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

Approximate Time 45 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

  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.

This pretty pin cushion will keep mother's pins sharp and handy while at the same time giving off a subtle scent. When she wants she can change the bar to another scent and use the last one for bathing.
