Minnie's Patriotic Pin

Minnie's Patriotic Pin

Here she goes again -- starting a new fashion trend with polka dots! Made from red and white buttons and a miniature blue polka-dot bow, this Minnie-inspired, Fourth of July holiday accessory is fun to wear pinned on a T-shirt, purse, baseball cap, or sun visor.

You'll need:

  • Large red button for the head (the one shown here is about 1.5 inches in diameter)
  • Medium-size white button for the face (1/4 to 1/2 inch smaller than the large button)
  • 2 smaller red buttons for ears (about 3/4 inch smaller than the large button)
  • Extra smaller red or white button (similar in size to the ear buttons)
  • Hot glue gun
  • 3/4-inch metal bar pin (found in the jewelry section of the craft store)
  • Thin blue or blue polka-dot ribbon
  • Piece of embroidery floss or string
Instructions:

1. Arrange the ear buttons and the extra button on a flat surface as shown.

2. Hot-glue the head button in place atop the three buttons already in place, overlapping the ears a bit as shown.

3. Glue the medium-size face button in place atop the head.

4. Create a miniature bow by cutting a 2.75-inch length of ribbon. Fold the ends of the ribbon back so that they overlap and form a 1-inch bow.

5. Tie the bow tightly in the center with a piece of embroidery floss or string. Trim the ends of the floss or string short.

6. Hot-glue the bow in place at the base of one ear.

7. Flip the pin over and hot-glue a pin back to the center button, as shown, and your Minnie pin is ready to wear.
