Happy Friday!!! It’s been a fun and busy week here at the shop! We have been ordering, receiving and putting away a ton of fun new products!!!! And the fun will only continue next week as we get more restock and new products in! Whew!!
We have a brand new flower in that is SO RANUNCULUSLY COOL!!! (I keep typing that word and giggling at my desk…hehe!!) And nope, that’s not a typo these fun little guys are actually called Ruffle Ranunculus Flowers.
We have them in 12 fabulous colors! Of course we just had to put them on a headband. This also inspired us to do a tutorial on how to remove the plastic stem for a flower and embellish it with a button!!
What You’ll Need:
- One Ruffle Rununculus Flower
- A Button (We used our Grey Pearl Center Button)
- 15″ Elastic Headband
- 1 Felt Circle
- First thing you need to do is pull the stem off the back of the flower. This is much easier than it seems; the back stem will pop right off!! Now when you do this remember you’re going make all the petals loose too so you’ll want to keep a close eye on them!
- Take each petal layer off and keep them in order. You’re going to glue them all back together as you go! Once you’ve pulled the petals off the stem; you should have a nice stack of loose petals.
- Starting on the bottom petal (so the first petal you pulled off the flower) add a small amount of glue to the center of the flower and press the next petal down on top of it. Make sure you don’t use too much glue because you don’t want the center of the flower to be too thick.
- Once you have all the petals glued together you should have the flower recreated but without the stem and original flower center. Now you can add a button of your choice to the middle to make it fancy! We used our grey pearl center button. Add a small amount of glue to the back of the button (in our case we had to cut the shank off the back to create a flush back) and press to the center of the flower. Hold on to it for a second to make sure it stays.
- Now flip the flower over and glue your headband to the back of the flower.
- To keep the headband in place and give it a good finished look, glue a felt circle to the back of the flower over the headband!
- And this will be your finished product!!!
Oh my goodness. how cute is that?!?!
