These make beautiful hair accessories
These flowers are fairly easy to make and are great for using up any small scraps of fabric you have lying around. I love making them into hair decorations by putting them onto hair clips.

    Step 2

    Step 1: Cut out 6 4x4cm squares of your chosen fabric. I find taffeta or silk fabrics tend to work best, however any fabric can be used.

    Step 2: Fold one of the squares in half to create a triangle. Make sure the right side of the fabric is facing out.

    Step 8: This step is optional but I think it makes the flowers look a bit nicer on the back and last a little longer. Use fabric glue to seal the raw edges of the fabric on the back of the flower.

    Step 9: Once the glue has dried your kanzashi flower is finished and you can use it in a number of ways. I personally like to attach them to hair clips and voila you have a beautiful hair accessory!
