How to make an upcycled enamel pin display using an embroidery hoop
Hi I'm Branden, sub chief packing minion at Jubly HQ.
Sometimes I want to be crafty, but I don’t have the time or (sometimes) the patience. So, I came up with a way to make a super quick and easy pin board for Tash using only an embroidery frame, and one of her patch designs! It's so super simple that anyone can do it. Even ME!
I love the look of a round embroidery frame, and they are so easy to hang on a wall. They are easy to find at any fabric store, and they can often be found in a bargain bin at your local charity shop.
(Me with my massive op shop haul!)

Anyway, on to the instructions on how to make your pin board...
What you’ll need:
- Embroidery frame
- Jubly-Umph iron on patch (see discount code above!)
- An iron
- Glue gun or Fabric glue
- Jubly pins!
- Pick your favourite fabric.
- Lay your embroidery frame on top of the fabric.
- Draw a circle around the frame with a pencil.
- Remove the frame and cut out the fabric with your scissors.
- Lay your fabric on an ironing board and grab your Jubly patch.
- Centre your patch in your drawn circle, then follow the directions to iron the patch onto your fabric.
- Centre the ironed-on patch in the frame and close the frame around your fabric. Trim off the extra fabric using your scissors.
- Plug in your glue gun in preparation to add your lace, then remove the fabric from your frame. (You can also use a fabric glue)
Important Note: Keep the glue in a small thin line and avoid clumping as it will not go back into the frame correctly.
- Attach your lace to the edge of your fabric.
- Pop your embroidery frame back on.
- Add your pins to your new frame and hang on your wall or use a plate stand if you want to put it beside your bed.
If you want to be a bit more creative, bling up your frame by painting it to match some of the other colours in your room.
So there you have it: A quick and easy pin display.
