This is a ribbon tulip flower idea. It’s very simply and beautiful .
About tulip :
The tulip is a perennial, bulbous plant with showy flowers in the genus Tulipa, of which around 75 wild species are currently accepted[1] and which belongs to the family Liliaceae.[2] The genus’s native range extends west to the Iberian Peninsula, through North Africa to Greece, the Balkans, Turkey, throughout the Levant (Syria, Israel, Lebanon, Jordan) and Iran, North to Ukraine, southern Siberia and Mongolia, and east to the Northwest of China.[1] The tulip’s centre of diversity is in the Pamir, Hindu Kush, and Tien Shan mountains.[3] It is a typical element of steppe and winter-rain Mediterranean vegetation. A number of species and many hybrid cultivars are grown in gardens, as potted plants, or as cut flowers.



15 Fun DIY Ribbon Crafts and Projects

When it comes to choosing which materials to use in our crafting processes, we tend to go in phases where we have new favourites here and there and we binge on them a little bit. That might sound unconventional, but we’ve actually found that this has helped us learn all kinds of different techniques, which makes us much more diverse crafters! Lately, our number one crafting love has been working with ribbons, so we’ve been keeping our eyes peeled for awesome DIY ribbon projects that we’ve never tried before.

If you’re feeling just as interested in the idea of making awesome ribbon crafts as we have been, if not more, here are 15 of the very best ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration and guidance!

1. Advanced satin ribbon floral wall hanging


Are you actually quite experienced indeed in working with ribbon and you’re also the kind of patient person who adores very delicate and detailed crafts? In that case, we think you just might be the perfect person to give this stunning floral ribbon wall hanging outlined step by step on Vinni’s Craft Ideas a try! They outlined the instructions for gathering and pinching the ribbon just right to make all the cute little flowers.

2. Custom gift ribbons


Were you actually searching for ribbon crafts in hopes that you’d come across something nice and decorative that you can not only share with others but that’s also kid-friendly enough to make with your little ones? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Kid Spot made these customized gift ribbons that they hand decorated with simple markers or felt pens!

3. DIY ribbon sensory box for babies


When our kids were very little, they’d get their tiny fingers into essentially anything within their reach. While we loved that they were exploring and learning about function and texture, we were also constantly paranoid that they’d get into something they shouldn’t and hurt themselves. That’s why we thought this ribbon based sensory box craft outlined with all kinds of cool, creative detail on Simple Fun for Kids was such a good idea! The ribbons give your baby all kinds of things to pull on and fiddle with in a way that’s educational and safe.

4. Fun ribbon wands


Like our kids, are your kids always the most enthusiastic about crafting when you’re helping them make something that they can continue to use or play with once the DIY process is finished? In that case, we have a feeling you’ll have just as much success as we did with this fantastic tutorial from Alpha Mom that teaches you nice and simply how to make a ribbon wand like the kind a rhythmic gymnast might use! Our kids have been twirling with theirs ever since we helped them make some last week.

5. Wire and ribbon rainbow cloud


Maybe you’re the kind of person who loves making DIY wall art and you love the idea of using ribbons in that process but you’re just not sure that the floral ribbon wall hanger we showed you earlier on our list is quite the choice for you? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Dream a Little Bigger made this colourful but still minimalist looking rain cloud and rainbow using silver crafting wire and differently coloured ribbons!

6. Curly ribbon hair bows


When you started thinking about the idea of making something from ribbons, was the idea of creating your very own hair ribbons the very first thing that came to mind? In that case, we think you simply must take a look at how She Knows created this lovely, colourful hair ribbon that really adds some bounce to any hairstyle! Their tutorial shows you how to curl and layer it perfectly.

7. Motor skills ribbon pull board


Are you actually still feeling quite intrigued by the sensory play box we showed you a little earlier but your baby is slightly older and more interested in sitting, standing, and climbing now, so you’re looking for something even more interactive but still along those lines? In that case, we think you might get along a little better with something like this tutorial from Still Playing School that shows you how to create a larger standing ribbon pull board that’s great for working on motor activity.

8. Dancing ribbon rings


Were you actually pretty intrigued by the concept of making something like the ribbon wand we showed you earlier but you can’t help wondering whether you might make a version that involves even more ribbon than what you saw there? In that case, we’d be willing to bet that these awesome rainbow dancing ribbon rings outlined step by simple step on Buggy and Buddy might be right up your alley!

9. Easy ribbon and button headband


Are you actually still thinking about how much you liked the idea of making some kind of adorable ribbon based hair accessory but you’re just not sure that the curly concept we showed you a little earlier on our list will actually stay fastened in your child’s hair? Then perhaps you’d get along a little better with something like this adorable ribbon and button hairband outlined nice and simply on Craft Passion!

10. Ribbon and button elastic bookmarks


If you’re going to put in all the time and effort it takes to make something from scratch using ribbons, would you actually rather create something a little more practical that you might use more often, maybe even on a daily basis? In that case, we’d totally encourage you to take a look at how Sparkles of Sunshine used ribbon, small hair ties, and cute heart buttons to create these stretchy bookmarks that will hold your page in your novel very well indeed (and look cute doing it).

11. Popsicle stick and ribbon weaving looms


Are you the kind of DIY enthusiast who adores doing weaving based crafts and projects to the point that you’re hoping to get your kids involved in learning how to do so as well? Then we think you’ll really appreciate the way Buggy and Buddy used popsicle sticks, string, and a basket of short ribbon pieces to make a beginner’s weaving activity that’s totally child friendly!

12. DIY Kanzashi beetles from satin ribbon


Just in case you’re actually still scrolling through our list looking for something a little more challenging and that will require a little more time and concentration but you’re not so sure that the floral wall hanging really appeals to you, here’s a fantastic ribbon and beading alternative for your consideration! Creativities guides you step by careful step through the process of making these impressive and delicate looking Kanzashi beetles from smooth satin and seed beads.

