I bought a large canvas over a year ago for my Donald collection but haven't put it together yet. (Still not enough pins...) I painted mine instead of putting fabric over it so I can't make any mistakes when I finally put them on it. I was concerned that over time the weight of the pins might make it sag or warp or something. Have you had any problems with that?
Love this idea; only concern is that displaying pins in the open air over time & they can start to either rust or tarnish. I guess one could put a piece of glass over the whole thing with a frame?
I live these ideas! i suppose with the canvas, one could buy Disney fabric instead of black. Or even paint, sketch, trace, and/or watercolor an appropriate background! I can't draw, but I could see me tracing an image onto the canvas--or a cloth covering the canvas.
