Remember the little wire nest napkin rings I made for my Easter table here.
Well, they were just too cute to put into a drawer and wait for next spring to come out again, so I made one into a pin.
I started out with some tulle (left over from my wedding years ago, oh the happy memories), the nest and ribbon (see how I made them here), and some pins.
I cut out a long strip of tulle and folded it over to create two layers. Then I gathered it on one side to make a rosette shape, I think it’s a called a yo-yo.
I ran the satin ribbon through the pin and tied it, and sewed that to the yo-yo. Next, I sewed the pin closure onto the back.
Then, like all good bloggers, I walked around the garden for a nest pin photo shoot!
Here it is in the rocks.
In the grass.
And my fav. in the flowers.
Let just hope it looks this good on a sweater!
And…Happy Mother’s Day weekend, I hope your loved ones are making life a party for you, at least this weekend!
