I recently saw some decorative pincushions at a local craft fair. They were adorned with fake flowers, ribbons, vintage accessories, buttons, and all sorts of other things.

I had no idea where to get one. I looked on Etsy to see if perhaps the lady at the show had a shop. Nope. There weren't even any other shops that sold candlestick pincushions like these.
So, as my last resort, I made one! It went over quite well. I did double-stacked balls, with a bird on top and eggs around the base. Here are some shots I got:
