DIY pin cushion out of coffee can

This is a very quick and easy DIY pin cushion project. It took me about 10 min to finish it.

This was a small tint coffee can with a plastic  lid. I have decoupaged it with recycled fabric. This fabric used to be a baby dress. I also sew a heart for the pins. I used dish sponge for the filling.

I have used the scrapes of butterfly ribbon to decorate the can and I used the organic rope for the edges.

You can see that the lid opens up and I store the threads or ribbons inside and the pins and needles on the top. It’s a cute DIY project you can make using hot glue gun and fabric scrapes. Check out my Pinterest boards for more inspiration.
