Repurposed Tin-Magnetic Pin Cushion

The only watches I have ever purchased or asked for as gifts were Fossil watches. The first watch I ever bought for myself was a Fossil (I was fourteen years old) and then I asked for a new one for Christmas almost every year after that. The thing I love almost more than the watch itself are the metal tins they come in. I saved most of the tins and kept jewelry in them growing up. Now that I’m an adult it seemed pretty juvenile so I started keeping craft supplies in them. Then it hit me to add a magnet to the inside of the lid and I could use it to catch pins and other metal pieces I had floating around. This is the perfect solution for any type of tin including lovely vintage ones!

  1. This is a fabulous idea! I have a generic "tomato" pin cushion that came with my sewing kit. No matter how hard I try to keep all my pins in it I still find some under the table days after packing up my sewing supplies. Thankfully no one has stepped on one yet. I'm gonna rummage around for a metal tin now.

  2. I love this idea. I found you over at Craftaholics Anonymous. I'm so excited to find another CFL DIY blogger!!! p.s. I love this idea.

  3. Awesome idea, but I have a dumb question. Where can I get the magnets? I know where I could get magnet tape, but I don't think that would be strong enough.
