Les Miserables French Revolution Pins

Christina Stewart
Today I am SUPER excited to share a video created by my 16-year old daughter, Christina. She is a great crafter and she wanted to share with you a project she has been making for her friends.

A couple of things you need to know about the video…she (and our whole family actually) are HUGE and I mean H U G E Les Miserables fans. From the stage production to the hit movie, we love all things Les Miz!  My girls made sure we bought tickets to the very first showing on Christmas morning. They were more excited about seeing Les Miz than they were in Christmas presents (could have saved their dad and I a fortune).

In the movie, the students of the French Revolution are all wearing these red/white/blue pins and Christina really wanted to make one. Well, you know how it goes… she made one, wore it to school, and before you know it, everyone wanted one. If you have a Les Miz fan in your house, you will love her video on how to create these pins for yourself and show your support for the movie of the year. EVEN IF YOU’RE NOT A FAN OF THE MOVIE, this video is just FUN!  She did an amazing job on it!! I think she needs to make more videos of other crafts for teenagers, don’t you?

Leave Christina a comment if you would like her to make more videos!  🙂

  2. She sounds just like her momma! Great video! I think she should do teen videos here. I would watch, although I am far fro being a teen! Great Job and very entertaining!

    I of course am biased because I adore Christina and thing she does no wrong 😉 However, honestly Christina you did a great job, just the right amount of funny to hold my interest and very understandable. Can’t wait to see what you do next.

    What a wonderful job you did on the video I’m sure you will be making many more. I like the color of your nail polish.

    Christina, you did a fantastic job on your first video! I definitely would like to see more from you. I just cracked up when you explained that your ribbon pin coming apart in battle would break your concentration……what a hoot!

  13. Betty Hondronastas says:

    Excellent video! Hoping to see more! Great job.

  14. Julia says:

    Really cool Christina. I agree with mom, you should do more videos. You go girl.

    • Chris says:

      I hadn’t heard of that movie (guess I don’t get out much). Christina is a chip off her mom’s block! Thanks for the entertainment. For sure more videos but don’t take up your mom’s time.

      • Connie says:

        Oh Chris, this movie is amazing! It’s a beautiful story of forgiveness, mercy, love, courage, and hope. Sounds hokey, but it is the best movie I have ever seen! I hope you get a chance to go see on the big screen because it’s such an epic movie that it really plays best on that big screen. Bring tissues – not just one but several. It’s SO moving!!

  15. Christy says:

    Terrific video Christina! Obviously the apple does not fall far from the tree! Keep making those videos and thanks for this one!

  16. K. deCordova says:

    Christina, you are a true talent. Just the right blend of educational and entertaining content in this video. You obviously had done your homework. Keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing more of your video projects.

  17. Judi says:

    A+++ delightful! What a fun combo – you & your Mom:)

  18. Alivic says:

    What a hoot!

  19. Hope says:

    This was super super helpful for the Les Miserables party I am planning! Also was super fun. 🙂 Thank you!

  20. Hollie Townsend says:

    what kind of ribbon is this? Grosgrain? Also can you use just regular fabric glue? thanks great video!

    • Connie says:

      Hollie, it is a grosgrain ribbon that is red, white, and blue. It can be found at most craft stores. As far as fabric glue…well, I couldn’t honestly tell you. I’ve never used it and I don’t know if it will hold the pin on the back. You could always try it because this project is really inexpensive to make. If it doesn’t work, you’re not out a lot.

  21. Nimrodel says:

    Thanks for doing this. I had already made an attempt at a revolution pin, but failed miserably. Instead of the ribbon, I took my old pin apart and put it back together the way you showed. It worked quite well.

  22. Amber Callaghan says:

    This is so awesome! I am a total Les Misérables fan (I’ve read the book several times, the first when I was twelve, and I love the musical and movie as well!) and a lot of my friends are fans too. I made these for them and they absolutely loved them!

    I laughed so hard about your rosette getting ondone on the barricade and getting shot…
