I cut out the letters for "dream" using different pages in magazines. Anything with a cool background or fun colors works. Just stencil it and cut!

Glue the thumb tacks onto your flowers (or any other decorative item you have) using tacky glue or a hot glue gun. This way you can add and move them around easily with no fuss.

Finally, thumb tack your pictures onto the board. I overlap them a little bit, and then pin them where they overlap to save tacks. When you are done pinning, feel free to add your decorations!
