Pin Board Wreath

I started to make a felt flower wreath last year but then the blog's tutorial I was following was deleted and I couldn't find one I liked as much. It was sort of forgotten about until I was having a spring clean and found some flower broaches which worked well with the colour of the wool and I pinned them on. The blue flower was actually on my sixth form prom dress.

When I was a teenager I always had a pin board up in my bedroom for photos and memories like gig tickets. I probably got rid of it about 3 or 4 years ago as it didn't suit the style of bedroom I have now.

At the moment I have the flower broaches, a bit of lucky lace that my cousin gave me for my 21st, my Hunger Games cinema ticket and a Tatty Divine broach they gave me when I was working one of their workshops. I also have my Cath Kidston mushroom to hold the pins.

It's so simple but I love how it looks. It brings a bit of personality to the otherwise blank wall. I'm hoping to hang a chalkboard picture frame in the space next to this at some point.

Have you done any crafty DIY's recently?

    1. I don't have the nav bar at the top of the page but the google friend connect follow button should be in the sidebar above the blog post archive?
