Diy spring sewing pin cushion with storage {using candle jar}

{DIY SPRING PIN CUSHION}
Materials needed:
Empty candle jar with lid
Hot glue gun
ribbon
fabric of your choice
Optional decorative flower
Scissors
poly-fil

Start off by cutting your fabric to place onto your lid.
I took a marker and traced a circle a little bigger than the lid
Using my poly-fil I glued it onto the lid.

 After I  took my fabric and covered the poly-fil and started gluing my fabric to the under side of
my lid. I normally have bad luck when doing this and it seems as though the lid won't close completely
But I used a thinner fabric and the lid actually grips the jar, so it worked out.

Your lid should be able to fit securely onto your jar.
I then took my hot glue and applied my ribbon around the bottom of my cushion.
This is optional, but if you would like you can add a flower to add just a little extra cuteness to your pin cushion.
Enjoy!
