Making flowers... For those who think making flowers is not so easy... Here it is! A step by step instruction for making a lovely Rose flower with fabric. I'm sending this craft idea for Illatharasi's Flowers with Fabric- November event.

Materials Required:
  • Organdy cloth - red colour
  • Metal string for stems
  • Green sticky tape
  • Scissors
  • Thread (green or red colour)
  • Artificial leaves

How to make it:

Cut some square bits out of the cloth (approx 2 in * 2 in) for making petals. Use little more for bigger flowers. Follow the direction in fig. A, fig. B and fig. C for making the petals.

Keep one petal without folding for making the center bud. Now take the string and cut the required length. Fold one end of the string as shown in fig. D. Using the reserved square bit, cover the top of the string completely and tie with a thread.

Now take the petals and arrange one by one surrounding the center bud, tying with the thread as in fig. F. Usually the rose is made with 7 or 9 petals. Roll the green sticky tape over the metal string as in fig. G and attach the leaves. For the bud, Take some cloth and roll around the top of the string 2 or 3 times and tie it with a thread as in fig. E. The rose flower is now ready to decorate any place.

Holiday Tips and Ideas:

  • Make it as a bouquet for your loved ones.
  • Make a bunch of them to go in a flower vase.
  • Make some buds in round shape and tie them together. This definitely will look like cherries with those artificial cherry leaves and makes a perfect holiday decoration.

Again Chandrabhaga is flooded with awards.
