Pin cushions for Mother's day

Decided to make some pin cushions out of nut cups, since I have so many. I had pink plastic ones like in the pic above, and paper ones like the one below. I used styrofoam balls covered in fabric, and then added bits of vintage millinery, lace, ric rac, buttons and sequins. I topped the one above with a vintage ballerina cake topper.
The one below, I made into a basket with some vintage chenille stem. These were so fun to make.

These are all listed on Etsy, so check them out if you can. Bye for now!
