DIY: How to Make Girl Power Pins

I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. To me, doing heartfelt, romantic things shouldn’t require a holiday. Since I do love party styling and DIY, my love for the holiday has grown over the years. I will warn you, there is a feminist twist to my Valentine’s Day DIYs. Like these SUPER CUTE DIY Girl Power pins!

Initially, our idea was to share this DIY in February (pre-Valentine’s) but with the Women’s March taking place this weekend and so much history happening with women lately- we just couldn’t wait. We simply adore how these Girl Power pins came out and hope you love them, too.

My creative sidekick, Lee and I came up with these fun pins just in time for Galentine’s – I mean Valentine’s Day 😉 And they are so simple to make, you can do it too!

DIY: Girl Power Pins

What you will need: 

Red felt (you can do pink or black too!)

Letter Beads (we love metallics to create the look of a grill)

Glue gun

safety pins

How to Make It

Cut a heart shape or lip shape

Place the letter beads before gluing down to make sure they are centered- we used the phrases “GRL GANG” and “GRL PWR”

How to Girl Power Pin

Glue using a hot glue gun. Press down firmly (count to 5) for each letter
