coffee stained roses

Materials:

  • Old white tee shirt
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun/glue sticks
  • Cup of cold coffee

 

Instructions:

  1. First you’re going to want to cut a circle out of your tee shirt. 
  2. Cut into your circle and continue cutting around the circle until you have a spiral.  I'm showing you with felt so it's easier to see.  You can add a spiral edge to give your flower a more textured look if you'd like.

  3. Starting at the small end of your spiral, begin wrapping the felt around itself until a rose begins to form.  Secure the tail end with a little bit of hot glue.
     
  4. Place some hot glue on the bottom of your rose and cover it with a scrap piece of fabric.  Cut off the excess and there you have it!  An adorable felt rose!
     
  5. Once your roses are made, drop them in the coffee and let them sit for at least 2 minutes.
     
  6. Remove from the coffee and let dry completely.

You need to create outside the box. And try different things different things together. Last week I needed to make a flower girl dress for our 5 year old grandaughter. It was itchy,so I used her Grandads t shirt to line it

I think they look dirty. It would depress me to wear them.

How BIG of a circle should the tshirt circles be cut in? A general diameter number would be nice. Thanks!
