My magnetic pin holder was quite an ugly blue plastic thing. Now with the help of a lovely antique ceramic dish my magnetic pin holder is beautiful.
Just a few minutes and a few supplies is all you need!
DIY Magnetic Pin Dish Supplies
ceramic dish or plate with an indented area on the bottom where a magnet can fit
1 or 2 heavy duty magnets (no taller than the ridge on the bottom of the dish)
How to make a magnetic pin holder
Hot glue the magnets to the bottom of the dish with a tiny amount of glue. I used hot glue so if I changed my mind I could easily peel off the magnets later.
Add the pins and you have a magnetic pin holder. What a great way to make those handpainted family treasures useful. I think these would also make wonderful gifts!
