This is a really fun flower with the added beauty of beads!
I saw a flower similar to this one someones blog that they had purchased. Ever since then I have wanted to try it out (if that person was you, or you remember who it was PLEASE let me know :)
For the beaded flower take some small beads (I used about 3 mm size) and some really pliable wire. I am not sure what gauge it is but it is small enough to fit in the small holes of the beads.
Bead the beads onto the wire. Then twist the ends of the wire together and form the petal for the flower
I used 13 beads on each petal. Do this for petals
Now bead another section. I twisted the ends a little bit so that the beads would not fall off.
Twist this section into a small circle.
Now you can assemble the flower now or wait to assemble ontop of your fabric flower.
now cut out 7 circles out of your fabric. My circles are about 3 inches across. The flower is also about 3 inches across (I don't know if that is a real correlation or just happened this time)
Fold over the circle and sew it down. I used white thread so you could see it better and you can't see it on the finished flower.
Now fold the flower so that it creates a flower petal
Sew the petal down. You could also hand sew the flower petal down
your finished petal
make seven petals (I know there are only 5 because I thought that I would only need five...not the case for me)
put a dab of hot glue onto the petal
and stick all the petals together
Now to add the beads (I forgot to take pictures while I was doing this part...)
Put some hot glue in the middle of the fabric flower and add the beaded petals. Then glue the circle beads onto the middle.
Now you have your fabric flower. You can add a hair clip to it or a pin or just sew/glue it onto clothing.
You girls make crafting look so easy!!~
