Today I am going to show you how to make a quick and easy flower out of wired ribbon!

You will need
-wired ribbon
-a cute gem
-felt circle
-clip or brooch pin
-wire cutters
-hot glue

Aqua Wired Ribbon Ribbon and Gems Button Pearls-Rhinestones
Start with 15-20 inches of wired ribbon (I used 2½ inch ribbon). Use scissors to closely cut off one side of the wire. Snip the end of the wire and be sure to fold it over and crimp it so you don’t lose it in the ribbon.

Make sure one end of your wire is folded over, then gently but firmly pull the other end of wire to scrunch up the ribbon.

    What a great idea! My daughter prefers flowers to hairbows, but it’s so hard to find flowers small enough for her that are the color she wants.
