Enamel Pins Galore – My Collection

If theres one thing that I buy way too much of, its definitely enamel pins. They come in just about any design you could possibly want, and another plus.. many have glitter paints and designs to make them especially cute. Over the last year or so it seems that I’ve built up a tiny collection, and I felt like it was time to share! This excludes my Walt Disney World trading pins (those deserve their own post!) but many of these came from local markets or conventions that I attend. Plus, they’re great little pieces that help to support local designers and small shops.

How To Wear Enamel Pins

This is where the fun really begins! There are tons of fun ways to either display or wear your pins, so you can share the happiness with everyone! Personally, I keep mine on display in my apartment, but here are a ton of fun ways to display or wear your pins!

  • Wear them on a lanyard (use these locking backs to keep them safe!)
  • Wear them on your shirt collar
  • Wear them on a cardigan to add extra color
  • Pin them to a hat or scarf
  • Pin them to your backpack (again, locking backs please!)
  • Display them on a banner

My Enamel Pin Collection

a little palmful of happiness

I tend to gravitate towards pastel, cutesy kinds of pins (you’ll see that shortly) which makes them all sort of blend together in a nice aesthetic heap.

Cute ghibli goodness

My all time favorite spot to get pins is from Kittynaut’s Etsy shop. I’m lucky that they are frequently at cons in my area (hooray!) so I tend to pick up a few pins every time that I see them. They are some of the sweetest people and always put a smile on my face when I see them at conventions.

The above pins are:

Mimosa Studio Art is a new favorite of mine, I saw them at my last con and they have some of the CUTEST pastel pins I’ve ever seen. Their designs are super original and cute and I can’t wait to wear my little shark pins.

Cute, pastel, and sassy. Pretty much me.

A local shop that I love sells these pins made by Hand Over Your Fairy Cakes! They make some of the snarkiest and cutest pins out there, with tons of kick butt sayings and cute colors and glitter! I love anything with snark, and these are about as perfect as they come.
