Lace Flower Hair Pin Tutorial

How are you all today?  It's gloomy, cold and wet outside, but I'm determined not to let it affect my mood!
I've been trying to stay productive and that includes coming up with a tutorial for this oh so easy and cute lace flower hairpin. The fun thing is, it's pretty much free!

Here's what you need:
 5 minutes
A short strand of lace-6 inches should be good
A bobby pin
A small scrap of fleece
Glue gun

Cut a fleece circle just a tad bigger than a quarter.
Cut a small square of fleece as well for the back of the pin. 
  Tie a knot at the end of the lace.  If there's a tail, cut it off.

 Pinch the knot and begin to twist the lace while turning the flower in your hand.
Place a dab of hot glue on the round fleece.  Try to use the nose of it to spread it around a bit.
Then, place your flower onto the fleece. There may be some room for more lace.  Put a little bit of glue along the raw edge and twist the lace around until it's filled in.  Cut off the tail.
Place the little square inside the end of the bobby pin.  The bumpy edge should face up.
Place a dab of glue on the lower half of the fleece backing of the flower.  Press the bobby pin onto the glue.  

 I also made a pin with the same method.  I wanted the lace to show so I twisted the lace more loosely than I did with the hairpins.  I glued three pearl buttons to the center.  Cute for Easter.   Would make a cute gift set, don't you think???

 You can do the same thing with any fabric and get a cute rosette!
