I used to cover stains on my blazer with a DIY brooch.

What a great way to up cycle t-shirt material, and the use of felt to give some great stability! I could see adding a rhinestone glued to a few of the petals, or even a glittered sprig would be pretty. Add a barrette pin in the back, and this would be so,cute worn in the hair in addition to being a lapel pin! Fun and easy to make, would be a great school or Girl Scout project!
