Anthropologie Knock Off Bobby Pins Tutorial

Anthropologie Knock Off
Vintage Yo Yo Bobby Pins
{As seen on the fabulous Kojo Designs}

I originally posted this fun tutorial on Kojo Designs a while back.  During my moving interim, I thought I would revisit it with y'all.

If you've ever seen any of my tutorials,
then you know I love me a good knock off.
And naturally, one of my favorite sites to get ideas is Anthropologie.
I stumbled upon these beauties, and knew I wanted to try my own version.

And now, for my version:

In my family, we have a Yo Yo quilt that has been passed down for 4 generations.  It is made with vintage fabric, and it makes my heart swoon.  The only problem, it has begun to tatter and fall apart. And the girls in our family have been trying to find alternate uses for the classic yo yo's.  So I very carefully used a seam ripper to remove a handful of yo yo's from the outer edge of my blanket--to use on this vintage project.

To make your own yo yo's, see this tutorial.

  • Fabric Yo Yo's
  • Bobby Pin blanks {available in jewelry section at Joann's}
  • Buttons and/or scrap booking embellishments
  • Ribbon, tulle or any other extras you like
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun and glue

Lay out all your Yo Yo's and start gettin' creative as you make your button/yo yo combinations.

Grab your bobby pin base and add a drop of hot glue.

Place on the backside of a yo yo. Allow to cool.

Flip over and apply a drop of glue to the center of the front of your yo yo. Then place your button on top. Allow to cool.

Yep, it's really that easy.

I hope you enjoyed the world's easiest knock off project!
Happy Crafting!

My goodness, what a cute idea! You are so pretty, have such a pretty family, and a beautiful blog! I love reading it daily! Where can I buy the fabric yo yos so I can try the project?

I want vintage yo-yos! Cuuute! They are much cuter than anthros, honestly. I'm going to use vintage fabric to make mine and iron them down so they look like vintage yo-yos! Yay! :)

I was so confused at first because I thought you made the ones in the first photo and the 2nd photo was Anthro, but in reverse? Yours are SO much better than theirs! Way to go Miss Momma!!!
