Mother's Day: Flower Pins

What mom doesn't love flowers on Mother's Day?  There are probably a few out there, but I always welcome flowers in May.  Unfortunately, I don't have great luck with keeping them alive.  My flowers, even potted, have a limited life span.

Give a bloom to your mom this Mother's day that will last though out the month and beyond.  A simple flower brooch or pin will bring life to a bag, scarf, sweater, or lapel.

I purchased all of my supplies from The Ribbon Retreat (flowers, pins), though this is not a sponsored post.  You could easily make your own fabric flower, and glue it to a pin, but this was a simple one step process. Turn on glue gun.  Add a small dot to the back of the felt circle, and adhere the pin.  Done and done.

Simple flower bloom to last all year long.

My pins are for sale locally at the Blackfoot Gift Bazaar, and used as scarf pins, a fun way to wear your shirred scarf (also for sale at the gift bazaar). Since these take no time at all to make, why don't you spend a few more minutes and make mom a nice sheer shirred scarf to accompany her pin, or even a handmade bag.  Perfect for the season.
