Other Great Peg Ideas…

Here are a few more great ideas we can think of for putting the humble peg to good use:

1) Create a wall of fame. Be it Bieber, Harry Styles or shots with their friends, attach a string along your kid’s bedroom wall including a pack of our fun pegs – this way they can change their posters as often as they like.

2) Reseal the deal. A perfect way to refasten those awkward food packets such as dried pasta, rice and bread.

3) Let’s stick together. If you’re trying to glue something fiddly together (maybe part of a model kit) pegs are a really handy way of holding the pieces together while you’re waiting for the glue to dry.

4) Keep it in place. If you fancy having the dinner outdoors for a change but it’s a little windy, keep your tablecloth from blowing away by turning your pegs into tablecloth weights; simply clip to the cloth edge along with a 2p piece for extra weight.
