Framed burlap pin cushion

The other night I was working on my little craft closet (which, is coming together quite nicely, might I add!), and I got really sick of staring at my empty Ikea frame.

I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it...I just knew it needed something.
Luckily, I had some extra burlap from a project, so I cut a little square out and out it in there.
Only...It still looked too plain.

That's when a lightbulb went off. I remembered that I needed a pin cushion...And HEY! That'd be easy to make. Only... I had no stuffing.

Enter paper towel.



step one: cut burlap to size.
step two: stuff crumpled paper towel in there.

PHEW. That's it.
My kind of craft, for sure.



Also? Please ignore my awful no good horrible pictures. It was nighttime when I took them...Combine that with the fact that I craft in a closet under the stairs (with Harry Potter), and that's as good as they could get.

Thanks for reading!

  1. LOL! I love that you improvised with the paper towel.

    This is great. I don't think I'd lose a framed pincushion quite like how I lose my other ones.
