Cute Pin Cushion From an Old Candle

I made this pin cushion from a old candle container.  Its made of cement coated terra cotta.  I used a round styrofoam ball, covered it with quilt batting and then fabric, stuck it in the container with hot glue, embellished it with, a silver thimble, pins and buttons, then added various ribbons and lace.  A good re-use of a still worthy item.  


  1. How very neat!

    Happy Easter.

  2. great idea- i think i need to put one in my sewing room right by my sewing machine so the pins won't end up on the floor!
