Ribbon belts with flower embellishments.Making a felt flower.

I make head pieces and accessories for a local dance studio for competitions and photos. They needed a pop of red for a group photo so I whipped up these easy ribbon belts! Each belt needed to be slight different. I love how the creative process works! While creating one belt i came up with a way for a different one!

I used a silk flower, riffles and felt to create three different looks! The silk flower was easy…remove the back plastic part and glue! the ruffles were wrapped in a circle and glued down onto felt. and the last one was created with that plastic left over piece from the silk flower!
Supplies are simple. One yard of ribbon for each belt, belt loops and your flower to embellish.

 

Sew the belt loops together on one end and roll and finish off the edge of the other.
To create the demetional felt flower you’ll need the plastic backing to any silk flower and cut circles of felt. Teh circles do not need to be perfect but they need to stagger in size.
Using hot glue you’ll glue each circle, starting from largest to smallest, into the center of the plastic flower part. It will create a beautiful ruffle look with each layer.
The last circle you’ll need to fold to get into the very center!
Fluff up the layers and add dabs of glue to make extra ruffles and folds.
And there you have it!
