Pin Cushion Jar and Matching Wrist Cushion

I saw this idea on A Girl and a Glue Gun and just had to make it. It was harder than it looked but with the help of my engineer husband I figured it out. The trick is to cut the cardboard small enough so that the glass jar fits when you screw it all together. The one I cut too big I glued some ribbon around the edge and glued a piece of elastic so that I can wear it on my wrist.


  1. I love it! I totally want to make one of these and I almost made a pincushion the other day when I lost mine (I found it before I made a replacement, but I still kind of want to make one, haha)!

    I'm excited to meet another crafty scientist! If you want, along with Caroline at c.w. frosting, I started a linky for crafty scientists. Just a way for all the crafty scientists out there to connect and find each other... you just add your button by visiting my Peers page. We'd love to have you - it's a pretty fun group! And you can grab a "I'm a Crafty Scientist" button too, if you want!

    Also, just in case you didn't know, you're a no-reply blogger so I couldn't email respond to your comment... you can find a tutorial to help you fix that here. You'll probably get lots more comments/replies to your comments from bloggers if you do that too! : )

  2. Thanks for joining the crafty scientist linky! The pin cushions came out great! Love the bracelet fix too.
