How to Make Wired Ribbon Flowers: The Simplest Flowers EVER


 UPDATE:
This was one of my first tutorials.  It is still popular today.  I NEEEED to update it with new pictures, but that, as you all know, takes lots of time.  lol

I hope you enjoy this little tutorial on how to make wired ribbon flowers






Take 2" wired ribbon. Cut a piece as long as your arms




Pull out one wire.

On the other wire place tape at one end. The tape is to make sure that you don't pull the wire all the way through.

Pull the wire from the other end until the ribbon is all bunched up. Place tape on the end that you were pulling from right next to the ribbon. This will hold the ribbon all bunched up.

Place the ribbon in a circle. Mine completed 3 circles

Pull the one of the wire through the middle hole (in the middle of the circle)

Twist the wires together and remove the tape.


Hot glue the flower onto a ribbon lined clip.




Enjoy!
