DIY: Floral Pin


It's spring and the flowers all a-bloom, but who says that flowers should have all the fun?  I thought I'd join in with the spring flora and wear a few pretty petals of my own.  This project is quick, easy and costs next to nothing.  Plus, you'll rival the best blooms out there.

HERE'S THE HOW TO:

What you'll need:


Just a few notes on the supplies:

I chose a simple cream colored flower this time, but can't wait to make some more in vibrant hues. At the craft store, you'll find a large selection of colors and flower styles, making it easy to find one (...or two, or three) that suit your style.

Also, I purchased the pin I used at a craft store, but you could easily sew on an old safety pin you've got lying around the house as well.  Thrifty!

Method:

1.  Remove the stem and leaves from the flower.  I just snipped these off with a pair of scissors.

2.  Sew the pin onto the back of the flower.  It is best to sew the pin a little above the center of the flower so that it hangs nicely when you wear it.  Here is what the back of mine looks like:



And that is all there is to it.  Enjoy!


Speaking of flowers, how my cRaZy puppy Tanner enjoys his flowers vs. how I enjoy mine.
