Some Fun and Easy Recycled Flower Brooches/Barrettes

June 6, 2010

Need to refresh your wardrobe with something simple and fun? Well, you have come to right place then!

These are some super easy projects that you can make very quickly! I did crochet a few leaves for the “Sunset Rose”. But these are all hand sewn. There are loads of tutorials on You Tube for how to make Fabric or ribbon flowers, so why not try it with DGY’s Sari Ribbon Yarn or you can mix it up and use any of the yarns with the sari ribbon for a totally unique effect.



Once, I had my flowers sewn, I used a hot glue gun to attach brooch pins or barrette clasps to the backs. I can put these on my hand bags/purses, hats, wear as a Brooch or even in my hair.

Happy Crafting!!!

Ok, so I took a few more pics……This is Chriss from Crochet Corner, I accidentally posted thishere instead of in my corner, guess Nicole decided to let me out for a while!!  LOL!
