DIY Flower Patterns. Simple and Easy Ribbon Flowers

I love making flowers out of ribbon and fabric. Here are a couple of patterns that I have available in my shop.


Today we are sharing one of our favorites. Its simple and uses only ribbon and elastic. 

Ribbon flower Tutorial


50 inches of ribbon (I used 7/8 inch ribbon and 3/8 inch grosgrain ribbon, but you can use just one or a combination of several)
30 inches of ¼ inch elastic
Hot glue
Hair Clip or pin
Small piece of fabric


Follow the directions above, but use one continuous piece of ribbon
Also, when using ribbon you need to seal the ends of the ribbon by either using fray check, a match, a lighter, or a heat gun. It really does not matter the method you just don’t want your ribbon to fray/unravel
1. Sew the ribbon onto the elastic. Make sure to pull the elastic as tight as possible.
