1 Comments

If you've ever wondered how to make flowers from recycled materials, look no further to this Pretty Recycled Flower Pattern from Consumer Crafts, which will teach you how to diy fabric flowers in no time! Use them to embellish purses or headbands for a cool look or even wear it as a fun brooch.

Materials:

  • strips of cotton or silk fabric, 2-3 inches wide and at least 12-16 inches long
  • stiffened felt
  • Cuttlebug and Nestabilities dies- optional
  • scissors
  • Jewels (optional)
  • hot glue gun & sticks

Instructions:

  1. Cut some circles (or flower shapes) from your felt. I made a number of 2-4 inch shapes with my Cuttlebug because it’s so fast and easy, and the Nestabilities cut the stiffened felt beautifully. I like the stiff felt because it makes such a nice base for your flowers!
     
  2. Start by gluing your jewel or rhinestone into the center of your felt circle. (I think these ones by Darice are amazing!) Next, trim the end of your fabric strip at an angle.
     
  3. Next, place a dab of hot glue next to the jewel and press the point of the fabric strip into it. Let it cool and set up a bit. When it’s secure, start twisting the strip. Add a dab of glue every quarter inch or so, and press the twisted fabric into the glue.
     
  4. Continue until the felt is completely covered. To secure the ends, just flip the flower over, trim the excess, and glue the ends down on the back.
