Lisa: Have your mom feel extra special on Mother’s Day by crafting her a beautiful corsage to wear. This fabric flower is easy to make by taking advantage of BasicGrey’s fabric tape along with wire. Here’s how to make your own:

 

You’ll need fabric tape and vintage buttons, along with a hot glue gun, embroidery floss, thin wire, pinback, and scissors.

Cut eight 2-inch strips of fabric tape and four 1.75-inch sections of thin wire. Peel the backing off of one strip of fabric tape and lay one section of wire down the middle as shown. Top this with another piece of fabric tape to seal. Round off the corners with scissors to make a petal shape. This makes a group of four strips.

 

Repeat this with 2.5 and 3 inch groups of fabric strips using wire slightly shorter with each as above.

Stack each group (longest to shortest as shown). Thread a button with embroidery floss and tie around stack centered tightly. Beginning in the back, pull each petal out evenly spaced using the wired bodies to curl petals up.

Hot glue hand-cut leaves to a circle of cardstock and hot glue to the bottom of the flower for a finished back. Hot glue a pinback centered on back for wearing.

 

Happy Mother’s Day!
