DIY: Create your own Rosette Hair Pins!



I am sharing with you a little DIY today from my shop! You may wonder why I am sharing the secrets of my Rosette Pins when I sell them here, but I love to promote all things handmade if someone is willing to try it:) You can find different versions of rosettes around the web...These pictures are pretty 
self-explanatory...but I will explain just in case. Start from the top left!

What you need:
pre-cut fabric petals or any fabric circles
thread & needle
bobby pins

1) Fold your first petal in quarters, stitch on the bottom side of the folds. 
2) Place the stitching side down into the center of the second petal folded in half. Fold petal around the inner petal and stitch on the sides again.
3) Repeat this step, except add the bobby pin on the inside and stitch around it.
4.) On the last stitch, pull through the center of the rosette, cut the thread, and knot. This way, the know will not show on the outside....Make two or three and wear in your hair to welcome the spring!
