Hi! I’m Emily from Bits of Everything. This little flower made out of Rick Rack is cute, quick, and easy!
There are tons of different color combinations you could use. You can be as creative as you want!
There is still time to make some for Christmas presents too, so hurry…don’t wait!
~ Rick Rack Flower Tutorial ~
Here are the supplies you need!
#1. 1 yard Ric Rac
(Size and color your choice. I used 3/4″ Turquoise)
#2. 2 Felt Circles
(You’ll want it to match as close as you can. I ordered Sapphire and it was perfect!)
#3. 1-12mm Clear Rhinestones
#4. 1-40mm Rectangular Snap Clip
#5. Glue Gun, Matching Thread and a Needle
Start by treating the end of your rick rack so that it doesn’t fray. Next, starting on the outside of the circle, begin sewing the rick rack and continue going around the outside.
After you get all the way around, I like to put the curves of the second row, in the dips of the first row.
Sometimes this will mean you have to stretch it out a little or pull them a little closer together.
Just keep going around until you are at the middle and you have covered the felt circle completely.
I cut and treat the end of my rick rack, and then tack it down in the center.
Then tie a knot on the back and cut your unwanted string.
Then just hot glue the rhinestone in the center!
To add the clip, I cut a small slit in the 2nd felt circle and slip my clip into it.
I secure the clip by hot gluing it to the felt.
Next I glue both pieces of felt together and you are finished! Simple as that!
Seriously… you’ve got to try it!
Here is how it looks in my little girl’s hair!
Just for fun, I used the Jumbo sized rick rack to sew a bigger flower.
Here is how it turned out! This time I put a hair clip and a clip that you can attach to clothing on it!
I used a 3 1/2″ felt circle on the back! I also obviously used a bigger rhinestone in the center.
Here are a few more projects I’ve put together using this technique!
Thank you so much Emily!
