Easy Giant Pincushion

(that's an antiquie sewing macine-it's not that giant of a pin cushion)

I am very proud of the shelves that I hung all by myself  (tutorial here)in my craft room, but they needed something fun -worthy of their awesomeness.  So I decided to make a GIANT pincushion.  I searched and searched for a pattern, but most of them were on quilting sites and would require way more effort then I was willing to spend, so I came up with my own:

Let me know if you have any questions.

Then I needed some giant pins.  I used BBQ skewers, wooden beads and spray paint (right after I took the pic, I remembered that I had some silver paint).  I just used hot glue to attach the balls on the skewers and gave them a coat of silver paint.

I cut tiny holes in the pincushion and slid the pins in the holes.
