HI Ribbon Retreat followers! I am Adrienne and I blog over at Free Time Frolics. I share sewing tutorials, recipes and free printables on my blog. Today, I wanted to share with you an easy way to dress up a holiday dress.

I love making my little miss a new dress for the holidays but sometimes I just don’t have time. So I buy a new frilly dress from Costco or Sam’s Club. So whether you buy a dress or make one, you can make it fancy with just a few flowers!

Satin Rolled Rose Grey Sweet Pea  Jade Blue French Twist Grey French Twist Gold Poppy Turquoise Tansey Lace Old Gold La Fleur
Round Pearls, No Hole
Flowers Button
For this sash I used these flowers:
Satin Rolled Rose
Sweet Pea
Tansey Lace Flower
(2) French Twists
Faux Pearls
Sparkle Round

Other supplies I used:
6×8 piece of Felt
Glue Gun

The Ribbon Retreat has every type of flower you can think of. The color assortment and styles are the best around. Pick out some that work for your dress. Be creative. Add more sparkles or less. It’s totally up to you.

Start by placing your flowers in a cluster to your liking. I moved mine around until I had them just the way I wanted them. Take a picture with your phone so you can remember how you liked them.

Start with one flower. I like to work from the center out or from one side. Add glue to the back and place on the felt. Continue adding flowers until your cluster is all glued together.

Add your pearls and sparkles. Less is more, so go easy on the pearls.

To add this to a dress, flip your cluster over. add two loops, one on each end. Making it so a sash can be threaded through it.

So that’s it. Just add them to a sash on a dress and you are ready to go! You can also make these into a necklace on a smaller scale! I have seen these added to wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses,and prom dresses.

Thank you Adrienne! Isn’t this sash stunning? I love that arrangement of flowers and the color scheme is gorgeous and perfect for fall. This fun sash is the perfect accessory and great for so many different occasions. For more eye catching projects by Adrienne, make sure to pop on over to her blog at Free Time Frolics.

    How beautiful, Adrienne! Wouldn’t this be a gorgeous way to dress up a flower girl’s dress (or even the bridesmaids’, now that I think about it!)? Thank you for sharing your lovely idea. xoxo

      Hi Tiara! Thank you for your question. There is not actually a video to create this Sash. I am sorry! We do have a few other video tutorials that focus on bunching up flowers in a similar way that may be of help. You can find those video tutorials HERE and HERE! These videos will help with the clustering technique that you would use to create your Floral Cluster Sash. Good luck and have a wonderful day! Michelle 🙂
