Simple Fabric Flower DIY

Today I’m sharing one of the easiest DIY crafts you can possible do, but one that has so many possibilities.  These are easy to make fabric ‘flowers’ that I used on my backyard bbq dessert table.  This simple embellishment can be used to dress up almost anything.  Here’s what you need:
  • Strips of fabric cut to size with pinking shears
  • A button
  • Needle & thread
  1. Begin layering your strips of fabric in criss cross patterns until you have a full circle.
  2. Then place your button in the center and sew a few stitches through it and the fabric to keep it all together.
  3. Apply the ‘flower’ using glue dots, and enjoy!
I can think of dozens of ways to use these to dress up a party: sew them onto a birthday girls tee shirt, attach to the corner of place mats, attach them to apothecary jars, apply them to favor boxes….
You can also add in strips of ribbon, lace, and burlap for more texture.  Do you have some ideas?  Share them here!
