A Chirstmas Pin~2010

Hello Everyone,
Are you having a great time preparing for a wonderful week of parties?
I wanted to repost this tutorial on
How to make a Christmas Pinfrom puzzle pieces.

How to Make a Christmas Wreath Pin "2010"


Last year I was shopping with my sister at Christmas time and she was wearing a darling wreath pin.  A friend had made it for her out of small puzzle pieces.  I was amazed and I had to have one. Well, while at a yard sale this year I found two bags of small puzzle pieces for .10 cents.  Yes.  You guessed it.  There was the material for my wreath pin.

I took the puzzle pieces and made a round circle and glued them together with Aleene's Tacky Glue.  My granddaughter is making some wreath pins as Christmas gifts for her teachers and friends. So we are doing this project together.  I just love the girls to be interested in creative activities.  Especially with me.

I found 3/4 inch bar pins at Jo Ann's fabric store and glued one on the back of the wreath .

While making Christmas cards I bought this marvelous glitter.  "Stickles" for paper crafting.  It's glue and glitter combined.  Doesn't fall off.  I put 'Star Dust' on my pin.


Added embellishments and one Christmas pin finished!!!

I love it.

I'm planning to make more pins in a couple of days.  They are so easy and cute on a jacket.  Just a little bit of Christmas!

Thanks Chari for having Sunday Favorites.
 It's fun to "re-run" a favorite blog post.  Especially at Christmas time when we all need a few new ideas.
I'm also joining the wonderful blog parties of Susan and Mary.