13. Plastic bottle and curled ribbon flower vase


Of course, there are all kinds of ribbon out there and satin ones aren’t the only kind you can make really cool things with! Just in case you’re also interested in using the plastic gift ribbon you’ve had stashed away for far too long, here’s a tutorial that shows you how to upcycle that and a plastic bottle! Get the full details for making this layered ribbon floral vase on Art and Craft.

14. DIY satin ribbon and pearl flowers


Whether you’re making them with the intention of turning them into hair clips, magnets, clothing embellishments, or something else entirely, these adorable satin ribbon and pearl flowers outlined in clear detail on Srujana TV are something we think any floral craft lover and ribbon enthusiast should try their hand at!

15. Ribbon scrap and branch wall hanging


Just in case you’re still scrolling through our list hoping to find some kind of beautiful ribbon base wall hanging to make but none of the options we’ve shown you have quite kept your attention yet, here’s an awesome alternative that’s great if you have all different kinds of pretty, delicate, and neutrally coloured ribbons to work with! Take a better look at Life is A Party to see how they used satin, canvas, and lace ribbon tied to a branch to make a wall hanging that’s beautifully Boho chic!

Have you made other kinds of fantastic ribbon crafts that you were very happy with indeed but that you don’t see here on our list? Tell us all about what you created and how you did it or link us to photos of your finished work in the comments section!


Knitting Gorgeous Patterns: 15 Beautiful Ribbon Embroidery Designs

Sure, we could always take on a particularly advanced lace knitting pattern or try our hand at a much more intricate embroidery design than we’re used to, adding beads to keep things exciting. But for some reason we’ve just been obsessed with the idea of learning a new skill instead! We’d still like to keep things in the handicrafts and needlework department though, which limits our options a little bit. Imagine how excited we were, then, when stumbled upon the world of ribbon embroidery!

Just in case you’re as intrigued as we were by the stunning concept of ribbon embroidery, here are 15 of the most beautiful and inspiring patterns we’ve come across so far!

1. Embroidery hoop and ribbon florals


Perhaps this is going to be your very first ribbon embroidery project and you’re looking for tips and tricks for making it as easy on yourself as possible? Well, one of the biggest challenges we ran into in the beginning of our exploits in this department was keeping whatever we were embroidering still and stretched so that we could make our pattern neatly, evenly, and with relative ease. At first, we experienced a lot of knotting and wrinkling that really got in our way! That’s why we were so grateful to find out that the same embroidery hoops we used for cross stitching are helpful here too! See what we mean in more detail on My Crafts.

2. Spiralled ribbon rosettes


Have you been dabbling in ribbon embroidery for a little while now and you’re actually mostly on the hunt for new, simple techniques to try out so you can make the prettiest images possible? Then we absolutely think you should take a look at the way Leisha’s Galaxy made these beautiful little blossoms! They guide you through the process of using ribbon to make little looping leaves and spiralled rosettes that stand out wonderfully from your canvas.

3. Pretty ribbon chandelier


Now that you’ve looked at a couple of different designs are you feeling like perhaps you’re in over your head with the whole embroidery idea, since you’ve actually never really worked with ribbons before, period? Maybe you’re actually looked for an introductory ribbon craft that you can do with your kids so you can slowly start leading them towards learning how to do ribbon embroidery just like you. In that case, perhaps this cute little ribbon chandelier idea would make a good starter craft until you (or your kids) are ready for something a little more difficult. See how it’s done on This Girl’s Life. 

4. Silk ribbon embroidery with pearl bead detailing


No matter what kind of textile or needle based craft we’re doing, we can’t help but feel like adding a bit of sparkle and pizzazz to a project every once in a while is a great idea. It keeps us interested and it’s also often a little more difficult to do, so we really appreciate the basics and simplicity of the regular designs we’re used to when we go back to them afterwards. This stunning pearl and ribbon embroidery idea featured on Pinterest is the perfect example of what we mean! We adore the way they replaced some of the rosettes in their pattern that would normally have been made of ribbon as well.

5. Silk and ribbon embroidered pillow cover


If you’re going to go to the trouble of creating an absolutely stunning hand embroidered piece, would you rather create that pattern on something that you made by hand entirely from scratch, so you feel really satisfied at the end of the project? Then we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Euphoria Craftwork sewed themselves a beautiful silk pillowcase and embroidered flowers into that using ribbon.

6. Ribbon embroidered flowers with chiffon petals


Did we really catch your attention when we started talking about different embroidery embellishment ideas that have some texture and will stand out from whatever you’re working on in a really pretty way, but you simply cannot stand working with beads? Well, we think they’re great, but we can totally understand how some people might find them a little too finicky to be enjoyable. Perhaps this idea for using small pieces of chiffon to create fun textured flowers would be a little more up your alley. Get the full tutorial for making these from Elvin Kurdela.

7. Looped layered ribbon roses


Were you pretty intrigued by the idea of making small roses out of ribbon but you can’t help but feel like you know you’ll want to make bigger, more dramatic roses the moment you’ve finished the little ones because you really just love the idea that much? Well, start with the little ones just to say you did and once you’re finished, here’s a backup design from Arts and Crafts Club that will guide you through the process of making bigger ones! We love the layering technique they used to really give the roses body and volume, just like the real thing.

8. Silk ribbon hydrangeas


Just because you’re using a technique that works well and looks good on fabric doesn’t mean you have to create things like pillow cases and textured cross stitch style pieces! We happen to think that ribbon embroidery is a beautiful enough technique that it could easily be displayed on the wall like art. That’s why we were so happy to find this awesome canvas wall piece created by WN. They show you how to capture the beauty of hydrangeas using silk ribbons.

