How to Use a Pin Cup

How to Use a Pin Cup

You know the phrase “two birds, one stone”? I like to think of it as the slogan for pin cups. A pin cup is essentially a small vase with a pin holder built into it and makes foam-free design super simple! They're fairly heavy so that they don't tip over and will give your stems *lots* of support.



  • Pin cup
  • Water
  • Snips or sharp scissors
  • Flowers


Step 1: Start with a clean pin cup. You can find them in different shapes and sizes here.

Step 2: Add water.

Step 3: Give your stems a fresh, angled cut.

Step 4: Place stems into the pins and get creative.


That's all there is to it! Where would you display a pin cup design?
