Very Nice Job< outside the box. May I ask how do you make the long pins? What do you use for the base of the pin? Thanks

Thank you. Go to www.firemountaingems.com & put stick pin in the search section, there are gold & silvers ones to choose from..then all you need are your beads to slip on.
Have fun.

This is just stunning!! I love the ideas you have for the bases. I have made some but the candle holders(as suggested in the pattern) are a bit hard to come by. I have plenty of old cd's. Might try one tomorrow.

May I suggest looking for candle sticks at consignment shops? I found some at the Salvation Army Thrift Store and the Goodwill at good prices, Maybe you can check there too. Hope this helps.

the base is great. Not always easy to find a 'candlestick' is it, and you have done it well by your imagination and improvisation.

Hi, Very nice. Is it an idea you have found or can you tell where I can find it. I absolutely love it. I myself have a friend who sews a lot. I'd like to make it and then give it away as a friend a gift.

Thank you. This base was done using 2 Cd's glued together topped & tailed with fabric & a cotton reel/spool was again used in the middle. Have fun adding your bases.

My Late DH always told me that I never think outside the square. Thanks for this idea. Lyn
