Hi! My name is Kristin, from Forget Me Not. While Anne is away, enjoying a lovely vacation, I will be showing you how to create a fun hair pretty for the lovely little ladies in your life! With school starting, your little miss is sure to have some new outfits, which means she needs some new hair pretties to match. Accessorize from head to toe, we always say! Today, we will be creating a singed satin flower. I like to call these Silken Petals, as they are so soft and silky sweet!

 

DIY: Singed Satin Flowers

IMG_7917

What you will need:

  • Satin fabric – Be sure it’s 100% polyester, or you could be facing a potential fire!
  • Cute button or beading for the center of the bloom
  • Scissors
  • Lighter or candle
  • Needle & thread
  • Small piece of felt, about 1-1.5” in diameter
  • Hot glue gun
  • Headband, alligator clip, or pin
  • Small cup of water – This is to use as a safety precaution in case your fabric ignites! ALWAYS err on the side of caution!

Start by cutting several circles of your satin, in all different sizes. The largest will be the approximate size of the bloom. The smallest circle should be no smaller than 1.5” in diameter. Ladies, let the OCD in you rest a bit and don’t worry about perfection when it comes to cutting your circles. In this case, imperfection gives you a bit more perfection in the finished product. :)

Once your circles are cut, you are going to need to singe/seal the edges. Take your fabric and hold it over the lit candle or lighter to curl/singe the edges of the circles. Be careful not to hold the fabric over the flame in one spot for too long or you could burn it! Here’s what your fabric circles should look like once you’ve completed that step:

Next, you are going to want to stack your circles to get the desired look. Start with your largest circle, and stack them from largest to smallest. Keep in mind, the more fabric you use, the fuller your finished piece will be. Don’t worry if you don’t use all of your circles. Just set them aside and use them for the next one.

Once you get them stacked how you want them, take your needle and thread and throw a few stitches in the center to hold them together. This is also the time to sew that button on or set of beads or whatever you choose to embellish with.

All that’s left to do is cut a circle from your piece of felt, and glue the bloom to the hot glue gun. Use the felt as a backing to give the bloom a little more support on the band.

I couldn’t possibly create this tutorial without giving you a heavy dose of adorable. Meet “K”, my sweet little cookie. Who HATES headbands. It’s a battle I have not yet given up on and am determined to win! ;)
