DIY Hat Pin Holder

I have been very busy working on my business. (So far everything that could go wrong has, including my brand new serger breaking. Twice.) I haven't even had time to read blogs, let alone post on my own! But as I seem to have a few minutes today, here is a little tutorial for a hat pin holder. I love how it takes up very little space on my shelf and keeps all my hat pins organized. 


You will need:
-Small picture frame
-Scrap of fabric slightly larger than your frame (choose something with a loose enough weave to be able to put the pins through. I used some velvet)

Step 1: Remove glass from frame.
Step 2: Insert fabric into frame. You may need to tape, sew, or glue the fabric to the edges of the backing. (I just squished the fabric between the frame and backing, and it seemed to work fine. Lighter weight fabrics likely wouldn't work as well.

And that's pretty much it. You just insert the pins by pushing them through the fabric.

  1. I'm so sorry that you've been experiencing such a rocky start to getting your business going, honey. Some of the best things in life are born of adversity, but that doesn't make the adversity any easier to deal with in the moment. Fingers firmly crossed that things go much better for you in August and beyond.

    Wonderful howto - so easy and pretty, thank you for sharing.

  2. I literally just now finished a version of this for some of my brooches! It's sitting here by the computer as I type because I haven't even walked it back to my vanity yet. :)
