I made these no-sew fabric flowers for Kate’s room about a year ago and I’m finally getting around to blogging about them. Not sure how some of these projects slip through the cracks, but better late than never, right?! I found an image and tutorial on Pinterest and thought these looked pretty straight forward to make. You will need scrap fabric, wooden dowel rods, small pieces of felt, craft paint (if you wish to paint your dowel rods) and hot glue. I had all of these items on hand except the dowel rods, and you can purchase packs of these at Hobby Lobby or any craft store for cheap (don’t forget your 40% off coupon)!If you are choosing to paint your dowel rods, you will first need to paint these and wait for them to dry. I painted four and left one natural. You will need to cut your fabric into long narrow strips. I don’t know where my mind was when I was making these, but I failed to take pictures of the steps. Please click here for detailed picture instructions.
The basic concept is to scrunch up the fabric around the base of the dowel rod and hot glue. Continue wrapping and scrunching all the way around the dowel rod until it starts to look like a flower.Once you have the fabric adhered to the rod, you will want to cut a small piece of felt to cover up any mess underneath the “flower”.
