Creative Ways to Display Your Dinsey Pins at Home:

Disney World Trading Pins Display

Shadow Box Display

Transform a shadow box into a whimsical showcase for your Disney pins. Arrange your pins on a fabric-covered backing, creating a visually appealing display that highlights each pin's unique design. Add decorative elements such as Mickey-shaped cutouts, fairy lights, or themed trinkets to enhance the magic. Hang your shadow box on the wall or display it on a shelf for a captivating focal point in any room.

Corkboard Gallery

Create a dynamic corkboard gallery to showcase your Disney pin collection. Cover a corkboard with fabric or decorative paper in your favorite Disney theme, such as Mickey Mouse or princesses. Use decorative pins or pushpins to attach your Disney pins to the corkboard, arranging them in a visually appealing pattern or grouping them by theme. Add colorful ribbons or string lights for an extra touch of whimsy.

Floating Shelves

Display your Disney pins in style with floating shelves arranged in a creative and eye-catching design. Install floating shelves on a wall in your home and arrange your pins in shadow boxes, display cases, or even miniature dioramas. Experiment with different layouts and configurations to create a visually dynamic display that showcases your pins in a magical way.

Vintage Frame Display

Give your Disney pins a touch of vintage charm by displaying them in antique frames. Remove the glass from the frames and attach a piece of fabric or foam board to create a pin-friendly backing. Arrange your pins on the fabric or foam board, mixing and matching different styles and themes to create an eclectic and visually interesting display. Hang the frames on the wall or display them on a mantel or shelf for a charming and nostalgic touch.

DIY Pin Board

Get crafty and create your own DIY pin board to showcase your Disney pins. Use foam board, corkboard, or even fabric-covered plywood as the base for your pin board. Arrange your pins on the board, securing them in place with decorative pins or glue dots. Personalize your pin board with Disney-themed embellishments such as stickers, ribbons, or character cutouts. Hang your DIY pin board on the wall or prop it up on a desk or shelf for a fun and functional display.

This is how we made our Disney Pin display:

Materials needed:


  1. Print and cut out your template.

  2. Trace the template on the corkboard.

  3. Cut along the corkboard with the exact knife.

I printed out some Star Wars templates I found online. I cut the templates out and traced them on the corkboard tile. Once traced, I cut along the lines with the Exacto knife. Done!

With these creative and enchanting ways to display your Disney pins at home, you can turn your space into a magical gallery of memories that celebrates your love for all things Disney. Whether you choose a shadow box display, corkboard gallery, floating shelves, vintage frame display, or DIY pin board, each option offers a unique and captivating way to showcase your collection and bring a touch of Disney magic into your home.
