How to Make Fabric Flowers

I’ve seen so many fabric flower projects but never taken the time to make my own until recently. My mom and I made these fabric flowers to go on this year’s Christmas wreath (post coming soon!), and they are surprisingly easy to make.

Use fabric flowers on wreaths, in place of bows on gifts or on headbands and barrettes for the special little (or big!) girls in your life. I’ve also seen them attached to pins, bracelets and necklaces. How would you use fabric flowers?

How to Make Fabric Flowers

Supplies:

  • fabric
  • scissors
  • hot glue

Directions:

Start by cutting fabric strips 2-3” wide and  1.5-3’ long. The width determines how chunky or tall your flower is and the length determines the overall size or width of the flower.

Add hot glue to the strip. Then, fold the strip in half, wrong side together, and press down to secure.

Carefully begin rolling the fabric strip at one end. Secure it with hot glue.

Continue rolling, twisting the fabric as you go. Use hot glue to secure it in place.

Voila! It really is that easy!
