Craft a Halloween Pumpkin Pin Corsage
by Jane Lake and Twila Lenoir
This “Mums” pumpkin pin is super duper easy to make from silk flowers – and wouldn’t this be a nice Halloween corsage for the teacher!
What you will need:
- A silk chrysanthemum flower(a big orange one)
- Black felt
- 2 leaves from the mum
- Pin back
Cut the silk mum off the stem. Make three triangles out of the felt. Glue two triangles going up for the eyes and the other triangle going down for the nose.
Cut a rick rack shape for the mouth, and glue down.
On the back of the pumpkin, glue two leaves joining together and sticking out of the sides of the pumpkin. Glue on the pin back.
These are so colorful; they look wonderful on a fall coat. They also make perfect teacher gifts too.
