Shabby Chic Stick Pin Display’s

Hi everyone… Happy Monday to you all πŸ™‚ everyone happy to be back to work today?

Tonight up in my shed I needed to make something in order to display my stick pins…

I took a large polystyrene / styrofoam ball and cut it in half, placed a cardstock circle on the base and a layer of felt on top of the cardtock… then I took some more of the felt, some pink lace and some flower trim et voila! Β Instant shabby chic stick pin display units πŸ™‚

I made 2… one for ordinary pins and the other one for my flower pins..

and the ordinary decorative pins

and both together ..

I also made some more.. well 8 pink flower pins tonight, and share them tomorrow once they are completely dry πŸ™‚

Thanks so much for dropping by πŸ™‚

Flowery Memo Pins and the wee Bike

It’s a beautiful sunny day here today.. and after my sunday morning swim, and droviving my son to work, I headed up to my shed to make something…

It is also my DT project for this wee for Wild Orchid Crafts… the main focus is on using pearls, Rhinestones and Flowers πŸ™‚

The idea is that you can use it as a card holder / Memo Holder / Note Holder etc.. etc ..

But before they can be used I will be researching online tonight to find a source for these clips so that I can finish the projects off

I love taking photographs when the sun is shining through the shed window πŸ™‚
