Tulle Pouf Flowers

This is probably the easiest of all the fabric flowers.  Once again I started with my trusty roll of tulle ribbon.

1. Start with a long section of tulle ribbon. In one hand, fold/loop ribbon back and forth at least 10 or 12 times.  The length of your loops will determine the final size of your flower.  Four to six inches would be a good place to start.

2. Find the mid-point of the fold and pinch together. With a piece of heavy-duty piece of thread, tie the middle tightly.

3. With scissors, cut the loops of tulle and fluff the layers.

4. Lay the pouf flat and find the open center. Flatten with your hand and either sew or glue a button or jewel to the center.

How’s that for a no-sew flower masterpiece!

Happy Flower-making!  Kelly
