Make a Magnetic Pin Dish

Have you ever lost a pin, and then later found it…  with your foot?  I had that happen once, and I am pretty sure everyone in the neighborhood heard my scream of agony.  Avoid that terrible situation with this clever idea from Maggie at Smashed Peas and Carrots!  She found some adorable little owl dishes that she turned into magnetic pin holders.  Aren’t they just too sweet?  You can do this project with just about any pretty little dish you happen to come across.  (It’s a great reason to buy some of those cute odds and ends on the housewares rack at the thrift shop!)  [how to make a magnetic pin dish]
