Thumbtack Font Wall Art

typography thumbtack font art

I’m a huge fan of cheap materials that look awesome (thus, my fixation on dollar store crafts), and thumbtacks are the kind of material that can swiftly be promoted from lowly office supply to design element. I love this typographical wall treatment by Jessica Hische. It took her 1000 thumbtacks, an afternoon, and hand-sketched typography on a wall.

If you’re not as confident with your hand-lettering, try aiming a projector with your desired lettering at the wall, and sketch in pencil. Then fill in the blanks with thumbtacks.
