DIY Ruffled Flowers

4 Materials
I wanted to share with you today a quick, easy DIY craft you can do that looks great in any of your home décor or craft projects!!
These ruffled flowers can be made with basically scraps! I just used some scrap fabric and cardstock. With a little hot glue, and a few extra minutes, you can make one or a ton.
In the picture below, I have all the supplies laid out that you will need:

*Glue gun

*Extra glue sticks

*Cardstock cut into circles

*Scraps of fabric cut into strips​​​​​​
I also put together this quick video to show the process of putting these flowers together. Quite simple! Just add a layer of glue around the outside edges of your cardstock, and then add your fabric, folding and pushing it into the glue as you go around. Hopefully the video gives you a clear idea of how it works.
So that's it! Super easy.

I have a few examples below of where I have some of my flowers in my house. I have a fun frame shelf in my craft room that my husband built for me, and I just added a few flowers to the corner of it. The blue one you see here has been spritzed with Tattered Angels' Patina Glimmer Mist.​
These next flowers I made quite a while ago and added them to these candle holders I made out of old shutters. The ruffled flower is made the same way the other ones were, but the rolled flower is just a strip of fabric that I twisted and curled up, gluing as I go.
So that's it! Very simple. Maybe I've given you some ideas to get started on some of your own!
