Disney Pin Wall Display

Our son loves collecting Disney trading pins. He keeps some and trades others during our trips to the parks and on cruises. Several years ago, I helped him start a pin wall display. The initial display had a shadowbox to feature special pins he planned to keep and a framed cork board for some he wanted to enjoy but might later trade.

His trading pin collection has quickly outgrown this display. Looking to expand, I purchased two new options – a small square cork board and a rectangular shadow box. We measured both and used paper plus painters tape to lay out their locations on the wall to the left of the existing display.

This was a great experience to help our teen decorate his room to his style while also learning some basic skills. I had him measure and use the tools. He put the nails and screws in the wall. Not me.

After getting the hanging hardware in place, we removed the painters tape. Then my son carefully hung the new pieces. First the cork board, then the shadowbox.

Once he had the new pieces hung, we stepped back to take it in and were pleased with the arrangement. He’s still working on which pins will be in which spot.

He collects Goofy pins so those will have a full board dedicated. The two shadowboxes will hold other special trading pins that he plans to keep. The original framed corkboard on the bottom right is where he keeps pins for future trading.

Also hanging as part of his pin wall display are his medals from our two Castaway Cay 5ks we completed in 2022 and a lanyard he was given in a Fish Extender exchange on our first Disney Cruise.