9. Ruffled roses with twisted ribbon stems


Similarly to the way knitting patterns often combine different stitches and stitch patterns in on design or garment, ribbon embroidery can actually do the same thing! This stunning rose wall piece outlined on Needle Work is the perfect example of what we mean. They show you step by step how to create fluffy looping petals and how to twist your ribbon tighter in order to make lines for the stems.

10. Ribbon embroidered and hand pearled pin cushion


Perhaps you’re actually an extremely experienced needlepoint artist who has worked with all kinds of materials before and doesn’t feel intimidated by ribbons at all, so you’re looking for a pattern that’s much more advanced than what we’ve shown you so far? In that case, we absolutely think you’ll appreciate the beauty of this hand embroidered pin cushion made with ribbons and pearled beads. We can’t get over how stunning the tiny, differently coloured blossoms look in shapes that mimic all different types of real life flowers! Get the full details of how to make each one on Lorna Bateman Embroidery.

11. Plush backed and painted ribbon embroidery with a frame


Do you find that you’re most interested in learning new techniques when you’re able to combine them with other kinds of art that you love creating as well? Then we think we’ve finally found the perfect idea for you! Crafty Attic shows you how to embroider a beautiful flower with awesomely unfolding leaves, each made from ribbon. Then they show you how to hand paint a lovely vase right on the canvas you just embroidered before you frame it!

12. Ribbon embroidered handkerchiefs


Have you always been the kind of person who loves sharing your artistic skills with your friends and family by giving them lovely little handmade gifts, so you’re always collecting ideas for very small things that you can make a few of without overworking yourself? Well, there’s no reason that ribbon embroidery can’t be one of the things you share with your loved ones! We completely adore these cheerful sunflower handkerchiefs hand embroidered using a pattern from Elvin Kurdela.

13. Ribbon embroidered Valentines


Did we really catch your attention when we started talking about simple ribbon embroidery crafts that your kids might be able to try so they can make beautiful things right alongside you, but your kids are actually a little bit older and you think the ribbon chandelier idea we showed you earlier on our list might be a little too simple even for them? Then here’s an adorable idea that’s easy, cute, and lets them share their skills, just like you love doing! Too Crewel shows you how to twist ribbon around itself as you embroider very simple shapes like X’s and hearts to make a lovely Valentine’s Day card (or any greeting card for a loved one, if you ask us).

14. Glass covered ribbon embroidery tea tray


Have you recently created a beautiful ribbon embroidery piece that you’re actually really proud of an you’re looking for a way to show it off that will actually let people see it up close rather than just hanging it on the wall? We love that idea, but we also like the idea of keeping our handmade things protected so they don’t get ruined. That’s why this stunning ribbon embroidery tea tray idea featured on Elvin Kurdela is the perfect compromise! They show you how to make a lovely floral pattern but also encase it behind glass like it’s framed, even though you’ll be able to use the tray whenever you please.

15. Ribbon embroidery on felt


Rather than finding ribbon embroidery patterns that your kids can make themselves, would you rather find something cute that you can make for your kids? We love that idea too, but we also like the idea of making sure it’s something the kids can actually play with, rather than just staring at it while it hangs on their wall. That’s why we thought this ribbon embroidered felt play set created by Fairy Fox was so incredibly adorable! They show you how to make tiny glasses and a whole pretend key lime pie with it’s own lovely box from scratch, as well as how to make it undoubtedly the prettiest toy your child has.


15 Dried Flower Crafts that Make Great Fall Decor

Recently, we felt a little surge of inspiration when we saw the way the flowers in our garden were beginning to dry in the chilly morning weather, reminding us of stunning art pieces and handcrafted decor we’ve seen before that was also made of dried flowers. Naturally, being the avid crafters that we are, we scooped up what flowers were left, dried them properly, and began a hunt for good, autumn themed ideas that we could use our newly dried blossoms to make! Sure, we’re sad to see our precious summer plants fall away with the warm winds, but a new DIY project always helps us appreciate any situation.

1. Pressed flower shadow box


In your opinion, does the beauty of pressed flowers speak for itself enough that you don’t feel the need to really dress it up too much? Then perhaps you’d prefer to just arrange your flowers in a way that displays their beauty as well as possible in order to brighten the place up a little with a reminder of warmer days throughout the fall! We adore the way Design Sponge put theirs inside a pristine looking white shadow box.

2. Fall pressed flower canvas


Are you very intrigued indeed by the idea of making some kind of beautiful floral wall art with your pressed flowers, but you’d rather not separate your viewers from the flowers by glass because you think it feels impersonal? Then perhaps you’d prefer to do a little bit of dried flower and canvas decoupage, just like Homedit did here! They show you how to carefully seal all of your flowers to the canvas just as you’ve placed them, so the edges don’t lift and peel.

3. Framed pressed leaves and fall poem


Have you actually found that you’re too late in the season where you live to find flowers for pressing or drying, so the best you can do is pretty leaves? Well, given that it is fall, we’d say that’s not such a bad thing! There are hundreds of lovely projects you can make with dried fall leaves, but one of our favourites has always been this printed poem idea from 5 Minutes for Mom. Their tutorial suggests surrounding the words to your favourite autumn prose with some dried leaves in different shapes, sizes, and colours and framing the whole piece.

4. Dried fall flower letters


Now, we do understand that this particular photo shows a project that has been made with faux flowers made of silk, rather than dried ones, but we’re pleased to tell you that we actually reimagined this project as being a dried flower one and it worked like a charm! We were fortunate enough to have a large garden hanging onto its last days by the time our inspiration struck us, so we saved as many blossoms as we could, dried them properly, and followed Raddest Mom‘s tutorial beyond the flower type to make this beautifully embellished monogram wall hanger happen.

