Okay, girls, if I catch any of you actually buying one of these for more than a few dollars, I will hunt you down and force you to wear 80's stirrup pants with Birkenstock sandals! ; ) There is no need to pay lots of money for these trendy blossoms. You may have seen Mrs. Matthew Broderick wearing one on her HBO show, or you've probably seen them at Old Navy, Express, and other trendy mall shops. But, don't buy them! They're so easy to make, and so versatile, too. You can pin them on the straps of your tank tops, on to jacket lapels, on your purse, on the toes of your sandals even! Make them in bunches! Give 'em to your friends, your mom, anyone! Go Spring-Crazy!!!
how to make one:
materials: one fabric flower a blank pin back some hot glue
You can get all these materials in one place: your local craft store. ; ) Grab some pretty flowers for just a few cents a piece. They're usually about 50 cents to $1.00 a piece. Then get yourself some craft pinbacks. You can usually find a bag of 10 or so for about $1.29. Then, just take your hot glue gun and glue the flower on the pin. Voila. Yes, it's that easy, and that cheap! ; )
You can also make some hair pins, as seen on the gorgeous Ms. Ryder here, by gluing the darn flower to a hairclip. Gee, how much do you think these girls paid for their accessories, anyway?!?!
