Such a pin from old plastic bottles and the like can look really cute, can’t it?
Now I’m debating with myself on whether I should collect these, too.

When I saw the drinking straw pin I thought: ‘Oh yes, I want!’ ;-)
It is quite easy: I took two different coloured drinking straws, cut them (veeery carefully!) into spirals with an X-acto knife und knotted them (not too firm) together.
This way my little ball stays in form without glue, sewing or the like.
I wanted to cut them first with scissors but I got ugly edges, the cut must be made with a really sharp cutting tool.
I find it cute as well as jewelry as well as tree ornament ;-)

Ok, ok, today is Saint Nicholas, but here the show is already over, the boot wasn’t only filled but emptied already and life goes on.
And to let it go on neatly (at least concerning sewing) the bobbin holders from spiral binders can help ;-))
So in case that you still have to sew something for Christmas everything should go more easily now :)