5. Dried flower wooden coasters


If you’re going to make lovely, outdoor inspired art with your dried flowers to bring a little bit of colour to the room as fall rolls in, would you rather make something that’s a little bit practical as well as being decorative? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how The Crafted Life created these stunning homemade coasters from thin, evenly cut branch sections, using dried and pressed flower decoupage techniques to affix the flower smoothly enough on the surface that the coasters will hold a drink flat and steady.

6. Dried leaf and flower bird art


Now that we’ve talked about both dried flower and dried leaf art in one place, are you finding yourself having trouble choosing between the two because they’re both so beautiful? Well, what if we told you that there’s actually a stunning way to combine them such that you wouldn’t have to choose one or the other at all? We’d definitely suggest taking a look at the way Of Design used both dried leaves and flowers to create this fantastically beautiful mural of a bird sitting on blossoming branches. Feel free to recreate their design for your own home or take the idea and make it your own in order to create other designs using the same technique!

7. Dried flower and leaf stained glass


Have you actually been scrolling through our list still hoping to come across some kind of autumn worth dried flower project that your kids can not only get in on, but perhaps actually try creating on their own? Then we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Learn to Grow helped their little ones created this stained glass inspired art  that preserves dried flowers and leaves with some bright hues between two pieces of wax paper.

8. Dried flower and autumn wheat wreath


Have you actually got quite a collection of dried flowers, leaves, and other plants that, when bundled all together, remind you of harvest season, but you’ve had trouble deciding what to make of them? Well, if you’ve never made an authentic fall wreath before, then we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Nouba made this fantastically beautiful door wreath very carefully, without breaking or crumbling a single delicately dried piece.

9. Painted dried flower jars


Are you actually a little bit of a beginner when it comes to DIY and crafting techniques, so you’ve been scrolling through and admiring all of the options we’ve shown you but you haven’t quite decided which ones you think you’re capable of yet? In that case, perhaps you’ve prefer something much simpler that will still help you add the delicacy of dried flowers to your fall decor! Take a look at how easily What’s Ur Home Story did it by placing branches with little dried buds on them in emptied, cleaned mason jars.

10. Dried country flower bouquet in a grater


Have you actually already got the last floral bouquet you bought of the summer hung properly to dry, nice and carefully, but now you’re looking for a creative way to display the flowers that will contribute to a fall theme and your already slightly country chic and down home aesthetic? In that case, we’d absolutely encourage you to take a look at how easily The Flower Patch made this lovely side table or centre piece by tying a gingham ribbon around a cheese grater and placing their dried bouquet right in the top!

11. Dried fall flower pumpkin vase


Have we got you thinking now about different ways to make “vases” out of all kinds of fall inspired things in order to give your dried flower bouquet a home, but you’re just not sure the upcycled cheese grater idea really fits your home’s aesthetic? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how A Pumpkin & A Princess transformed a pumpkin into a home for their flowers instead! The steps are simple, simply cut out the top (and clear the guts out if the pumpkin is real rather than plastic), set the flowers in the hole, and arrange them until they sit precisely how you please.

12. Corn husk flowers


Have you been feeling a little bit torn between using dried flowers or stretching beyond that theme and using other kinds of dried fall plants instead? Well, we have a feeling you just might find this particular tutorial outlined step by step on Creative Khadija rather intriguing indeed! Instead of just drying flowers and making things with the delicate results, their tutorial shows you how to weave flower shapes from strips of corn husks and let those dry in beautiful shapes. We actually got a little bit obsessed with this idea recently and now there’s a small collection of dried corn husk flowers dotted subtly around our house.

13. Burlap and dried flower wreath on a rustic upcycled window


Has the idea that caught your eye most effectively so far definitely been the dried autumn plant wreath, but you can’t help wishing you could think of a way to make it a bit more of a statement piece, rather than just hanging it on your door like usual? Well, if you like a rustic chic aesthetic and you’re willing to commit space to quite a decently sized piece, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Craftberry Bush upcycled a stylishly weathered vintage window frame and mounted their wreath their instead!

14. Dried bouquets on a rustic board hanger


Have you actually been looking at that bouquet we were referring to earlier on our list that you’ve actually already hung to dry with then intention of turning it into something else, but you’re looking at it now and thinking about just how pretty it already is, simply hanging there to dry like that? Well, it sounds to us like you just might be the perfect person to give this fantastic multi-bouquet hanger idea featured step by step on Home Dec a try! We love that they used flowers of all different kinds.

15. Simple dried bouquet in an upcycled colander


Are the plants you’ve chosen to dry actually ones that you can get access to quite a lot of, since they also bloom in the fall? Well, if you rather enjoyed the upcycled grater idea but you’re also kind of debating whether you might want a much larger piece, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Crafts By Courtney chose to display their dried bouquets in an old colander instead.


Celebrate Color: 13 Lovely Things to Make With Ribbons!

When it comes to crafting and diverse DIY projects of all kinds, we’re proud to say that we’ve worked hard on developing a rather large range of skills. Some days, we get very creatively motivated and feel like there’s nothing we can’t make! Every once in a while, however, we come across a technique that we admire very much indeed but that we recognize and acknowledge we’re not actually that skilled in. Ribbon crafting is the perfect example of what we mean!

Just in case you and your kids are as interested in and excited about the idea of making simple, pretty things out of ribbons as our family was, if not more, here are 15 of the most creative designs, ideas, and tutorials we’ve come across in our search so far!

1. Ribbon, button, and hair elastic bookmarks


Besides being avid crafters, are you and your kids also total bookworms? Then maybe you’d have the best time getting creative in a way that combines your favourite things in one place! Sparkles of Sunshine guides you step by step through the process of making good, sold elastic style bookmarks that stay in place well! Thanks to the fact that they’re made from pretty ribbon and cute shaped buttons in coordinating colours, however, these bookmarks still manage to look really pretty while they hold the place you stopped reading at.

