After my "A" Initial Brooch by Markus Lupfer arrived I realized that recreating similar pieces would make for the perfect Look for Less/D.I.Y post...
The Markus Lupfer version retails for $20 each. Total cost for the two D.I.Y under $8 at Hobby Lobby.
Letters: .99 and $1.99
*I also used the 40% off one item coupon found on the Hobby Lobby iPhone app to receive 40% off my most expensive item (pins/$3.99 ended up costing about $2.39)
