These are simple but stunning. They really transform the look of the curtains... just take a look.
Yards of organza (depends on how many and how big you want your flowers)
Circle templates (small, medium, large to your liking)
Rotary cutter & self-healing mat
Material to be used as the curtain tie (I used thin rope)
1. Gather your materials
3. Melt the edges over an open flame until they pucker. I purposely let mine burn a bit to coordinate with our white muslin and dark brown silk curtains. Arrange each layer until it begins to resemble a blossom and insert a pin through the center.
4. Sew a cross-stitch over the pin to attach each layer together.
5. Sew a button to the center of each flower. On the reverse side tack the flower to a curtain tie (rope, ribbon, fabric scrap, etc).
I know big flowers aren't exactly everyone's aesthetic but I am so enamored by them. They are delicate, earthy, and even a bit rustic. I couldn't be happier with how they turned out.
