No-Sew Wire Ribbon Flower

So, yea….flower kick. I’m definitely on it. And I love this flower. I found this beautiful wire ribbon at my local thrift store. It fades from gold to light blue to a vibrant blue.

1. On one side, cinch the ribbon down on the wire. So you’ll end up with a whole length of ribbon on about 10+ inches of wire.

2. Decide which end you’d like to be the center of your flower. Fold the end over so that the raw edges are covered

3. Roll the bottom end. I like to use needle nose pliers. You don’t actually need them, the wire will roll just fine with out them. But they just make life a little easier.

4. When you get to the end, bring the raw edge down to the bottom roll. Pin in place if you’d like

5. Cut a circle out of duck fabric, and one out of felt. They should be the size of the bottom of your flower. (I originally cut a 1″ circle, but I went back and made it much bigger so the flower would be flatter)

6. Hot glue time! Hot glue the duck fabric down to the bottom of the flower. Then glue on your pin backing. Then top of off with your felt

7. Glue 3 glass beads into the center. And your done!!!!!!!!!!!
