These are the brooches I used in the outfits above. Some vintage and some modern. They can be fun to collect over the years and use them throughout the season. Most of mine are snowmen and trees. My sister collects them as well. If you don't want them on your outfit, they also work well on coat or jacket lapels during the winter months. Adding a bit of sparkle or cheer to what can be a bleery time of the year.
Sometimes you will find that these large pins are too heavy for the sweater you want to pin it on. Be sure to pin through more than one layer. I have pinned into my bra strap to anchor a heavy pin. The strap isn't going anywhere, so it keeps the pin from pulling down on the sweater or scarf.
So, pin one on!
