buttons and a binder clip like I do, use whatever you want to serve as your pushpin on your corkboard :)
First you need the things that you want to glue on your plain flat head pushpins.
Cut the shank (the loop thingy) off with a pair of scissors or wire cutters. Here I use scissors because the button was made of plastic.
Then glue you thumbtack onto the button with hot glue. Make sure to enclose the pushpin with glue so it cannot come lose.
For the binder clip. Take your clip, your pushpin and your glue. And what do you get when you fuse all of that together?
A new multifuncional pushpin!! Hope you try this out, it's so simple and it really makes you corkboard look nicer :P
