Hijab Accessory: Flower Pins

Jana over at Hijab Style recently posted about flower pins as a hijab accessory. I DO really love this Turkish bridal style, but, well, it's not hijab, it's a headscarf. But looking at it, I was thinking, I coul TOTALLY ROCK that style with a niqab. I sometimes wear my flip niqab the side. It blows that way anyway since I am almost always losing my top stick pin by the end of the day (to the hazard of people everywhere---sorry Boxie's Mom for the pins I left in your airmcahir and habibi for the crystal encrusted hijab pin that impaled your fancy new sneaks). Anyways, I'd just sort of flip the niqab a little to the side and then slide a brooch or flower pin in as if I was wearing it at my ear. Makes a black niqab less scary to non-muslims who might not know whether I am a funeral-goer or not (cuz I love my black abayas and shaylas and niqabs). To me, it is very flamenco.

Is "habibi" husband?

Now, where did you find those flower pins?? I have searched high and low for flower pins that don't look dreadfully gaudy ~ but to no avail!

I like the idea of the flowers making it a wee bit less scary...

They are easy to make if you are crafty. Buy some silk flowers from Joanne's or Michael's, grab a glue gun and a safety pin and glue the head portion to the back of the flower so that its vertical. Let dry and thats it!.

This has inspired be to start wear mine again although i may pin it in the back instead
