FUNKY FLOWER PIN

Bright Green is definitely my “signature” color. I love to decorate with it, wear it and craft with it, so my color selection for this Funky Flower Pin project was a no brainer! Just in time for Spring this pin can be a fun addition to any outfit. Change up the colors to create your signature look!

Place your button on a piece of paper and trace around it. Then draw a circle ¼” larger and another circle ¼” larger. Then draw a flower. Rough cut your pattern and tape it to the Neon Green Felt, cut out your flower with straight scissors. Repeat with the Peacock Felt and a straight cut circle, then the Bright Lilac Felt and a pinked cut circle. Thread assorted beads on to each head pin, making one longer than the other. Using needle nose pliers, make a loop in the open end of each head pin and trim off the excess with wire cutters.
