Find out how to use a candle to make EASY fabric flowers! You can make headbands and barrettes OR use them to freshen up your home decor!

Easy Fabric Flowers

I LOVE anything with flowers – especially in the Springtime!! I loved having a little girl that I could dress up with all the cuteness in her hair. My little is grown now, so I’ve had to figure out another way to use flowers.

These Easy Fabric Flowers can not only be used on headbands and barrettes, but they can also be used in your home decor to freshen things up a bit! Just imagine using them for ALL the seasons and holidays!

Here’s what you need to make your own easy fabric flowers:

  • Satin/polyester blend fabric – think prom dresses 😉
  • Scissors
  • Candle
  • Hot glue
  • Buttons or rhinestones

This project doesn’t require a lot of fabric, but you do want to make sure it’s a satin/polyester blend.

Cut your circles about 3″ in diameter. I used a mason jar lid to trace mine onto the back of the fabric. They also don’t have to be all the same size. You can do several sizes and it will give the flowers a layered look.

Once all your circles are cut, snip about a 1/2 down about 6 times around the circle.

Next, you’re going to want to slightly “burn” the edges of the flowers. You can use a lit candle or a candle lighter. It is whatever is most comfortable for you.

Take caution to not hold the fabric over the flame for a long time. It WILL catch on fire and burn the fabric. It just takes a simple swipe across the flame and you will get the singed look that we are going for.

Once all of your pieces are burned and have the “ruffled” look, you can start layering them together with hot glue.

Each flower will take about 4-6 layers, depending on the look you are trying to achieve. Play around with it before you hot glue them.

Once you are satisfied with the layers, you can finish it off with a rhinestone or button.
