Does anyone have any links to sites that sell pin display cases or any suggestions on how to display your various Disney pins ... it's time for the pins to come out from storage and be displayed :bounce:

You can display your pins in my book;)

I know this will sound a little different but I have used some pins to decorate switchplate covers in our home. I take the switch plate cover off (or buy a different one), sponge or brush paint it with colors that will complement the pins as well as the room it will be in, drill a hole large enough for the pin to go through, and then secure the pin to the switchplate (silicone glue and household cement have both done well). Before you drill the hole, make sure the pin itself will not contact any part of the wiring or the actual switch once the switchplate is put back on. If it will fit, I put the pin back back on. I then put the switchplate back on. We've pretty well "gone Disney" as far as home decor goes so I've done several with pins from both the DS as well as pins obtained while at WDW.

Just an idea....

Foz,

You are too funny. I don't think my DW & DD will let me mail them to you. How about sending me your pins and then I'll take a picture of them and post them here.;)

That is too bad ... I just found a nice pedestal that your book would have looked lovely on ... with my pins in them ;) ;)

I have what I call a sash hanging on my wall with pins grouped by subject or whatever on them. My big one is my Beauty & the Beast sash. It's basically material sewn (or glued) in a rectangle and hung with a dowel & ribbon. The material can either be decorated with ribbon or edging depending on your taste and the subject. It gives me the ability to change the pins and add new ones with little to no problem.
