How to Make a Shabby Chick Ruffled Ribbon Flower
Ruffled hair flowers seem to be popping up everywhere spring and for good reason. They are girly, hand-made crafty, and have that sweet vintage charm. For making this, all you need is ribbon, scissors, needle, thread, and a simple gathering stitch for whipping up.
They are so simple and easy to make. It is ideal to find a reliable wedding and craft product supplier for buying glitter tulle, organza ruffle ribbon, fabrics, rhinestone, deco mesh, and many others.
Below, I’m going to share some quick tips for making a beautiful ruffled ribbon flower.
- Organza ribbon in pink, shocking pink, and white
- Upholstery thread and needle
- Hot glue gun & glue
- Rotary cutter/wood burner/scissors
- Bottlecap image & epoxy sticker
- White felt circles
- Alligator clip
First, cut your ribbon. You need six 3-inch pieces for your top layer and nine 3-inch pieces for your bottom layer. For making your craft more cost-effective, you can buy ribbon from sales.
In this step, thread your first piece of ribbon onto the needle and start with one short end and make a running stitch down the long side of your ribbon piece.
After that, push the ribbon piece to the knot at the end of your ribbon and you will see you have formed your first ribbon petal.
Repeat the above steps with each piece of ribbon. If you are using multiple colors then make sure you align them on your thread the way you want your finished flower. After adding all the petals to the flower, pull the thread tightly and tie several knots for holding the flower together.
Do the above steps with your white ribbon. Now, you have two separate flowers and you can adjust your petals by gently pulling on them.
Glue your flowers together and run a line of glue around the center of the white flower and press your pink flower down.
In this step, glue your felt circle onto the bottom of your flower.
At last, glue your image onto the center of your flower and add your alligator clip to the back.
By following the above-mentioned tips you can make a beautiful ruffles ribbon flower. You can find a reliable wedding and craft product supplier for buying glitter tulle bolt, organza fabric, tulle fabric, tablecloths, lace garters, and tulle ribbon at cheap prices.
