Scrappy No-Sew Flower Tutorial

You may have seen this sweet little flower on my St. Pat's wreath here, and again on my framed printables here.
Now you get to make one too-without even having to find your needle! You will need to heat up the old glue gun.

Step 1: Gather materials.
fun fabric (I used cotton, but it might be cool with others, too!)-about a 1/4 yd or so. 
scissors
hot glue
pears or other embellishments for middle of flower.
Step 2: Cut spiral


Cut a large circle out of your fabric and then cut it into a spiral. Start on the outside and just keep cutting around until you get to the middle. Leave a little circle of fabric to start your flower on.

Step 3: Fold, fold, fold, scrunch, glue.

Starting at the "middle of the spiral" after the circle of fabric you left, fold your fabric like a fan (4-5 folds) and put hot glue on the bottom of your folds and place on circle of fabric.  Hold for a few seconds until it dries completely or the folds will come undone. 
Repeat all the way around in a circle formation to make a flower shape. Once you complete the
first row, you will begin gluing the folds ("ruffles") to the backs of the previous ruffles. Be sure to glue the new ones about half-way down the back of the previous row so the ruffles stay bouncy and not too stiff. I  made 3 rows.
Once all the fabric is folded and glued and your flower is of a desired size, cut off any excess fabric not used if necessary. You can also trim up some of the ruffles if they are uneven.
Warning: Be careful in this step! I burned my fingers a few times on the glue! Just watch where your hands are going.
Step 4: Re-make the middle if necessary.
 Somehow, when I make these I usually mess up the middle of the flower as I'm making the second and third layers to where it's flat and lifeless. If yours looks like that, too, or it just needs a little something more, make a quick tiny version of the flower and simply glue it in the middle of the flower you just made.

Step 5: Add embellishments.
Glue embellishments to the middle. I always think I'll use something else besides pearls, but they are just so pretty I can't help but use them.

I also made a burlap one with only 2 layers of ruffles instead of 3.
Step 6:Display it or wear it!
Attach your flower to a wreath to spring-ify your door.

Add it to a frame.

Attach your flower to a sweater.

or your purse.
What will you do with yours?
