Creating New Pinterest Boards

Pinterest lets you create any number of boards, each dedicated to specific topics. If you’re into quilting, you can create a Quilting board; if you’re into radio-controlled airplanes, you can create an RC Airplanes board with pictures of your favorite craft.

Create a Board

When you first join Pinterest, you need to create boards to match your personal tastes. You can create new boards at any time—and as many as you like.
