DIY: Gorgeous Chiffon and Tulle Flowers


Photos By: Olivia Kanaley

For this project you will need fabric - we used chiffon and tulle. Yardage needed will vary based on the number and size of flowers, as well as the fabric thickness. You'll also need a piece of paper, a pen, scissors, pins, needle and thread, glass seed beads, and a plain hair clip or comb.

To make a stencil first free hand a rose petal shape and cut out. Then retrace it five times on a larger sheet of paper to create a full flower shape. This will help you get an even pattern. Cut out pattern.
Take some fabric and fold it into a square a little larger than your flower pattern. Pin the pattern to fabric and carefully cut out. Repeat this process until you have enough layers to make a full flower - the number of layers will vary depending on the weight of your fabrics and the size of your flower. The example shown here uses 26 layers.
Stack flower cut outs, alternating fabric types and staggering petals. Use a needle and thread to secure them together at the center.
Pinch together the center of the flower (from the bottom) and secure with stitches to create volume and give the flower and authentic shape.
If desired you can sew decorative beads in the inside center of the flower.
Finally, sew the flower to a hair clip or comb.
You can also create a tie-on corsage or sash, by sewing one or more flowers to a length of silk ribbon.
