Photo from MadeFresh flowers are lovely but, as you probably know too well, they have a tendency to wilt, die, and shed their petals all over the place.
Here's a perfect project for using up all those leftover swatches of your favorite fabrics. These flowers are not only handmade -- so you don't have to deal with the messiness of fresh-cut ones -- but there's no sewing at all involved, so the time and effort it takes to make them is, thankfully, minimal.
To make these, you only need: The fabric of your choice, inexpensive wooden dowels (pick them up at any craft store), a hot glue gun, a sponge, and the spray paint color of your choice. That's a refreshingly easy list!
The steps are simple and Made walks you through each one. In no time, you can have display-worthy flowers that don't irritate your wallet, your sinuses, or your schedule.
I love crafts like this.
