I used some red and green ribbon to make a little flower to attach to the end of a bobby pin to make it more interesting.



I have no idea exactly how I made the shape, I just sat there with a needle and thread doing tiny stitches in different directions trying to make it look floral so if I wanted to do it again there are two things I would change 1) write or draw instructions for myself and 2) use a more burgundy and less bright red ribbon (it may be tiny but in the sun it's so brightly noticeable it's less like I'm wearing the flower and more like the flower is wearing me).

So lessons learned and pretty flower bobby pin made!

I like it being bright red, but then I've very dark hair, so a burgundy one would be almost invisible.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
