Need a little splash for your outfit during the February Holidays? This year Mardi Gras falls 2 days before Valentine's Day, so this is a crafty two-fer! Make these crafty boutineers to wear and you're set for Mardi Gras and Valentine's Day!
Use up some remnant supplies like ribbon, lace, scrap fabric, trims, and baubles to make the Valentine's Day pin. You will also need some pinbacks, felt, needle, thread, and hot glue.
To sew the ruffle base of the Mardi Gras and Valentine's Day pins, cut a piece of fabric that is 12 inches long by 5 inches wide. It doesn't have to be exact. Fold the fabric long-ways, right sides (patterned sides) facing each other. Sew along the side of the fabric to create a tube shape.
Flip the ruffle over and add ribbon, lace, and baubles with hot glue. I used painted wooden hearts for the Valentine bountineer. Glue a pinback to a felt circle and then attach this to the back of your pin with hot glue to finish your boutineer!
For the Mardi Gras boutineer, of course I had to use beads, but I also added some tulle and some bells for fun!
