Happens far too often for me.
there are entire newspaper articles on how to secure those things. 7 ways: https://nationalpost...-day-poppy-tips
1. THE ERASER
This has been my tried and true method to keeping my poppy on ever since I was a kid.
Either tear or cut off a bit of an eraser, push the pin through your coat then add the eraser bit to the end, and voila.
2. DUCT TAPE
There are two ways you could try using tape.
The first is to push your poppy through your coat and tape the pin down, covering the entire needle.
The second is to push the pin through, then wrap tape around the needle, preventing it from falling out.
3. SAFETY PIN
Here you just pull the pin out entirely and replace it with a safety pin, like so. Be careful not to prick your fingers.
4. LAPEL PIN
The fourth way to keep your poppy on is probably the most patriotic, and in my opinion, creative.
Remove the needle and push through a Canadian flag pin. Then take the back and clasp it down, securing the poppy in place.
5. BEND THE PIN
First push the pin through your jacket. Then using a pair of pliers, carefully bend the needle so that it won’t easily slip out.
6. WEAVE THE PIN
The sixth tip to try is weaving it through your coat material, like so.
7. BUY A BUNCH
And the final tip? Buy a bunch.
