These beautiful flowers are made of Satin. They are inexpensive and easy to make and can be used for hair bows, brooches or anything you can imagine!

I am a big fan of these flowers. Because they are made of Satin, they are shiny and have a little elegance. I have made a few of these in hair bows for my daughters and we are always congratulated for it.

Let me walk you through the written tutorial. If you prefer to watch a video tutorial, scroll to the bottom of the article.

Tutorial written on satin fabric flowers

1. You will need a satin Polyester fabric. It is sometimes called costume fabric. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby. It’s super inexpensive and it comes in a lot of fun colors. You can buy as little as 1/4 yard and have enough to make a few flowers — you really don’t need a lot of tissue!

2. Cut the squares into gradually smaller sizes. The largest silver flower has four layers and the largest square was probably 4 or 5 inches, so you would need a 4-inch square, a 3 1/2-inch square, a 3-inch square, a 2 1/2-inch square, approximately.

3. Cut slits on each side of the square, as shown in this photo:

4. Using a lighter (the long-handled type works much better than traditional lighters), melt all the outer edges and lower each slot until they shrink and you like the way they look.

5. Stack the squares together from the smallest at the top to the largest at the bottom. Use a hazelnut hot glue between each layer to hold everything together.

6. Hot glue a matching felt circle to the back of each flower.

7. Hot glue a hair clip or a bodice pin to the felt.

8. Add a central ornament if desired. Pearls, precious stones and buttons are cute, but be creative – anything goes!

The circular flower is made in the same way, except that you cut concentric circles and melt its edges (no need for slits). So easy!
