Hi everyone! Once upon a time I went to a parade with my family. The people in the parade were throwing candy to everyone, I saved all of the non-ripped wrappers for DIYs. As I was looking through YouTube for candy wrapper DIYs I came across this:
So I thought it would be a perfict DIY because it’s spring and close to Earth Day. I know the DIY said to use Starburst wrappers, I didn’t have those, so I used what I had on hand. But it wasn’t enough 😦
I tried again with gum wrappers. For the center, I couldn’t find a button that I liked, so I used a single earring (I lost the match) instead, and it turned out cuter (in my opinion).
Now I couldn’t decide whether to make it a brooch or a hair clip. So, I simply glued a piece of felt to the back of the flower, glued on a hair clip, added on a safety-pin and added some more felt on top of it to reenforce it. 2 birds 1 stone.
This is SO cute and I am definitely going to make more. I think it is a cool way to recycle and make a nice accessory. You can also add old or broken pieces of jewelery to the center of the flower like I did.
This is Megisha signing off… For now ( Mwa ha ha)
