Let’s just jump right into making this flower

Start with a piece of fabric 3 inches wide by 24 inches long.   Twist it really tight.

Fold it in half and it will twist together on its own.

Hot glue the unfolded end under to create the center of the flower.   Continue wrapping around until you get to the folded end, gluing periodically.

The real deal:  It cost less than $0.30 to make one flower.

Are you addicted to making fabric flowers yet?

  9. I read your blog all the time and have done some of your really great ideas. I thought I would tell you why I was making the fabric flower headband. About a month ago my best friend from college gave birth to a GOREOUS baby girl named Avilyn! Shortly after her birth Avi was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. All of our friends and families are getting together to raise awarness and and support this beautiful baby. May is the CF awarness month and the color is purple. So in an effort to stay united on this endevor I am making all of us a purple fabric flower head band. I wanted you to know that not only are you giving people ideas on some amazing and simple crafts you are also helping to spread awarness of CF by giving me the GREAT idea to make them! I wanted to say thank you!
    have a blessed day!

    • That is AWESOME!
      That little girl is on my prayer list!!!  All of the month of May I will be wearing something purple every day!

  10. I've been wanting to learn how to make these for months now!!!  So excited that someone is sharing this fabulous secret!  Thanks soooo much!  You just made my day!  :)

  11. These are so sweet, I linked this up on my blog today.  Come check it out:  http://vixenmade.blogspot.com/2011/06/fabric-and-felt-fashion-rings.html
    I made some of my own, I just love them!!

  12. Hi sorry I'm a n00b to crafting and I dont understand what you mean when you say fold it in half and it twists together on its own. Can you clarify this step for me please? xxx

    • Vikki – You should twist the entire length of the fabric really tight. After twisting, fold it in half so that the two ends are together. Let go of the folded end and if you twisted the fabric tight enough then you will see how the two folded sides twist together. Make sense?

  13. I am so addicted to making fabric flowers now.  I am a photographer and I have always admired the pretty hair adornments that I have seen in other photographers photos and used to think about buying them but I knew I could make them on my own if I just learned how.  I love this one though!  Its perfect and I cant wait to go home and try it out!!  Thank you!!
