How To: Make Typographical Thumbtack Art

One thumbtack is forgettable. 700 thumbtacks are fabulous. At least the way Virginia arranged them. She started with a 12" x 12" canvas onto which she outlined  in pencil a big ampersand. Then it was just a matter of filling the figure in with thumbtacks. To review the entire construction process, visit Live Love DIY. I adore the outcome as wall art, but I'd LOVE to get the same effect on a pillow. Any suggestions for replacing the thumbtacks with something a little more pillow-friendly?
