Pin Cushion Holder

Pin cushion holder that resembles an ol' fashioned Easter hat.

Approximate Time 45 minutes


  • 6 inch circle of cardboard or other stiff material
  • Ad
  • tuna fish can
  • 12x12 inch fabric
  • 12x12 inch printed fabric
  • craft flowers
  • lace
  • craft beads
  • glue gun
  • glue sticks
  • stuffing
  • ribbon


  1. Cover 6 inch round circle with plain fabric and glue in middle, flatten.
  2. Take tuna can, add stuffing and cover with printed fabric, make sure fabric is flattened underneath and glue to 6 inch circle.
  3. Glue lace around tuna can or whatever you think. I added lace and beads and small flowers.

It looks like a old time Easter hat and then I glued on a hook on back if I wanted to hang it on the wall someday.

If you don't want to use the metal can, use a spray paint can top. You can also put them on a canning jar lid, using it like an embroidery hoop. Pull the fabric over the stuffed spray paint can top & through the ring on the can. Then put in the lid & screw the whole thing back onto the jar & put sewing suppiles in the jar. I've seen these at craft fairs & they sell like crazy . You can make a smaller pin cusion for the jar by just making a small kind of pillow

of stuffing & put the fabric over it.

Very Pretty.
