For this craft, all you will need is:
  1. Plastic flowers (You can get this at any craft store)
  2. Brooch clips and/or Hair Clippies (You can find this at any craft store)
  3. Scissors
  4. Needle and thread (Or a glue gun would probably work as well)

Here are the steps to completing this craft:

1. Sew Brooch clips to flower: I'm no sewing expert, but sewing these brooch clips to plastic flowers was easy peasy. Just sew through the circles and the back of the flower to make sure the clip is secure.

2. Optional - Glue Hair clip to flower: A second option is to use a glue gun to attach a Hair clip to the back of the flower.

Done!

Yup, this was a 2 step tutorial!

I personally attach both hair clips and brooch clips to my flowers so that they can serve a double purpose! Here are a couple of the many ways in which you can use these great accessories:

1. Clutter several brooches together to add pizazz to your plain blazer!
