How To Make A Fabric and Mesh Flower, YouTube Thursday - The Ribbon Retreat Blog
How many flower fans do I have out there? If you are raising your hands in the air and waving them like you just don’t care…hehehehe…wow, showing my age…then you are going to love today’s brand new YouTube video tutorial.

Sometimes I forget that flowers don’t just come pre-made but that you can make them out of your favorite fabric to match, perfectly, to the little outfit you just made for your little sweetie, granddaughter, friend or for yourself. Fabric flowers are easy to make, and they are so much fun to wear clipped to a headband, to a brooch or simply right into your hair.

Today, Shirley is going to show us how to create an adorable fabric flower accessorized with fun mesh, aka tulle, to give the flower some added personality and flair. So grab your fabric, tulle, and clip or headband and let’s get started!

Grey Tulle Tulle and Fabric Button Stone Essential Dots
Headband or Clip
2 felt circles – 1 ¼”
Hi-Temp Glue Gun


In just a couple of minutes, these fun flowers come to life and are ready to accessorize all day long! The mesh is such a great embellishment and really adds a little something extra to set this cute flower apart from the rest.

You can also learn how to create this Fabric and Mesh Flower with our awesome written tutorial, found HERE. You can also find some more pretty incredible tutorials on using and creating your own flowers HERE!

I am having so much fun learning from our incredible YouTube Video Tutorials. They are so easy to follow, and I love being able to stop the video to rewind it to review any steps I may need to pay a little added attention to.
