Today I would like to show you how to make a fabric decoration which you can pin into your hair, attach to a headband or use as a wrist corsage.

 

 

You will need:

-fabric: I used silk, but you can also use some other delicate fabric

-wires with beads, which will be used as a center of our flower

-paper glue – for example Gloss Modge Podge

-silicon cake mold- petal shape

-paints

-water

-a pencil

-a piece of paper

-scissors

-needle and thread

-knife or other sharp tool

-a small container

STEP 1

First, trace your silicon molds onto paper. Then, based on those tracings, cut out 6 petals and 5 leaves- leaves must be narrower. Finally, stain the petals with various shades of pink and leaves with green.

STEP 2

Place each of the petals and leaves on the silicon mold. In a small container, mix the glue with water in half to half ratio. Cover every piece of fabric with the glue mixture. To make a good impression of the mold, use a metal spatula or a knife. Press the fabric into the slots. Then wait until the fabric dry and stiff. Cut the finished forms to desirable shapes.

 

 

   

   

 

 

STEP 3

Connect the wires using the needle and thread. One by one, add petals to form flower. Add the leaves at the end.
