Valentine's Day is coming up, and I decided to make twisted flower brooches, pins and bib necklaces for my favorite ladies.
It is fun thinking about each person's style and what accessory they would most use. Then I have to think about what to add or subtract to make it fit their personality.
Carter's Pre-K teacher, Mrs. Macaluso, is young and trendy. She has a fun, lighthearted way of dressing, often with fun clips in her hair. Her style is a mostly trendy, with a little edge to it now and then. Here she is with Carter on his first day of school.
Of course, such style screamed for a zipper flower--soft and sweet with a little hardware in there to make it fun. Since she wears hair clips, I decided to hot glue my flowers to an alligator clip.
She can wear it down low in her hair like so: (I pulled my hair back really quickly and took a picture with one hand, so forgive my odd angles and less than perfect hair.)
She can wear it clipping her hair back up high:
She can wear it on a t-shirt:
She can clip it on a purse or bag for a little punch:
I have cute little black tins I got at Michael's for 1.99 about a month ago. As I finish my other projects, I'll post them and show you how I wrap them up in the tins.
Have fun creating your Valentine's gifts! I am having so much fun looking at everyone's decorations and crafts!
