How to Wear Enamel Pins Without Ruining Clothes

Enamel pins are a fun and fashionable way to add some personality to your outfits, but if you're not careful, they can also cause damage to your clothes. Here are some tips on how to wear enamel pins without ruining your clothes:

Where to Put Enamel Pins...

  1. Choose the right fabric: Some fabrics are more prone to snagging and tearing than others. Avoid wearing enamel pins on delicate fabrics like silk, chiffon, or lace, as the pins can easily catch on the fabric and cause damage. Instead, opt for thicker fabrics like denim, canvas, or leather, which are more durable and can withstand the weight of the pins.

  2. Pin with care: When pinning enamel pins to your clothes, be gentle and avoid pushing or pulling too hard on the pin. If you have to apply extra pressure to get the pin to stay in place, it may be a sign that the pin is too heavy for the fabric.

  3. Place your Enamel Pins in durable places, such as denim jackets, cork boards or a specific special back pack. If you are too worried about ruining your clothes, these are some great alternative placements to display your enamel pins. Denim jackets are tough and durable, cork boards/pin displays are great to show off your pins in your home, or purchase a backpack that is specifically for pins - this way you are prepared for holes to be left.

  4. Remember to store pins safely: When not in use, store your enamel pins in a safe place to prevent them from getting lost or damaged. You can use a pin storage box or container to keep your pins organized and protected.

By following these tips, you can enjoy wearing enamel pins without worrying about damaging your clothes. Happy pinning!
