DIY Tumblr PINS using a GLUE GUN

Today I have a cute Tumblr inspired tutorial for you. I’m going to show you the easiest way to make your own customizable Tumblr inspired DIY Glue Gun PINS / Brooches from scratch. Obviously using only a glue gun! It’s super easy and fun because you can make your own designs and even turn your logo or your name into a pin. There are lots of ways you can wear these pins – on your backpack, on your jean jacket, hat or bag. I think they look very cute on a jean jacket and they are easy and fun to make. So let’s get started!
