I am always on the lookout for unique pieces to use for creating one of a kind pincushions and recently found some orphan candlesticks, some with a bit more wear than others, but all just perfect for what I needed! There is nothing that brings me more creative joy than to take something that has lost its former use, and turning it into something new, useful and special! I hope you think so too!!
Each pincushion has been created with different upholstery fabric, firmly attached to each candlestick with lots of stitching and is stuffed with both polyfil and crushed walnut shells to keep all those pins and needles sharp! The fabrics have all been distressed to create the look of age, and lots of old and vintage embellishments have been added as well!!
These have all been added to my picture trail, should you be interested in reading a more detailed description.
Thank you so much for stopping by today for a visit!! I am always so encouraged by your sweet comments and hope that you too are being inspired to create the things you love and that bring not only you but others much joy!!
Wishing you creative inspiration~~~
