How to Make a Fabric Flower Instructions

  1. Prepare fabric by selecting width, and if desired prep edges by pinking or folding.

  2. Fold one short edge into a triangle shape with a point facing up, glue to secure.

  3. Twist fabric 90 degrees every 2” – 4” and, working in a spiral pattern, fold the fabric around the center, gluing as often as necessary to secure the folds.

  4. Continue until the flower is desired width. Leaving approximately 2” for back, trim off excess fabric.

  5. Fold that 2” to the back and glue the back to the folded flower. Add glue if needed to keep the folder flower in the shape you want.

  6. Glue pin back into place.

Just about any type of fabric would be great to use to make these no sew flowers. I wonder however if burlap would be an acceptable fabric the kind that comes on a roll. The raw edges of the burlap might be charming on a fall wreath made of autumn colors. I love the no-sew idea to make these pretty flowers.

These are so cute and they don't look that difficult! I am trying to think of projects the pretty flowers could be used on. Has anyone made these and if so, how do you utilize them? I think they'd be adorable on a gift box for someone. They would also make nice 3D applique if you could secure it to a background of a wall hanging. I'm eager to try these out! Thanks for a great idea.

I have not made any yet .Have you? I want to make headbands for my grand daughter. I can see it as a brooch,on a card,on a wreath on sandals or even shoes. They can be used as a bracelet with some lace and elastic. Anywhere you can think of. This is a great project and nice video.

The video keeps stopping at the halfway mark, and won't buffer or continue to play no matter how long I wait

I have learned so many different ways to make DIY flowers, so I'm really excited to see how making fabric flowers go! This is a super helpful video!
