Satin flowers

Satin flowers like this are quick and easy to make-

Just cut out various sizes of satin circles, they don't have to be perfect, just a rough circle shape-

Then use a candle or flame to melt the edges.  Carefully, it can catch on fire if you stick it into the flame too much!  As the edges melt it'll make the satin curl up-

Then you lay out your various size petals, and stack them up the way you want them-

Then put a couple of stitches through them to hold them in place, you could glue each layer, but the stitching is quicker-

Then add some embellishments to the center-

You can add them to a satin dress-

Or glue it to a headband and over the back with another satin square-

They're pretty clipped to a shirt-

Or made into a hair clip-

Here is the headband again-

So much fun, right?  The best part is that satin is super cheep and these are really fun and easy to make!  Just don't burn your fingers!
