There are fabric flowers everywhere! I finally made some to go on a lamp shade. I know there are one hundred tutorials out there on how to make these. I'd like to add one little more.
Hot glue gun
Fabric of your choice (I used muslin and burlap)
Cut your fabric into two inch wide strips. Mine were 2 in. wide and around 54 in. long. The length really depends on how large you want the flowers to be. How tightly you wind the fabric will also factor into the size. I like mine loose. I ended up using only one strip of fabric per flower. The muslin was easy to make loose flowers with but the burlap turned out a tighter flower.
Start by tying a knot at one end of your strip of fabric.
Then, twist the fabric and glue it. Keep going around and around twisting and gluing until you're happy with the size of the flower.
Glue the pearls to the center and that's it! There are so many ways to use these. I attached mine to a lamp shade. Didn't it turn out pretty? Love!!
This shade is on a mercury glass bottle lamp. The tutorial for the lamp is here.
