Strange, true and totally adorable: a pincushion that's wearable... and looks like a cake. Your crafting life is now officially sweeter than ever.
Here's how to DIY your own!
What you need
- Three makeup sponges
- Fabric paint
- Paint brush
- Puff paint
- Hot glue gun
- Velcro dots
- Scissors or X-ACTO knife
1. Paint the sponges
Paint all sides of the makeup sponges your favorite color.
2. Make the cake
Cut a “slice” out of each makeup sponge. (To make the slices even, it might help to make a template to guide each cut.
When the pieces are cut and the paint is dry, stack the sponges and secure them with hot glue.
3. Paint with puff
This is where you have all the freedom to deck out your cake however you want. We made cute flowers, but you can make whatever you want. Once it's painted, let it dry.
4. Glue it and wear it!
Cut a length of ribbon that fits comfortably, but securely, around your wrist. Glue the cake cushion to the center of the ribbon, so it’ll rest on the back of your wrist.
Now glue the velcro dots on either end of the ribbon. This might seem super obvious, but it's easy to make a mistake here: Make sure the velcro lines up so you can wear the ribbon, and be sure to stick one dot on the side facing up, and the other on the side facing down.
When the glue is dry, just strap the ribbon around your wrist and get to work on your next project.
