DIY: rosette and pom pom push pins

I spotted some really pretty ceramic flower pins at Anthropologie and wanted to make some of my own (mostly because they were a little too pricey for me).  They are incredibly easy to make and I even threw in some gold pom poms for some added sparkle and fun. 

Here's what you'll need:
- Rosette embellishments (I got mine at Michaels - $3.99 for a 16-pack)
- Pom Poms (also Michaels - $1.69 for a 15-pack)
- Thumbtacks and pushpins
- Superglue

This is as complicated as it gets - dab some glue on the top of the thumbtack/pushpin and pop the rosette/pom pom on top.  I like the look of the flat thumbtacks, but the pushpins are great for anything you need to hang (keys, jewelry, etc.).  Let them dry for a few minutes and you are all set!

These also make really cute stocking stuffers - pin a few on a piece of decorated cardboard and package it up.  Enjoy!
