DIY | How to Make a Flower Beanie

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

This will work best if the fabric is silk.  I only used 6 circles for this flower because the smallest circle ended up being covered completely by the beads so I left it out.  Make your largest circle as big as you want the finished flower to be. My flower is three inches wide.

A little trick about buying beads: 
Go to Claire's or Icing and buy a beaded bracelet or earrings off the clearance wall in the colors you need.  Much, much cheaper than buying a big pack of way more beads than you need from a craft store.

If you prefer the flower to be permanently attached, then skip the pin and attach the flower directly to the hat.
I'm all about options, so I prefer to keep the flower detachable in case I want to use it later as a lapel pin, hair accessory or attached to a ribbon belt.
