DIY Fabric Peonies
Are you looking for an easy way to make the beloved peony? Sometimes you just stumble upon a project and you know it has to go on your ‘Must – Do’ list. This tutorial shows you exactly how to do this and it’s a very inexpensive way to have peonies in your home all year around. They are so realistic! They will look wonderful in every home!
This is my favorite way to make the perfect fabric peonies, and I want to share the tutorial with you. This is one of the most relaxing crafts to do. There’s something about gazing into the glow of a candle as you sear the edges of each petal.
I think these fabric peonies and roses would also make a gorgeous addition to any home decor. You could fasten stems to them and arrange them in a pretty tin or jar on your coffee table. And what about using them as a hair accessory? How adorable would a little lacey one look sewn to a baby headband and used in some sweet spring photos?
- scraps of polyester fabric (that will melt when held near a flame) - we liked using organza, satin, acetate lining, chiffon (this was a little floppy, though) and polyester lace (test all fabrics first to see if their edges curl in the way you want)
- a needle and thread
- a candle
- this pattern for the petals (it's a downloadable PDF)
