I love these fun flowers. I have seen them all over blogland! I love all the different ways that people have come up with using them!
Here's how I did mine.
First I cut out a bunch of circles from this sheer fabric I found at JoAnn's.
(I hate to say this... but I don't even remember what the fabric was called... lol. I just picked up the first inexpensive sheer white I saw)
I did them in different sizes, so when I layered them, they looked like a flower
Some of them had bends and such in them, so I used a warm iron and ironed all the circles flat.
PS. Obviously you can tell that none of these are really "circles"... The best part about it, is that you're going to make them all uneven anyway, so there's no need to stress about getting them perfect.
Then I took a candle and lightly ran the edges of each flower along the heat of the flame.
**Don't get too close, or your flower will just burn up.
They looked like this after I was finished
Then I took a needle and thread and put a stitch through the middle, to keep all my petals together, how I wanted them.
Lastly I added a few pink crystal beads to the middle.... I did 7 of them.
I would have glued them, but they were going on a pillow for my 2 year olds room, so I wanted them to have a little more durability.
And there you have it!
This was SO SO SO easy.
And you can do it with LOTS of different fabrics. I've seen them embellished with vintage buttons and such too. Really cute!
