I love this DIY How to make a brooch pin. With so many color choices of ric-rac available at almost any craft store the possibilities are endless to create this adorable ric-rac flower! You could easily hot glue a brooch pin (as shown), substitute a hair clip or even just add a few of these cute flowers to the top of a gift.
How to make a brooch pin:
ric rac color of your choice
small piece of felt
pin back or hair clip (optional)
Step 1: Cut 2 lengths of the ric rac to 28 inches
Step 2: With a dab of hot glue at one end glue the two pieces together. Make sure your two pieces mirror each other and are not going the same way.
Step 3: Begin overlapping one piece over another, interlocking the waves
Step 4: Once you wound the two pieces together, add another small dab of glue at the end to hold them together
Step 5: Begin with one end and begin rolling the ric rac. Add a very small dab of glue every inch or so to help hold the flower together.
Step 6: Once you have rolled most of the flower, glue the tail end to the back of the flower
Step 7: Glue a small square of felt to the back of the entire flower
Step 8: Carefully begin pulling the ric rac down to "open" the bloom
Step 9: Hot glue your pin back or hair clip to the flower and enjoy!
