New Wool Flower Pins

I have been wanting to make some of the flowers I have seen with 9 circles (one for the base, and the other eight folded in quarters and stuck on top of the base).  I used wool felt from recycled wool sweaters and vintage buttons.

100_0704This glass button is Czech and I have about a dozen of them waiting for the perfect project.

100_0707I found two of these rhinestone buttons on a bridal veil (which I bought along with the gown for $5—classic 70s style).  I thought they looked great on this dark purple plaid flower.

100_0715I haven’t found the perfect button for these two flowers.  I want a small black rhinestone button for the dark grey and camel flower and not sure what would look the best with the blue plaid flower.

100_0713I put one of these flowers in spring colors on my bright spring wreath too!

Those felt pins are awesome. I'd love if you would stop back and re-enter the party...I messed up originally and had a basic party rather than a thumbnail. Thanks.
