Are these pins not the cutest things ever?? Pins are one of the most versatile crafts you can make to spruce up any outfit (and we're not talking about your Grandmother's pins!).
We were walking in the street the other day, and we saw the cutest flats in a store window with twine flower embellishments. It was literally calling our name...until we saw the price tag. The other con that came with the flats was how the embellishment could get dirty in a few wears. Who wants to be walking around with worn out embellishments? Our solution was to create these removable pins that you can stick onto your existing flats. And we're happy to say that it looks just as good as the ones we saw in the store:)
Here's the materials we used to make it. We have a ball of thinner twine, glue, glitter, beads, a Gelatos®, and Texture Luxe Gems™. Sounds simple, right? Let's get started!
Create a simple loop, and tie the end. Repeat the process for all the other loops. Make sure to move the loops around as you go so you get a flower. The third picture is how it should like like once you've completed a full circle. Don't worry about getting this process perfect! The next step should cover up all the flaws.
Cut 3in pieces of twine, and twist the ends together to form a petal. Glue these onto the top of the finished flower.
Here's what it looks like when you're finished with the second layer.
To create the center, cut out a 1in paper circle, color it with Gelatos, and glue it onto the center of the flower. Then fill in the center with Texture Gems Ice, and carefully place the beads around the outer edge.
Fill in the center of the flower with some glitter and let it dry. Once you're done, you can go ahead and glue a clip onto it!
The possibilities for wearing this pin is endless- you can clip it onto your scarf, or you can just wear it as a pin. Hope you enjoyed this post! We'll be sharing one more tomorrow so don't forget to stop by!
