I'm in the process of revamping my craft room/den and wanted to be able to display my collection of knitting needles and also make them easily accessable.

Since I also had lots of vintage charms, beads, buttons and rhinestones I figured this would be a good way to toss them into the mix, too.

One of the containers is an old jam jar and the other one used to be a pencil cup. Smiley

The inside of both containers is lined with felt as to not dull the needles.

Awesome!!   I keep my needles in a red plastic cup, I think you've inspired me to upgrade.

What did you use to hold them on?  I tried etching a can and using a glue gun a while back, but it didn't hold up.

I love it!

I once attempted to display my knitting needles in an pretty vase, all artsy-like, but the feline thought they would look better on the floor.  Finally declared him the victor after picking the damn things up countless times; said needles are now tucked back in their roll.  Grumble.

I used a technique similar to mosaics but not quite - so it's a bit of grout and some glue as well. Smiley

Those are really cool. They look kind of mid century to me.
