Spring is just around the corner and we are getting really excited about the pastels and florals that spring up in fashion this time of year. We love to adorn blazers and dresses with pastel flower pins.
They add a perfect floral touch to virtually any outfit. This tutorial shows you how to make a simple floral pin (bonus! No sewing required!)
- 1/8 yard of pastel fabric (I recommend using a cotton)
- Piece of neutral felt
- Pack of broach pins
- Glue gun
- One large and one small pedal piece cut out
Fold your fabric and cut out several large and small pedals (around 10-15 each)
Cut a small slit in each pedal
Cut a circle out of the felt about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Place a small amount of glue on the left side of the slit and a dab onto the felt.
Cross the right side over the left (this is what makes it stand up a bit like a real pedal) and press onto the side of the felt piece
Do the same with four others and create your first layer of pedals as shown.
Continue adding more layers until you're satisfied with the look
Cut a small piece of felt and glue it into the center.
Glue the pin onto the back of the bottom felt circle. You can also glue a clip if you're rather us it as a hairclip!
