Salt & Peppa here....

Happy Mother's Day y'all!

I happened upon a video by a lovely lady called the bead fairy 1 where she altered salt and pepper shakers as a gift for her bestie.  So I wanted to try my hand at it.


So here is what I made....Yeah...it's a pin cushion.


I layered it with lace, pearls, even made small little flowers (with the help from a video from a lovely lady from the UK - Jennings 644).


I added roses and organza ribbon bows.


I decorated the stick pins and placed them into the little holes on top.


This was a lot of fun and makes a great gift.  I couldn't find shakers at the dollar store but another store had them on clearance for less than a dollar.  Yep....I'll be making more of these...



Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.  Happy Crafting! :~)
