DIY Magnetic Pin Dish

I found the cutest trinket dish while I was perusing the craft section at Target (here). I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but knew I needed it. :)

A few days ago I was sewing and I realized that I really wanted a magnetic dish to place my pins n. I have a pin cushion, but the lazy girl in me really wanted to be able to lay the pins in as I took them out of the piece I was working on. I know, I know, silly, right. But it got me thinking. I had the perfect use for my recent impulse buy.

Here's what I used:

I used three 1/2" magnets to glue on the back of the dish.

Then I used a black sharpie to draw dots on the inside. Then I very carefully used a bright pink sharpie to color the ledge of the dish.

This could definitely be used for other trinkets instead of pins. It would be perfect for jewelry, especially earrings. And would make a great diy gift. I seriously love the way it turned out! I hope you love it too. What could you use this diy for? Who on your gift list could use this cute dish? xo Britt
