Remember the felt holiday wreath I was inspired to make last week, with the cute little sparkly felt poinsettia?
Well, a certain, awesome bloggy friend gchatted me one evening last week, to let me know she had been inspired by my post to make her own miniature felt poinsettias!
And in turn, I was inspired to make mini poinsettias too! Seriously guys, these are so cute and itty bitty. The thought of miniature versions of just about anything make me giddy! But as soon as I realized the possibilities, thanks to Hannah, I just knew I had to make some holiday accessories!
Following the same instructions as last week, but in a much more scaled down way, I quickly made three adorably mini poinsettias.
The first one, I hot glued to an old random (and slightly tarnished) silver ring I found in my jewelry box.
Instant holiday ring!
For the other two mini poinsettias, before I glued the top leaves on, I made two little snips with scissors in the middle of the bottom leaf, by folding it in half.
Then I could thread bobby pins through the holes, to look like this (top on the left, bottom of the poinsettia on the right):
And then I had two mini poinsettia hair clips!
They are so freakin' cute! I've been wearing my new holiday accessories around all weekend :)
(kindly excuse my bare minimum mascara-only eye makeup!)
There are so many more things I can think to attach mini felt poinsettias to....I might even make some more to use instead of bows on presents!
Have you ever been inspired by someone eles's inspiration? And does miniature versions of things make you giddy too?
