Sometimes a girl’s outfit needs a little pop of color or sass or something spectacular added to it…right?!? It could be something as simple as a scarf, some dangly earrings, or a fabulous necklace. But even then, sometimes you need something in addition to achieve your one of a kind look. Well, look no further! Today, Kaeleen is sharing the funnest way to add that perfect amount of pizazz to your outfit or accessory with an adorable Wired Ribbon Flower. This flower is fun, full and fantastic for adding that exact pop of color and sass! Enjoy!
Today I am going to show you how to make a quick and easy flower out of wired ribbon!
You will need
-a cute gem
-clip or brooch pin
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.
Draw scallops on your ribbon.
Cut along the scallop lines!
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.
Next, twist the ribbon into a tight circle layering it up as you go.
Glue your flower onto a felt circle.
Attach your cute gem to the front!
Add a clip or a broach pin to the back, and clip it in your hair, on a necklace, or on a bag, the possibilities are endless!