2. Washi tape and ribbon wands


Are your kids enthusiastic pretenders with big imaginations who are always pretending to be princesses and ballerinas or to work magic around the house? In that case, we think perhaps the best craft to them would be this adorable washi tape wrapped ribbon wand made in rainbow colours! Becoming Martha shows you how to make this adorable project that’s fun to make and fun to play with, giving your kids double the amusement time.

3. Curled paper and ribbon baby shower wishes


Perhaps the most crafting and DIY creating you do is actually for the events you love hosting and the parties you love throwing for your friends during all kinds of special occasions? Well, just in case you have a baby shower coming up, here’s an adorable activity that you can do with each guest in order to make the new mommy feel very special indeed! The Crafty Mummy shows you how to make little “well wishes” on colourful card stock, cut and folded into a shape that looks like a cute little cloth diaper. On each diaper, they instruct you to leave a little bow embellishment that is, of course, made of ribbon!

4. Beautiful ribbon Kanzashi beetles


Are you actually a little more experienced in ribbon crafting than we talked about at the very beginning of this list, so you’ve been scrolling through hoping to find something a little bit more advanced than some of the ideas we’ve shown you so far? In that case, we have a feeling that something slightly more detailed like these stunning ribbon Kanzashi style beetles might be a little more up your alley! Get the full instructions for making these step by step on Cool Creativity.

5. Plastic bottle and curled ribbon flower vase


Just because you’re crafting with ribbons and using the standard techniques for that doesn’t mean slippery silk ribbons are the only kind you can use! In fact, sometimes it’s even more fun to use plastic gifting ribbons, particularly if you’re working with plastic in the rest of your project as well, just so you can match texture effects. This lovely cut bottle and curled ribbon flowers vase featured on Art and Craft is the perfect example of what we mean.

6. DIY satin ribbon and pearl flowers


Are you actually feeling quite intrigued indeed by the idea of making little floral embellishments out of ribbon, but you’ve been itching to try your hang at ribbon folding and rolling techniques as well? Then we definitely think you should take a better look at how Srujana TV created these lovely ribbon flowers that feature an inner and outer petal all the way around! We love the way they fastened their petals in the middle, nestling a shiny pearled bead right in the centre.

7. Beautiful layered, cinched hair bows


Have ribbons actually always reminded you of pretty hair accessories and styling embellishments because of stories and fairytales that describe princesses and heroines tying ribbons in their hair? In that case, we think you might be very interested indeed in the way Julia DIY folded thick silk ribbons to make ruffles and cinched them in the middle to make a nearly-classic bow shape, but with ribbon loops on either end.

8. Ribbon scrap and branch wall hanging


Despite the fact that you adore crafting with ribbons, are you actually still looking for a way to make something that looks a little more natural because you’ve taken a lot of care to cultivate a sort of rustic chic aesthetic in your home? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Life Is a Party made an absolutely stunning wall hanging by tying strips of silk and lace ribbons around a branch so they hang down in a whimsical way.

9. The perfect paper gift bow


Perhaps you’re actually interested in getting into the world of made your very own fancy gift bows from ribbon because you’ve always been a high quality gift wrapping enthusiast, but you’d rather do a few practice rounds with something a little less expensive before you start trying the looping and folding techniques out with the fancy ribbons you’ve been collecting? In that case, we’d absolutely encourage you to take a look at the way PaperMade created this lovely, multi-layered gift bow from paper! We love the way they give you tips for how working with paper, which has more stiffness and structure, will differ from working with ribbon when you finally decide to give that a try later.

10. Delicate ribbon and seed bead flowers


Did we really catch your attention when we started talking about different ways to make floral ribbon embellishments but you’ve kept on scrolling because you think you’re prefer to make something smaller and slightly more delicate than what you’ve seen so far? Then we think perhaps this cut ribbon shapes and tiny seed beads design outlined step by step on Cut Out and Keep might be a little more up your alley.

11. Loomed ribbon flowers


If you’re going to start putting in the effort and patience that comes with more advanced ribbon techniques like hand embroidery, would you rather make it something that you’ve already tried with other materials, just to give yourself a leg up? Well, if you’ve ever been a yarn crafting enthusiast like we have, then perhaps you’d like to put your yarn looking skills to good use, but with slight, exciting twist! GVSigmini guides you through the process of making beautiful flowers created from very pretty looped combinations using ribbon looming.

12. DIY ribbon flower pens


Despite the fact that you love to make pretty things, would you rather actually create something that has a bit of a practical use as well? In that case, we think perhaps you might get a kick out of the way Living Well Mom used ribbon wrapping techniques, cut shapes, and rhinestones to create a neat, novelty flower pen that will brighten up any afternoon at work! We love the idea of displaying these in a little case filled with marbles so they actually look like flowers sitting on the desk until you pull one out to use it.

13. Twisted ribbon and bow wrapped vase


Perhaps you’ve got some spare lengths of ribbon left over from other crafts and you’ve noticed that the colour goes perfectly with your party decor or the permanent colour scheme in your room? Then maybe a bit of simple embellishment for something you don’t want to alter permanently would be fun for you to try! We love the way HomeTalk wrapped, twisted, and tied a length or thick, pretty ribbon around a crystal vase to make it a little more decorative temporarily.


Beautiful Projects Involving Felt Flowers and Succulents

Maybe because it’s because the summer weather outside is so beautiful and all our gardens are in bloom, but there’s just something with us lately that has us obsessed with making our very own faux flowers! We’ve tried all kinds of ways and loved each one, but we recently came across some tutorials that outlined how to make not only flowers but also succulents out of felt!

Just in case you’re as interested in the idea of making felt flowers and succulents as we were, if not more, here are 15 of the more creative designs we’ve come across so far!

