401  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Tutorial: fabric plumeria flower on: October 07, 2015 02:33:33 PM

10 minutes- a couple hours waiting time while drying- 10 minutes

Materials needed for one flower:
3'9" white florist wire (thin wire wrapped with paper) - about 9 inches for one petal
a tiny scrap of fabric - about 6 square inches
fabric glue - I used original tacky glue
white stem wrap tape- optional but will look nicer

some plastic to let your flower dry on it

How to:

Cut 5 pieces of 9" wire. Bend in half.

Wrap the middle around two fingers or around a round tube, the 2 fl oz bottle of glue works just fine.

Remove by sliding off. This is what you get.

Shape it like an oval with slightly pointy ends to create the plumeria petals. Keep the shape flat. Make 5 shapes, one for each petal. You could make any shape and flower that way.

Check the shapes are flat and touch the fabric all around the edge. A tiny space between fabric and wire is OK if you fill it with glue.
Apply fabric glue all around the edge. No need to be very neat, the glue will dry clear.
Leave it to dry completely. This might take a couple hours, depending on your weather.
Once dry, cut the fabric around the shape, thus creating a petal.
Bend the petals slightly.

Put the five petals together, overlapping a little. Twist all the wires together or just one around the others, this will create the stem. Arrange the petals evenly to create the flower.

Wrap stem wire tape around the stem.

Now, you can put it behind your ear and go dance the hula or just enjoy a tropical drink.

It looks like a lot of work. I would never finish it.
It's very neatly done too.

They are adorable.
Sometimes, one wants to find Halloween stuff not gory or scary.
These are just perfect for any home. Too bad they didn't fly to mine!

I like how you used natural stuff: wood and dyed yarn. It has a comforting, earthy look.
