Feature Friday - magnetic pin dish

Yesterday I was taking a little look through Pinterest and I came upon this Magnetic Pin Plate from the Mother Huddle.  I thought it was quite clever.

Yesterday I set off to make my own.  

I had an odd shaped dish that I thought would be perfect for it.  I also decided to spray paint the outside of it yellow and leave the inside white.  I did this by laying it upside down and spraying it.  No taping off needed.  Easy peasy.

Then I glued on my magnets.  I used eight just to be sure, since the dish was kind of thick and long.

And now I have a cute little pin dish.  I love a quick, simple project.

That's all for today.  Thanks for dropping in.


  1. Love this--thankyou!!

  2. That is so cute. Love that you painted the outside and kept the inside white. Lovin it!!

  3. Oh that's really cool! I was given a magnetic pin dish (that you can buy from Joann's) for Christmas. I have a pin cushion I love (and that matches my craft room). I discovered on accident that my bobby pins stick to it! So now I use it for bobby pins in the bathroom, and it's awesome!

  4. I was actually wishing I had a magnetic container for my pins, thanks! I also want to say that I love how you have your thread stored! Looks great and you can see what you have vs in a drawer. Have a super day!

  5. That's cuuute!
