This is the easiest project ever, and I give credit to Kerryanne at Shabby Art Boutique. She has a beautiful blog about shabby with lots of craft ideas. She is also an artist. I did not know this trick! I found a little bowl that didn't belong to a set that I had lying around. A vintage bowl would be nice, but each one I picked up my daughter said, "No, not that one."
I used four magnets, because I could not find one single, bigger strong one. I positioned them so they would not repel each other and hot glued them on rather messily. These were 5/8 size which was between the size of a dime or a nickel, but thicker.
Now the pins have some traction in the bowl. The package of magnets was 2.00 and I still have four left to pick up the spare pins that we drop on the floor. Who would have known!? I'm sure lots of you do, but I never payed attention to my mother's sewing lessons. This week, we are working on a couple of projects that involve pins, and this will come in handy.
Thank you for visiting.
