DIY flower pins (10 minute DIY project)

DSC_1427-001

So let’s take a break from decorating our homes today and talk about decorating ourselves! Smile  We need some fun décor and accessories to wear too. (Especially since it is slowly becoming warm around here and I know I have limited time left with my cute winter scarfs Sad smile)

When the $5 Michael’s coupon came out a week ago, I showed you the cute little ceramic animals I got one day with a coupon.  But I also went another day to use another coupon and this is what I got…

5 stems of the most fun flowers I had ever seen…  They were $1.19 each so I paid right at $1.00 for all 5 after the $5 coupon.  I knew exactly what I was going to do with them – make some décor for me to WEAR in the form of flower pins! Smile

I pulled the stems off and then cut off any remaining stem as far down as I could.

Then I cut some felt circles out of some scrap felt sheets I had and glued them on the back with a hot glue gun.

I picked up a pack of pins at Michael’s later with a 40% coupon (you could also use the pinching hair clip type clips too.)  I glued the pins on the back of the felt circles.

Literally less than 10 minutes and I had 5 new flower pins! Smile

So I wanted to give you some ideas of what you can do with them.

Here’s the pink and brown one on a pink sweater.  Dresses up a plain sweater and makes it fun!

Here’s a black and white polka dot flower on a red vest with a white shirt.

Same flower pin with a black shirt and some fun jewelry (that I got from Lavonda’s Boutique – love her jewelry and her prices!)

Some fun jewelry and a red flower dress up this plain white t-shirt – would be so cute with a jean skirt!

I think the zebra black and white one is my favorite… add in some red and it makes it so fun!

Here’s the brown animal print flower on a black shirt…

And the last example is the black and white polka dotted flower on a black and white polka dot dress.  It works, but I think I might see if I can find a white flower.

So the next time you see some fun flowers, pick up a few, and make some DIY flower pins!  The plain clothes in your closet will thank you and you will love how cute you feel.

What is your favorite accessory to wear – flowers, pins, scarves, jewelry?  Or all of the above? Winking smile

      you are welcome! I need to get some for some hairclips too – maybe some smaller ones for the niece that wears 2 hairclips.

    Christina,

    For the Black polka dot shirt, try a red flower or a turquoise one. Lately, I have been contrasting my accessories and have found it to be lots of fun.
