D-I-Y: Brooch it!

Besides pinning it on the tudung, brooches can be used for many different things like spicing up a plain-colored bag. Make your own brooch. It’s really simple.

*Difficulty Level: Easy

1. Things you need:

things-u-need

Glue gun, pin, item of your choice u wish to make into a brooch.

Compared to the usual superglue, a glue gun needs to be plugged into an electric socket. It contains transparent kind of glue in wax form (see inside glue gun) which will melt when plugged, just press the orange button and glue away. A note of caution tho: the glue strip is hot when it’s in liquid form so u gotta be careful of your hands when handling it.

2. Choose the size of the pin according to your brooch item. Pins come in many different sizes.

3. Place the pin on the back of the brooch – for this red sparling heart, the back is made of felt so it’s soft and squishy- and glue your pin to the surface.
