Shabby Chic Flower

Updated: Jul 2

I enjoy recycling whenever I can !

With this project I was able to do just that!

I know you will have everything you need on hand as well !

The possibilities of using this beautiful Shabby Chic flower is endless!

You will be so pleased with the end result when you create yours!

Supplies you will need

• material main color

• material contrast color or ribbons

• hot glue

• large paper clip or small clothespin

• thin cardboard piece

I used a empty tissue paper roll.

• glitter

• coffee if you want to stain it a little

• scissors

• needle and thread

• bling, buttons or fuzzy wool ball for the center of the flower

Once you gather all your supplies you are ready to begin!

I used a pieces of light weight cotton material

I cut my strip about 4 ft long and about 3 “ high.

The I folded it like this about 5 times ruffly .

Once I was done I drew a half circle like this for a guide for me to cut . It doesn’t have to be perfect.

It should look like this once you get it cut.

I got my needle ready make sure you have a long enough piece of thread on it .

Then just do a slip stitch across the bottom.

Once you are done pull it together like this .

Then sew the ends together!

To make the smaller flower I took some material and I cut 8 pieces about 3”x2” .

I cut a circle from the tissue paper roll .

I folded my material then dropped a little glue to help keep it like this.

Very little just a dot or so .

Then I folded it again and added a little glue again.

I did all 8 . Don’t over think this some of mine are uneven but you really won’t notice it once you are done .

Then I started gluing them on the circle .

Here’s what you should have when you are done.

I cut another circle for the other strips of material I’m adding.

You can use ribbons or material for this part whatever you like better.

I glued them crisscross on my circle then glued it on my big flower!

Then I took my small cream flower and glued it on top!

You should have 3 layers.

Large flower.


Then small flower.

I chose to use this fuzzy wool ball for my center .

I love how this fuzzy wool ball looks in the middle !

You can embellish it whatever way you want .

You can use buttons , some bling what ever you have handy .

I then cut a larger circle .

I used a lid for my pattern.

Choose one that will fit your flower .

I cut a circle to cover the back and it gives a nice spot to add your paper clip.

I just cut a little piece of the tissue paper roll to cover part of the paper clip so it looks more finished on the back .

Here’s how the paper clip looks like .

I love that finished look!

You can also use a small clothespin instead.

I wanted to grunge it up a bit so I used some left over coffee .

I brushed the coffee on … This coffee wasn’t that strong so it’s a light coffee stain effect.

While the petals were somewhat damp I twisted them with my fingers to crinkle them up a bit .

I also added just a little glitter in the center of the flower.

I love the sparkle it gives .

That's it look how beautiful it looks clipped to this lamp !

Instant lamp transformation!

I love ❤️ how these beautiful large flowers turn out!

I'm always so excited to share how to create them with you!
