Airplane Picture Clips for a Corkboard

Last week, I updated you on the happenings of my oldest son’s Vintage Airplane Bedroom. Writing that post really got the wheels turning in my head and I was once again inspired. This room really needs a few airplane accents to even be considered as having a vintage airplane theme. All of this thinking led me to my latest project – airplane picture clips for a corkboard.

These are so amazingly easy to create. Feel free to follow along if you would like to make your own.


1 Standard Wooden Clothes Pin
1 Large Popsicle Stick
1 Small Popsicle Stick
1 Thumbtack
Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Wood Stain & Brush (optional)

Thumtack Photo Holder

First, I stained both Popsicle sticks and the clothes pin with Minwax Special Walnut.

I used a foam brush and white acrylic paint to give the sticks matching white stripes. This step is entirely optional if you are making your own.

Next, the large Popsicle stick was hot glued to the clothes pin. I positioned it to cover the metal piece.

Then, I repeated the same step for the smaller stick. This time I placed the stick near the end of the clothes pin.

Finally, I flipped over the clothes pin and hot glued the thumbtack near the end that clamps down.

My little guys both loved it so much they helped me make a few more for them to play with. Minus the thumbtack of course.
