It seems like flower pins are all over the place…
They are a simple embellishment you can use on scarves, hats and bags to name a few…
I’m going to give you a quick DIY tutorial on how to make one of your own. No sewing necessary, just a hot glue gun and some material.
Here’s what you need:
- Some material, any will do…I used old T-shirts. You can use different colors or patterns, or all the same color, it’s up to you
- Hot glue gun
- A button
- a felt or burlap (any stiffer fabric will do) circle, 2″ in diameter
- a pin
First cut a template of a flower of a sheet of paper. Make it about 4 1/2″ in diameter…it doesn’t have to be exact. Then cut 8-10 flowers out of your material.
Next cut your circle out of felt or burlap, it just needs to be a stiffer fabric, as it will be the base of the pin.
Next start creating your “petals”. Fold each fabric flower in half, then in half again. Put a small dot of glue in the center to hold it closed.
When you have all your petals made start arranging them on your circle and using a small dot of glue, secure them. Continue with all the petals, overlapping around. You can use as many or as few as you would like…I used 10.
I added mine to a scarf…I love it
