• 1/8 yard of Silk Dupioni

• Hot glue gun

• Scissors

Step 1:

Cut your silk down to approximately 2" strips. Tie a loose knot at one end of the fabric; this will become the center of your flower.

Step 2:

Start with a small dot of hot glue on the side of the knot.

Step 3:

Begin to form the flower by wrapping the fabric around in a turning and twisting circular motion around the knot. Be sure to twist in an upward motion, from bottom to top, adding a dot of hot glue as you twist the fabric in place.

Keep your frayed edges of fabric folded to the inside as you go.

Step 4:

Once your rose is the size you want, cut off remaining silk, leaving a couple inches at the end. Fold silk back over itself to make a clean, flat surface on the bottom and glue in place.
