Can you believe it is already February? This year is flying by! Last year I made these awesome little pins for my boyfriends band, a cute little freebie to give away to people that came to the valentine’s day show. They were such a hit I decided to share them with you.
They would be fun for a class project or a fun way to show your valentine’s day spirit at work.
The theme of last years show was “Wear your heart on your sleeve” so these little pins were fantastic.
You only need a few supplies:
- Felt Hearts
- A glue gun and glue sticks
- Extra felt (can be the same or different than the hearts)
- Small safety pins
Felt Hearts by Creatology, bought at Michaels Crafts.
The felt hearts can also be made with plain felt, I just chose to use these pre-made hearts because they have writing on them like the little candies, and they were really inexpensive.
To make the pins:
Cut up the extra felt piece into small squares. You want to make the square smaller than the heart and small enough to fit inside the small safety pin.
Use the glue gun to make a small dot of glue, place an open safety pin down into the glue face up.
Add another dot of glue over the safety pin, add a small square and press lightly. The open part of the safety pin should be facing you. As seen below…
Ta-Da! Cute lil’ valentine’s day pins!
Quick and easy!
These things are so easy to make! You should have no problem pumping out a bunch for a party favors or fun giveaways.
