Bobby Pin Flowers

I am forever looking for something to tie up my hair when I get in the kitchen. To remedy this I made some cute bobby pin flowers and planted them in miniature flowers pots.   I set them on the ledge to my homemade recipe holder, so that when I get into the kitchen my bobby pins are handy.

Took a plain bobby pin and hot glued a flower bud  had on hand.  Did the same with several bobby pins.

Repeated the same, hot glue to another flower.

Took a tiney terra cotta planter, filled it with moss and a couple of leaves and planted my bobby pins.

A full pot of the white flowers.

A full pot of the red flowers.

And here they are sitting pretty on the shelf of my homemade magnetic recipe holder.
