Almost Nothing

  1. Step 1 1

    This is honestly soooo easy. All you require is a glue gun and these materials.

    I used a wooden garden stick but you can also use a stick from outside for a rustic look! The strip of fabric can be any length you want, depending on how "full" you want your flower. My strip in this example was about a yard long.

  2. Step 2 2

    Start by hot gluing your strip of fabric to the stick. You'll want to make sure you have about an inch of fabric sticking above the stick. Then wrap the fabric around the stick and add a dab of glue to secure. Be very careful when gluing because it's tricky not to burn your fingers! (trust me, I have blisters to prove it!)

  3. Step 3 3

    Keep wrapping the fabric around the stick and gluing as you go. Instead of wrapping it tight though, pinch the bottom of the fabric a little before gluing to bunch it up. This is so that your flower's layers spread out instead of being all stuck together tightly.

  4. Step 4 4

    Keep wrapping and bunching... ever so slightly moving down the stick.

  5. Step 5 5

    Pinch to bunch! Then glue... keep going!

  6. Step 6 6

    When you get to the end, fold the top corner down to create a triangle and glue in place.

  7. Step 7 7

    Grab your green felt and cut a strip about an inch and a half in height by about 2 inches long. The size will depend on the width of your stick. Cut some zig zags into the top.

  8. Step 8 8

    Glue the felt around the bottom of your flower to finish it off and hold everything in place!

  9. Step 9 9

    You can then paint your sticks! I just used a green acrylic paint.

  10. Step 10 10

    Make a bunch of them and stick them in a vase and you've got a nice new Valentine's day inspired bouquet! These make a great gift too and only take about 5-10 mins per flower!
