I thought of another really cute pincushion this week and set about to make it. All I needed was the candlestick, which I had painted with silver paint. To get the look of old Mercury glass, you first spray the clear glass with water, and then quickly follow with the silver paint. I do believe that You can also do this with other metallic paints I have not yet tried other paints, but I think I probably will.
Supples needed : glue, ribbon, lace doily, pretty material, round cardboard cut to fit the top of the candle stick, and batting.
I cut the material in a large circle and started to glue it down to the card board base. I then added the batting and finished gluing it.
I glued the base onto the top of the candle stick, and allowed it to dry. While it was drying I ran the ribbon thru the lace doi ly to gather it up.
Then I placed the lace doily over the top of the stuffed material and tied it around the candle stick. Thats all there was to it.
Hope you enjoyed this quick little DIY project and try to make one for yourself.
Well, that’s all the news from the south,
