Recycled Pin Cushion

Save a cap/top from your liquid laundry detergent container. Rinse and wipe dry. To weight the cap/top, fill half of the center with aquarium stones or, if you live near the beach, use some small pebbles from the shore (getting these could be part of the project). Level the bottom of a styrofoam ball that fits the center opening of the cap/top, so that the ball rests on the pebbles. Cover the ball with a small piece of fabric, gluing around the bottom edge. Then glue the fabric-covered ball to the inside of the cap/top. Glue extra pebbles into the open edge around the outer edge of the cap/top and you have a nice pin cushion.


Elmer's glue is good for this project. It cleans up okay and dries clear. Have fun. I did.
