DIY. SAVE MONEY.
I had been making some satin flowers that just took way too long to make and so I revised the original tutorial I was using and came up with these flowers that I’m just in love with! I suppose it’s no surprise because I’m definitely a daisy kind of girl and I love using bright colors to make these flowers! There are so many combinations to make and I never seem to have enough time to make all the ones I want to do!
- needle and thread
- hair clip/headband
- hot glue gun
- fabric scissors
1. Cut a strip of satin that is about 15-18 inches long and 2 inches wide and in a different color, one that is the same length as the other one but 4 inches wide.
Neither of these have to be exact measurements for width, it doesn’t really matter, except that the lengths are the same, and I never use a ruler for this and am just guessing at the lengths and widths I find work best.
2. Cut petals out of your strip, but not cutting all the way through. Your cutting doesn’t need to be perfect.
3. Light a candle and hold the satin near the flame to seal and curl the edges. Do this along the entire length of the petal side.
It is very difficult to get in the crevices so sometimes I don’t get them all the way sealed.
4. Cut a piece of thread, thread it through a needle and then tie the ends together.
5. Put your two pieces of satin together, with the wider one on the bottom.
6. Hand stitch along the bottom of both of them.
7. When you get to the end, sew it into the first part and then pull it tightly and tie a double knot and clip the extra threads off.
8. Hot glue a gem in the center of the flower.
9. Hot glue the flower to a hair clip or headband.
10. Cut a piece of felt and hot glue it to the back of the hair clip or headband to provide extra security.
