Pretty Pin Cushions


I went over to thank my friend Lululiz for the tips on how to spot MOP buttons.
(post here)
and look what I found! ( above pic)
She had made two pin cushions from an idea she saw here!
Pin cushions made with candlesticks.
(pictured below)

Didn't' she do a great job??
I love the danglies hanging down, don't you?

So here are more ideas for you!!

Blessings

PS be sure to let me know if you make anything from ideas you see here.
I would love to show them off to my friends. =)

I am loving these pin cushions! I need a cute one for my new studio. Wish you were selling them! So darn cute! I guess I'll have to make one.

I do make them to sell.
Have one candle stick left that has place for buttons.
(or I know you can make a lovely one yourself. Just letting you know.)

Hi Barbara Jean,

I collect candlesticks for this very reason..most of mine are not glass though...I love these..they are just so beautiful. They would make a good collection to start. :0)

I hope your New Year is off to a great start.

I really enjoyed making those candlestick pincushions. I gave one as a Christmas present to a dear friend, and she really loved it. So thank you once again for the great idea. x

This just great, I start early on homemade Christmas gift and these are great. I thank God for people who don't find it selfish to share. My motto a close hand can neither receive or give. Thanks again for sharing.
