A scrapy flower crown tutorial




1) Materials: A strong but flexable metal whire, pliers and fabric scraps


2) first of all i started making the flowers. I decided to make some scrapy roses, but you can do what ever flower you most desire for. This is how i made mine: I took white fabric, i cut it in to rectangles and then took diffarnt patternd pink fabric and sewd two pices of each, together.


And here you can see them all lined up:




3)Then i zigzag cut one side of rectangles, with regular scissers. Then i rolld them up like this:


All rolld up:




4) Then i made the leafs from small green triangles:






5) And now for the "crown" it self: I took white flannel fabric and wrapt tightly around the metal whire. Then i sewd through in different directins:





6) And now for the fun part: Decorating!
I made white straps like these:




And tied them all around






7) I took black thread to connect the roses by sewing threw them and tieing them up to the decorated whire






All most done!




Just missing a pink satin ribbon:


8) And all you need is a cute head to put it on like this one:

This is adorable--I wish I had a little girl to make one for. I may just make one for myself instead!

You can see the one I made for my niece at my handmade Christmas post - I used one piece of an embroidery hoop since I happened to have it and didn't have any wire. :>) Thanks for sharing!!
