Shabby Chic Flowers
I recently got out some of my laces, antique buttons, gems, and tidbits of ribbon to play with. Sometimes my hands want to make something, and inspiration strikes! On this occasion, I wanted to make some super frilly flowers, and well, here they are!
I added different centers, laces, trims, and even gems or traditional flower centers!
The best thing about making your own, is that there are no rules, only symmetry and inspiration.
This one was made with vintage doily pieces and leftover burlap ribbon from my wedding. Yes, I had some leftover ribbon, and it was not going to be left out!
For the center of this flower, a metal butterfly was just the right fit. It is dainty and delicate, so it doesn't take away from the flower center, made from rolled velvet ribbon.
Some have layers of tulle, ribbon, doily, and even sequins. All of these are definitely one-of-a kind!
I had fun making these flowers. Perhaps you will give it a try also! They are so much fun to make, and each can then adorn a project, or simply be used to decorate your crafty area!