1. Simple baby blue felt succulents

Are you a big fan of the way pastel colour schemes are trending in art, fashion, and interior decor all at once right now and you’ve been reflecting that a lot in your own projects? Well, we actually think this particular project would look great in any colour of felt, but there’s just something very cool and realistic about the baby blue version that you see here? Then check it out in even more detail (regardless of what colour you choose) on The DIY Mommy.

2. Succulents made with textured felt


If you’re going to make your very own faux succulents from scratch, would you actually prefer to make them as realistic looking as possible? Then perhaps using textured felt that’s a little more rough on the surface and a little more green is a better idea for you! This clear, simple tutorial featured on Creative Kin shows you how to make a lovely, realistic looking felt succulent in just a few simple steps.

3. Felt succulents with fern leaves


Now that you’ve practiced making the succulents themselves a couple of times, would you actually like to make a more complete looking plant that has a few other features as well? Then maybe it’s time to start learning how to make felt leaves to go along with your succulent cluster! This tutorial from Lia Griffith shows you how to make long, luscious looking green fern leaves in additional to another simple layered succulent, just in case you want to get all of your steps in one place.

4. Yarn wrapped felt succulent wreath


Now that you’ve actually created all kinds of different succulents in different colours and shapes, are you actually looking for a larger project that you can turn your bunches of succulents into? Well, if you’re a yarn enthusiast in any capacity and have even a small stash to work with, then we have a feeling you might get along very well with this lovely yarn wrapped and felt succulent door wreath outlined step by step on Think Make Share.

5. Mounted felt succulent decor pieces


Are you quite enamoured with the idea of making wall or door mounted felt succulent art but you’re not sure a classically styled wreath really speaks to the rest of your interior decor scheme? Then maybe something smaller and a little more rustic or natural looking would be a little more up your alley! We love the way fLOhRA Design gathered several felt succulents into bunches and mounted them onto stained wooden circles.

6. Felt succulent and flower bouquet


Okay, we acknowledge that this particular bouquet actually contains silk flowers and not felt ones, but there are, in fact, felt leaves in the mix and we actually made a felt bouquet of our own based of The DIY Mommy‘s tutorial. In our version, however, we added a few different styles, shapes, and sizes of succulents in amongst the flowers to give it a more earthy aesthetic. When we followed these steps to make our own flowers using felt instead of silk, however, they turned out even more beautiful than you see here!

7. Vertical felt succulent garden


Do you actually live in a very small apartment indeed so you’re looking for an idea that will help you add some low maintenance greenery to your place while also taking up as little space as possible? Well, we can’t possibly think of a more fitting thing to make for yourself than this vertical felt succulent garden outlined step by step on Lia Griffith! We adore the wide range of handmade succulent types they show you how to create in addition to “planting” and mounting them once you’re done.

8. Boxed felt succulents


Are you actually such a big fan of the boxed felt succulent garden idea we showed you earlier that you can’t help but wonder whether or not there’s actually a way to make it even bigger and better than the skinny ones you saw before? In that case, we have a feeling you would much much prefer this full sized square felt succulent garden idea featured on Apostrophe! Once again, this tutorial shows you how to make a stunning array of succulent types that will impress your friends so much they might not even realize they’re felt at first.

9. Felt flower and hanging leaf mobile


As tempting as the succulents are to make, are you actually still completely obsessed with the idea of felt flowers, since that’s what sparked your love for handcrafted faux plants to begin with? Then we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Lia Griffith created these stunning bell shaped flowers with accompanying leaves and then strung them to a hoop to create an absolutely stunning hanging mobile.

10. Modern felt succulent hoop wreath


Are you actually still thinking about the succulent wreath we showed you earlier because you do enjoy the basic concept but you can’t help but wonder whether there’s a slightly more modernized version you can try because that would suit your interior decor scheme a little better? Then look no further! We absolutely adore this golden hoop and scalloped ribbon wreath and the way Sarah Hearts embellished that with succulents in an asymmetrical way.

11. Artichoke style felt succulents


Are you actually feeling quite particular in your felt succulent making and you’d like to learn how to make the ones that look like artichokes because you think they’d look especially nice in your latest project? In that case, you simply must suggest the way fLOhRA Design created the ones you see in this photo! We love the way they created the same succulent in a few different shades of green because they think it would add depth to any project.

12. Sparkly felt succulent pumpkin centrepiece


Are you the kind of avid crafter who loves making your homemade seasonal decor in advance because you’re very busy with work and kids and you often have to stop projects half way through for a few weeks? Well, we’re much the same, which is why we’re suggesting a fall pumpkin design to you now, even though we’ve just been talking about summer! Lia Griffith shows you how to dip dye a white pumpkin in metallic gold paint, as well as how to arrange a beautiful selection of differently shaped felt succulents and some sparkling gold leaves across the top in order to make a stunning centre piece.

13. Felt succulent and rock garden


Have you actually been scrolling through our list wondering whether there might be another kind of complete faux succulent garden you might make that’s a little more mixed-material and perhaps a little smaller than what you’ve seen so far? Then we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Shaken Together made a stunning little rock “garden” in a singular pot planter! We love the way they nestled one large, well made felt succulent right on top of an array of stones and pebbles.

14. Felt succulent in a miniature leather wrapped planter


If possible, are you actually looking to go even smaller with your felt succulent planter than what we’ve already shown you because you’d really like to keep it on the corner of your desk at work in order to brighten the place up a little bit with greenery but without taking on a real plant that would be more high maintenance? Then perhaps this adorable miniature succulent in a faux leather wrapped planter would be a little more up your alley! See how it’s done in more detail on Lia Griffith.

