I decided to play around with flowers leftover from my wreath project and make my own. It was actually the easiest of craft projects, only requiring:
- Hot glue gun
- Artificial flowers
- Pin backs (sold along with jewelry-making supplies)
- Wire cutters
Step One: Trim off the stem.
Make sure you cut close to the base of the flower - you want a flat surface to work on. Sometimes the stem actually holds the flower elements together, but you can always use hot glue to reconnect the pieces.
Step Two: Chase your cat and retrieve stem pieces that were stolen for playthings.
Step Three: Hot glue the pin back to the flower. Be careful. It's not called "hot glue" for nothing!
Step Four: Trim a tiny piece of felt to cover the pin back. It just makes it prettier. You could also use a piece of leaf or a flower petal. Your choice.
