Does anyone have a step by step DIY intructions to make these? I think they’re beautiful and was looking at them on Etsy, they look easy enough to make, but I don’t want to miss out on any tips and tricks. 🙂 I thought it’s be cool to DIY so I could pick my own fabrics/lace etc.

Theyre actually pretty easy. I made some for a hat i wore to the Del Mar races this year. I choose organza and tulle in the shades i wanted, cut them invarious rounds and then used a lighter to burn the edges (thats what makes them curl up a bit). once i had all the different circles cut and burned, i stacked them on top of each other in different arrangements and sewed beads into the centers. poof – instant pretty flower!
i will warn you that burning fabric totally stinks up your house!

Miss Poodle among others posted a tutorial on the blog. Do a search for hair flower and you should find it!

Oh! Can you use any type of fabric…that will take the burn and make that curled affect? I can see the fire department call already… LOL

These are what I’m planning to use for my bouquets and have tossed around the idea of DIY. Have bought the fabric (I’m trying satin and tulle), just need the motivation…

I’ve been eyeing those exact ones. They’re a little more expensive than I’d like to spend, but her work is so beautiful!
I’m going to keep an eye on these responses.

Here‘s Miss Poodle’s post on the subject. I think it works with any fabric as long as it’s a polyester blend – a natural fabric (like silk organza) may char.

Yes, I’m going to try do them on my own. I’ll let you ladies know how it turns out. I’ll try some lace, eyelet…and some pretty fabrics. Wish me luck! I’m going to get some fabrics etc tomorrow and see how creative I can get! LOL
