Beautiful twist and roll flowers ~ So easy and to die for!

There is just something about beautiful accessories that gets me excited.  I absolutely could not live my life without them.  I have recently gained this new love for fabric flowers.  I know they are everywhere these days but, I just love them!  They can be fun, whimsical and absolutely beautiful.  There are so many millions of options and honestly, the sky is the limit.
 You really can't do it wrong but, here's a quick tutorial on these beautiful twist and roll flowers that I just made, to go on our amazing new ITH headband.  

Take a strip of fabric or ribbon.
(I used a piece of chiffon 2" wide x40" long)

Tie a knot in one end.

Hold on to the knot end with one hand and start twisting the other end.

All you do now is wrap the long tail of fabric around the knot as you twist it.  There is no right or wrong way to do it.  Every 1/2" or so you will need to add a little dot of fabric glue or hot glue to hold the fabric in place as you wrap.  You can wrap as tightly or as loosely as you want.
This pink chiffon fabric flower was wrapped pretty loosely and I love how soft and fluffy it turned out.

This is what it looks like once you have wrapped the fabric all the way around (gluing as you go)
It is perfect just like this OR...

I added a few pearls to the center using fabri-tac.

So pretty :)

Here's another one I made using some 2" wide Organza ribbon.  This ribbon was wired so I slid the wires out because I didn't need them.

I wrapped this one very tightly to show the difference.

Once you reach the end of the ribbon or fabric, just flip the flower over and glue the end to the back so it isn't visible.

Beautiful, any way you wrap it!

The best part is you can use any fabric you like.  
I love how the lace flower turned out, burlap is fun too!

They are so quick, easy and absolutely gorgeous!  Not to mention, big or small, every girl looks a little more beautiful when they are accessorized.

So go get your craft on and start accessorizing!!
