Since it has dropped below 70 in the land of melt-your-skin-off-hot where I live, I'm getting ready for Uggs, sweaters, scarves and my sister's famous chili. It seriously went from 85 to 30 in 3 days and I wasn't prepared! So, today I picked up a Plain Jane gray scarf at the Thrift Store for $1.00 (Yay for half off blue tags today!) I guess it would serve the purpose but it just wasn't pretty so I had to doll it up a bit. All it took was some felt and the
I started by cutting my felt in about 1" strips. I didn't measure because it really doesn't matter. Once you have your strips cut, start rolling your fabric tightly. Once you make about 2-3 complete turns, twist your fabric strips and roll another 1/2 turn. Then twist your fabric again. Do this until you get to the end and put a dab of hot glue to secure your ends. When I made these, I would press them down, burn my fingers and do a little jump-jerk-yell what could be perceived as profanity number as I peeled the glue from my scalded finger. I'm hoping you will skip this step. It doesn't add any benefit. Once you finish rolling your flowers, arrange them and cover the bottoms in hot glue to secure.
Easy Peasy! Now my $1.00 little scarf if ready to brave these frigid (I know I'm dramatic, but dang, it's cold to me after the miserable summer we had!) temps in style!
