How to make pretty blooms...a blog hop featuring handmade bloom tutorials!


How-to-make-a-pretty-bloom-tutorial4

Hello there friends! The team at Zeus and Zoe have put together a fun little blog hop featuring pretty handmade bloom tutorials. :)  Mine is the topping on a tin box. :)


If you love the look of pretty blooms, why not hop along with us and learn along the way? There are RAKs to be won at every stop [mine is at the very end of this post *winks*]. :)

My bloom is super simple to make. Here are the supplies you require...some trims, pearls, button, fabric scissors, sewing kit and a hot glue gun.

1. Start by pleating your trim and stitching...pulling to create a round shape.
2. When you are happy with the size, stitch the ends together. No worries if your thread can be seen, it would be covered up later.

3. Cut an embroidered bloom from your trim. There are many other alternatives for this layer...you could add a punch out paper bloom or even a layer of tulle.
4. Affix with a hot glue gun.

5. Add pearls with a hot glue gun.
6. Finish with a lovely gold button...mine is from the Zeus and Zoe store of course!

Add it to a tin box and it makes a fabulous handmade gift! :)


Go check out the other pretty bloom tutorials....Dana TatarDenise van DeventerMarivic CliftonNorma GomezRiikka Kovasin, Zeus and Zoe blog and leave some love on each of the blogs by 11.59pm EST on Wednesday 31st July for your chance at each of the RAKs.



Here is my RAK. Just leave a comment on this post. The winner will be announced on Friday August 2. :)
