Today’s second project is another submission, and it provides a very nice contrast to our first project: Nick’s wood knife rack is rough and rugged, while this versatile flower pin DIY from Portland, Oregon-based florist Anna Mara is soft, pretty and feminine. I love the idea of taking a big, fresh bloom and using it as an accessory, especially on a bag or clutch. This project would be perfect for weddings, parties or any day you need an extra dose of prettiness. Thanks so much for sharing, Anna! — Kate

I am excited to re-introduce the corsage as a sweet flower pin accessory. You can make these sweet pins with almost any bloom that’s hearty enough. I think it looks so cute attached to a skinny belt, a sweet clutch, or a blazer. — Anna
- white football mum (or any flower you choose)
- wire cutters
1. Cut stem about an inch from the head of the bloom.
