diy {satin flower}

These pretty satin flowers are the perfect embellishment to brighten up any outfit. The best thing is they are so simple to make! Read on to find out how to make your own...

What you need:
- poly satin
- felt
- scissors
- candle
- glue gun
- needle and thread
- beads
- pin
Cut the satin into circles of varying sizes. What I do is cut the biggest circle first and then make them gradually smaller as I go. The more circles you use the fuller your flower will be.
Hold the satin circle shiny side down and begin to rotate the edges around the candle flame.
{Please be extremely cautious when using fire!}
 This process will seal the edges and cause them to curl in, making them look just like petals.
 Layer the petals and stitch an "x" through the center
 Sew on some pretty beads in the middle.
 From the felt, cut out a pair of leaves, a circle and a rectangle.
First glue on the leaves then cover the back with the felt circle.
Sew the pin to the rectangular piece and hot glue it to the top of the circle as shown
 And there you have yourself a beautiful flower pin!
 It looks so sweet on a cardigan
You can take this same process and with a few different finishing steps make a lovely flower ribbon belt
 It is a great accent to a pretty summer dress. Wouldn't this be a cute accessory for a flower girl?
 You can also create a pretty hair clip.
Here are the backs of all three flowers. As you can see all you have to do is finish the flowers a little differently and you can make all these cute options. What will you make with your satin flowers?
