How to make organdy flowers

Organdie is a stiff, sheer cotton fabric that is a useful material in a variety of crafts. One such craft involves making attractive floral displays out of the sheer fabric. Making organdie flowers at home allows you the creativity to make your own designs, colours and textures whether you're making gifts for loved ones or accessories for your own personal use. A few basic materials and an hour of your time allows you the ability to create striking floral patterns with organdie fabric.

Cut a circle measuring 4 inches in diameter from one organdie fabric square. Repeat this step by cutting a 3-inch circle from another organdie fabric squre, a 2-inch circle from another and a 1-inch circle from another.

Squeeze a small amount of glue on the centre of the 4-inch circle of organdie.

Layer the 3-inch circle directly over the glued spot, matching up the centres evenly.

Layer the remaining organdie circles in this manner with the very top circle being the 1-inch piece. This creates a frilly and ruffled flower.

Squeeze a small amount of glue on the centre of the top layer.

Press a buckeye firmly over the glued centre. This creates the centre of your organdie flower.

Tip

Glue a brooch fixture to the back of your organdie flower to create a wearable accessory, or make several to decorate your walls or scrapbooks. Glue a series of organdie blossoms to pipe cleaners to create stemmed flowers for a vase creation.