15. DIY felt poppy flower


Have you actually been scrolling through our list and thinking about how you can’t wait to try some of these great felt DIY projects in the future but that you might need something a little simpler for now because you’re actually quite new to crafting in the grand scheme of things? Then perhaps starting with a simple, singular flower would be a better idea for you! Mommy Like Woah guides you step by step through the process of making a lovely layered poppy flower complete with a felt centre and leaves, and a stem made of green crafting wire.

Beyond Spring: 15 Flower Arrangements That Will Inspire Your Own DIY Bouquets

Buying flowers for your family and friends is a great way to celebrate a special occasion, or even just to make them feel special on a normal day. Sometimes it’s just nice to have flowers around the house for yourself! However, unless you visit a boutique florist or pay additional prices, the arrangement of your flowers might not be as pretty or fancy as you had in mind. If you’re a DIY enthusiast, however, then that’s no problem at all!

Check out these 15 easy DIY flower arrangement inspirations that will have you reorganizing and rearranging your next bouquet for the better the second it’s in your hands!

1. DIY submerged flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYDIY submerged flowers

Sometimes buying yourself just a few little blossoms is a great way to brighten up your space and your day. If you like pretty, unconventional things, you need to see Momtastic‘s submerged flower idea! Choose glasses that are the right size for each flower you bought and follow the instructions to weight each one down with flat crafting marbles.

2. Pedestal and foam flower arrangements

VIEW IN GALLERYDIY Pedestal and foam flower arrangements

If you have a beautiful, wide stand that you want to turn into an arrangement but that doesn’t hold flowers in place well, all is not lost! Your local crafting store will have foam cubes design specifically for arranging flowers. Put on in the centre of the stand and poke the end of the flower stems into it. Arrange them all the way around until the foam no longer shows and voila!

3. Teapot flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYRefreshing Teapot flowers

Rather than using a traditional vase to hold your flowers, why not make things look a little more vintage? Placing your blossoms in a teapot is one of the easiest ways to get that look! We love these little yellow flowers in a stark white teapot on Pinterest.

4. Glass bottles and scrapbooking paper

VIEW IN GALLERYGlass bottles and scrapbooking paper

Sometimes the vase is just as cute as the flowers, especially if you make it yourself! Find a clean, empty glass bottle that fits a few stems through the opening and neck. Before you put the flowers in, cut a strip of pretty patterned scrapbooking paper and tape it in place with washi tape. Tie it around the middle with a piece of jute string or twine for detail and pop your blossoms in the top. Check out how Decor 8 made these pretty little bottles!

5. Rainbow water and white flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYRainbow water and white flowers

If you’re looking for a way to brighten up the room but your favourite flowers are simple white ones, you can still incorporate colour in how you display them! We absolutely adore the idea of adding a little bit of food colouring gel to water in a clear glass vase and popping simple white flowers in the top, just like Paper and Cakery did!

6. Foam ball flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYFoam ball flowers

We didn’t realize until we saw this arrangement on Pinterest how pretty it can look to have no vase or container at all! Instead, try sticking the end of each stem into a foam sphere from the craft store so you create a small floral dome that’ll look perfect in the centre of your dinner table!

7. Citrus vase


This floral decor from Pinterest just screams “summer” to us! For a little extra scent on top of the flowers, fill a mason jar with halved lemons and limes and plant your flowers in the middle. Besides smelling great, the arrangement is totally gorgeous!

8. A standing bouquet

VIEW IN GALLERYA standing bouquet

If you’ve chosen flowers with very stiff stems then all you need is a ribbon and a wide glass to make this adorable standing arrangement. Tie the flowers near the very bottom of the blooms and spread the stems out so the bottoms are wide enough to support the flowers on all sides and keep them standing, just like this cute bouquet from Pinterest.

9. Cocktail flower

VIEW IN GALLERYCocktail flower

We love the stylish appearance of this adorably simple arrangement on Style Me Pretty! Trim the stem close to the flower’s head so it’s short enough to fit in the shallow cup and let it stick out the top like a decorative cocktail drink.

10. Flower monograms

VIEW IN GALLERYFlower monograms

This particular craft from Parcel Post is actually made with silk flowers, but we think it would be absolutely beautiful with real blooms for a special occasions! Find hollow chunky letters, use hot glue to fill them with green plant foam, and stick the flower stems in the foam so they fill up the letters completely.

11. Candy arrangement

VIEW IN GALLERYColorful Candy arrangement

We love this idea from Pinterest for Easter or kids’ birthdays in the springtime! Find a clear vase, fill it with colourful jelly beans, and plant the stems of your flowers right in the centre.

12. Spray painted mason jar planters

Whether you choose to include the little bunny rabbit silhouette or whether you prefer solid colours, this spray painted jar idea makes for a cheerful and stylish arrangement. Check out how it’s done on The CSI Project!

VIEW IN GALLERYBeautiful Teacup flowers

You might think tulips and patterned teacups would make a very busy looking combination, but we’re in love with the look! Check out how Slim Paley added a vintage flair this way by placing purple tulips into teacups of contrasting colours!

14. Chalkboard message herb gardens


Painting a few simple planting pots with chalkboard paint is an easy way to customize your own display. Label them with the types of herbs planted, write inspirational quotes that you’d like to see all day, or give them to someone as a gift with a loving message message on them like these ones from Pinterest!

15. Upcycled graphic tin can planters

VIEW IN GALLERYGraphic tin can planters

This great tutorial by Home Talk shows you how to create adorable vintage looking planters simply by pasting images you like onto large tin cans. We love the homey effect such a simple arrangement gives the entire room, as thought you picked the flowers straight from the garden outside and grabbed the nearest tin to display their beauty!


