I''m back! Sorry for the month-long absence. The kids had spring break and we went out of town and then things were just crazy for a few weeks. To get back into the swing of things, here's a super easy and cute flower tutorial.
Materials needed: Fabric scraps, hot glue gun, felt
Step 1: Cut three strips of matching or mixed fabrics (I've done both) about 20 inches long and 1 inch wide.
Step 2: Use a couple of dots of hot glue to attach the ends of the three pieces.
Step 3: Braid the fabric.
Step 4: After you've braid the fabric, seal the end off with hot glue. The cut a circle of felt about 2 inches in diameter. Start gluing the braid in a circle pattern.
Step 5: Seal the end off with hot glue and if you'd like, use FrayEnze on the end to stop it from fraying.
Step 6: Now, you can either make your flower(s) into a pin or a head band. I decided to do a head band. For the second flower I used a jersey knit fabric, so I cut a strip of that to use as the headband.
Step 7: Glue your flowers to your headband.
And here's the finished product. I just tied the head band at the nape of the neck. Sorry for the terrible pic of the finished product!
