Butterfly Pin Cushion
I always struggled to get the pins out of the little plastic box they came in, it seemed I could never grab just one at a time. A pin cushion was the perfect solution. After seeing this tutorial on Make It & Love It, I was on the look out for a cute ceramic candle holder. Instead, I found a cute little butterfly candy dish! I found it at Micheal's for about $2. With Easter coming up, there are a lot of cute containers in fun colors available. I was able to use a scrap of fabric from my stash that matches my Target bulletin boards. I hot glued the fabric into the container, which ended up a little wonky, but that just adds character, right? Then I hot glued a blue bow and a sparkly butterfly button onto it to add a cute touch. I think it turned out great, and because it's not as tall as a votive holder, I shouldn't be able to knock it off the table as easily (I hope).
