This is such a cute little flower! There a few ways to make this flower,
but I can honestly say this is the EASIEST way!
Another thing I like about using this flower maker is how uniform it makes the flower.
Every petal is exactly the same.
I made this flower using the Kanzashi Flower Maker available at The Ribbon Retreat. It is such a great thing to have around! You can get one for only $6.00 and start saving time. Completely worth it!
I can guarantee I will be making more of these flowers!
The Flower Maker comes with very easy to follow instructions.
First you sandwich the fabric in the flower maker.
Then you cut the excess fabric.
If you look closely you can see that there are holes in the plastic with numbers. You will take the needle through these holes in the number order.
After you have gone through each hole take the plastic off and pull the thread tight.
Repeat the process above until you have the petals you want. (You do not cut the thread). I did a 5 petal flower. I also really love 6 petal flowers.
When you are done with the petals connect the first and last petals by taking the needle though the petals and then tie the thread in a knot.
Glue a button in the center with a hot glue gun.
I used a button from my Flirtation Button Jar.
I glued a felt circle and a lined single prong clip to the back.
Don’t you think this could be a cute brooch?
One thing I was thinking with Christmas coming up is how cute it would be to make these with Christmas fabric and hang them on your tree. They would make a really cute ornament!
If you connected a bunch together these flowers would also make a beautiful garland!
Even if you only use them for hair decoration this is such a fun flower!
Since it is so easy why not give it a try yourself?