15 Flower Crown Designs That Will Inspire You to Make Your Own

Whether you’re getting ready for a summer wedding, planning your looks for your next music festival in the sun, or you’re just really in love with the style, flower crowns are a gorgeous trend. Because they’re hot right now you can find them in most accessory stores, but you already know we’re big fans of making things ourselves! Your flower crown might be made of material and silk flowers or you might go all out and use fresh flowers and green leaves.

Check out these 15 inspiration shots of differently styled flower crowns to get your creative senses buzzing. Whether you’re gluing the blossoms to a hairband or wrapping fresh sprigs to a ribbon with crafting wire, your flower crown will look just as gorgeous as any of these!

1. Deep pink roses and berry pink lips

One of the best ways to incorporate your flower crown into your look, particularly if your outfit is monochromatic, is to match the blossoms to your lipstick. A deep pink flower looks beautiful with a berry coloured pout!

2. Dusty orange blossoms

VIEW IN GALLERYDusty orange blossoms

(Photo by We Heart It)

Very lightly coloured flowers, like this soft, dusty orange are perfect for a whimsical summer look. Try weaving long hair up into the back of the hairband you’ve built your flower crown on for a bohemian princess effect.

3. Green ivy with white flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYGreen Iivy with white flowers

If you’re looking for a slightly more unconventional flower crown, this one’s for you! Simple white blossoms make it look whimsical and feminine, but the larger incorporation of green ivy sets this style apart form other ones and makes it look more understated and natural.

4. Small flowers and a hair braid

VIEW IN GALLERYSmall flowers and a hair braid

(Photo by Lindsey Shaun)

Speaking of understated but gorgeous looks, this style that incorporates tiny blossoms and baby’s breath makes a different kind of flower crown all together. Instead of gluing or wiring flowers to a hairband, use a braid as the “crown” and work the flowers and sprigs directly into the hair.

5. Loose baby’s breath

VIEW IN GALLERYLoose baby's breath

Do you love the way that the baby’s breath in the previous picture looks so much that you wish for more? Instead of using it as solely an accent flower in your flower crown, try making it the centre of attention!

6. Thistles with white blossoms

VIEW IN GALLERYGreens with few blossoms

(Photo by Ciara Richardson)

Here’s another one for your unconventional flower crown category! Making it with thistles gives a stronger, less whimsical look but adding a few white blossoms among the purple blooms keeps things soft enough for a wedding or special event.

7. Silk butterfly crown

VIEW IN GALLERYSilk butterfly crown

Okay, so technically this look isn’t a flower crown, but it reminded us so much of the same whimsical looks that flower crowns often achieve. Shake things up a bit by building a crown out of material or silk butterflies the way you’d normally use flowers.

8. Blossoms and lace

VIEW IN GALLERYBlossoms and lace

(Photo by Maria Mack)

If you’re looking for an even prettier look than a flower crown is already going to give you by default, try combining your flowers with lace! Let the lace run along your hairline or rest lightly against your forehead for a lovely, intricate look.

9. Matching the bouquet

VIEW IN GALLERYMatching the bouquet

(Photo by Julie Siddi)

If you’re creating a flower crown specifically for a wedding, then one of the best ways of incorporating it into the look is to match it with the bouquet. The balance between the two bunches of flowers looks absolutely beautiful in pictures!

10. Flower crown tucked under

VIEW IN GALLERYFlower crown tucked under

(Photo by Delbarr Moradi)

Just because it’s called a flower “crown” doesn’t mean you have to wear it like a tiara! Try nestling your blossoms underneath your updo so the bun rests lightly on top of them instead. The look is unique but still classic enough for timeless pictures.

11. Blossoms with herbs

VIEW IN GALLERYBlossoms with herbs

(Photo by Michelle Boyd)

Many flowers together can be a little overwhelming looking, especially if you have slight features. In order to get that same volume in your crown without letting it take over your look, consider weaving in some herb plants instead of big floral leaves.

12. Cascading flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYCascading flowers

(Photo by MW Foto)

Why not consider some pretty asymmetry in your look? Letting a few flowers hang down on one sides looks beautiful, especially with some more voluminous gathered blossoms to balance the look out on the other side.

13. Pink cherry blossoms

VIEW IN GALLERYPink cherry blossoms

(Photo by Serenity Crystal)

A simple ring of pink cherry blossoms is the perfect look for a summer music festival. It’s pretty, but it’s low maintenance and easy to make. It also won’t distract from the outfit you’ve put together!

14. Fluffy white flowers

VIEW IN GALLERYFluffy white flowers

(Photo by Laura Murray)

Sometimes big is the way to go! Large, fluffy flowers look beautiful with hair that has some volume but not enough to battle with the flowers for space. Choosing white ones looks very clean and well put together.

15. Asymmetrical berries and blooms

VIEW IN GALLERYAsymmetrical berries and blooms

If your motto is “go big or go home”, then you might be looking for a little something more than simple flowers. Adding berries to a huge blossom is a great way to mix colours and draw the eye to your face.

Twine is a wonderfully versatile craft material that you can use to hang mobiles, string ornaments, wrap vases and bottles, tie packages, make banners, and form pompoms – and these are just a few of its countless uses.
If you already own a Bow and flower maker tool, then you probably already tried making twine flowers. But in fact, for these little cuties, you don’t really need a special tool.
Making twine flowers is something you can do with older children, those who are already quite dexterous and able to sit down for long periods. If you think the process may be too tedious for the kiddos, set up the cardboard-and-pin guides beforehand and immediately engage them in looping the twine.
Use these twine flowers as gift or loot bag toppers, greeting card accents, scrapbook embellishments, and party decor. Make several to form wreaths, table arrangements, and wall art. The possibilities are endless!

Materials you will need :
Twine (jute or cotton)
Cardboard (you can also use old boxes, illustration board, Styrofoam, etc.)
Multicolor pins
Craft needle
String (you can also use ribbon, cord, a strip of fabric, etc.)
