I was bored and wanted something to fiddle with while I watched netflix.

I had these pins with tiny heads that I hated to use so I decided to make some pretty pins.



I need to make a flowerpot pincushion for them now.

I love them. They are so pretty.  How strong are they?  If I made some would I be able to use them like normal pins? Could I push them into cardboard for example?  I really really want to make some.  Thank you for the lovely pictures.

Love em!  I also get bored watching movies, etc and usually try to find something to keep me busy.  You used polymer clay?

Why recycle when you can upcycle?  Totally open to personal swaps, even if we make different stuff!

I saw this post in New Topics and said to myself "Hey! That hedgehog looks very familiar!" LOL!

Your pins are very pretty! I'd love to see them in a flower pot pin cushion. Cheesy

Thanks everyone for saying such nice things.

I love them. They are so pretty.  How strong are they?  If I made some would I be able to use them like normal pins? Could I push them into cardboard for example?  I really really want to make some.  Thank you for the lovely pictures.

I havnt baked them yet so I dont know if they would be cardboard sturdy. I do know that even unbaked they are sturdy enough to be picked up by the flower and poked into the pinchusion.

I saw this post in New Topics and said to myself "Hey! That hedgehog looks very familiar!" LOL!
lol yeah Hedgwig agreed to be the trial pinchusion for them. I need to find a little pot to make them there own.

Yes ReDesigns By D I used different poly clays. Very little of each color lol
