Create Story Pins

View instructions for:

Heads up! Story Pins are a work in progress and aren’t available to everyone yet. We’re constantly making changes, so you might see different versions of the feature depending where you are.

Story Pins can include multiple images, videos and text.

You can use Story Pins to:

  • Create a step-by-step guide

  • Show steps for a DIY project or recipe

  • Tell a story

  • Curate a collection of products

Each Story Pin has a cover image and title. People will see Story Pins in their Pinterest home feed and can tap on the cover image to open the full Story Pin.
