Today I am going to show you how to create your very own do-it-yourself magnetic pin holder. In the photo above is a photo of the 45 Tesla Hybrid Magnet..the world's strongest. We are going to make one for our selves. Ok..ok...so maybe it won't be as big...or as strong, but it is going to be so much more beautiful to look at! A big shout out and thanks to Martha Stewart for this idea.
For our project you will need a tube of Liquid Nails, a package of the thinnest, super strong magnets you can find. I got mine at Joann's. Visit your local thrift shop and look for a very shallow bowl or a saucer. You can make it any size you like. I am using a orphaned saucer from a broken set.
After washing and thoroughly drying your saucer, place a small dab of the glue on your magnet. Hint: be sure you are applying the glue to the right side...the idea is attract the pins, not push them away.
Carefully place the magnet in the center of the bottom and let dry one hour at least.
Once dry, flip your saucer over and ....Voila!
Isn't she beautiful? Definitely prettier than any pin holder you can buy. The plate cost me $.75, the magnet was $.35 and I already had the Liquid Nails. So for $1.10 I now have a fabulous magnetic pin holder for my sewing table...I Love It!!
Until next time...be kind and stay creative
