Hidden Storage Door Stop (doorstop?) tutorial

As we live in an old house we have old doors.  Doors that like to stick, or not shut. . . anyways, we needed some doorstops, we also need storage (always) because I keep so much junk useful stuff. What I ended up with is nothing like what I started out to make, but here it is. . . I started out with this container and smeared glue all over it -


Then covered it with felt and added some foam to the top and covered that as well. I have to get some prettier felt -


Then made these felt yo-yo’s that I’ve seen online and glued and sewed them to some skewers. Did the same with some felt leaves – and here we go!


The best part . . . hidden storage!!


The lid comes off so you can keep your treasures inside! Now, as I said this is not what was in my head but . . .  I have to go find my diamonds now so I can hide them in here – shhhhhhhhhh!
