Denim Flower Tutorial

I was a guest over at Robyn's View earlier this month and shared this denim flower. I would now like to share with all my readers how I make this flower. It is definitely one of my favorites, out of all the flowers I have ever made :) I hope you all enjoy!




Supplies:
Jeans
Hot glue gun & hot glue
Scissors
Marker
and something to have a circle shape

Start by taking your shape and tracing 8 circles on the underside of the jeans.


Cut the circles out.


Take one circle and fold it in half. Put a SMALL amount of hot glue in the middle of the fold.


You can see the pinch in the middle, that's where the glue is.


Next, you will fold one of the sides of the circle towards the center.


Put a SMALL dab of glue at the bottom.


Do the same thing for the other side. It should now look like this.


Do that to all the circles.


Take a scrap piece of the jean and make a circle. You will then glue 4 pieces to the circle. Like you are putting a pie back together.


You should now have this, we will now add the other 4 pieces.


You will layer them on top of the gap {where my finger is where you will place the next one}. Continue to do this with the other 3.

ALMOST DONE!
Here comes the hard part, chose a button, rhinestone, bead... something to put in the middle.

You can now make this into a brooch, hair clip, put it on a headband. Put it on our No Headband Headband, that's what I did in the picture at the very top. Put it on a gift as a bow... the possibilities are endless. Have fun with you new flower!
