Make It: Flirty Flower Pin

Make It: Flirty Flower Pin

This flirty flower pin can whipped up in just a few minutes. To coat and stiffen the fabric, I used Mod Podge prior to cutting the shapes. To add sparkle and glitter to the fabric I used the new Hologram Gold Glitter Mod Podge.

Mod Podge Paper - Matte
Mod Podge Glitter - Hologram Gold
Foam Paintbrush
10” x 10” piece of cotton fabric – patterned
10” x 10” piece of cotton fabric – polka dot
Scrap of tulle
Large silk flower
Wax paper
Large shank button
Needle and thread
Hot glue
Pin back
Tiny scrap of felt

1. Iron the fabrics if needed. Place the patterned fabric on a piece of wax paper. Using a foam brush coat the right side with a thin layer of matte Mod Podge. Place the polka dot fabric onto wax paper and using a foam brush coat with gold glitter Mod Podge. Allow to dry 1 hour.

2. Peel the dry fabrics from the wax paper and cut into 3 or 4 rough circle shapes. The circles should be approximately the size of your silk flower. Cut the circles into random flower shapes; spiked, round and daisy. Cut the tulle into circles approximately the size of the silk flower.

3. Separate the petals of the flower and discard the plastic stem.

4. Layer the petals of the silk flower, tulle and Mod Podged petals together. Hand sew together in the center. Sew a button in the center. Hot glue a pin back to the back. Add a small piece of felt across the pin back base to cover your glue marks.
