I first saw them on Pinterest, and the concept seemed simple enough. I changed them up just a little, but I wanted to share because I thought they turned out pretty well! I'm not sure what to do with them, as I'm not into brooches (they have no backing on them as of yet). Mine aren't quite as smooth as the tutorial because I used cheap craft felt from Michael's that I had sitting around. They were just a project to keep myself entertained  Grin


EDIT!: Latest attempt! Changed it up quite a bit. Took a lot longer, but totally worth the effort!




And because I like Instagram  Grin

Very cute, yours are cute and I love when people "use what they have" instead of going and buying everything, the world needs more people like that. Keep on crafting.

They look really nice and I'd suggest sewing them onto a string and hanging them against a wall (so you only see the correct side) as a type of banner. Alternatively, they can be laid on a table as a decoration, particularly when integrated with other items (e.g. candlesticks, maybe some candy).

 Very nice.  They would also look good in a bouquet.

Those are some pretty good ideas, thanks!

sew them  onto a winter hat, the ends of a winter scarf, or glue them on to a pin and pin to a winter coat.  If you do some in pastels then you can pin them to your spring jacket.  You could make them out of old book pages or news paper or paper bags and spray paint them and put them into a bowl for a center piece.  Use old books for a vintage feel or tea stain the paper.

Try duct tape, bet they float, then you could do a a floating center piece!

For Christmas you could do them in paper and spray paint, add glitter and a loop on the back then hang them on the tree like snow flakes
