I must say I have a flare for the dramatic. I love accessories that make a bold statement yet, are classy and not too over the top. This is an accessory that you can make for little money and will take that dress from a $20.00 dress to a $200.00 in no time.
Here’s what you need:
- 1 Black Silk Dahlia Flower (I purchased mine from Michael’s.)
- 1 Rhinestone Broach (This is a pendant from Tori Spelling’s line Styled. I also purchased this at Michael’s and used a 40% off coupon.)
- 1 Small Piece of Black Felt
- Hot Glue Gun
- 1 Clip & Pin Back
First thing you will need to do is take the center out of the flower. I had already removed this a while ago to see if the flower was going to work for this project. When you take out the center, the flower will fall apart somewhat. Keep all layers of the petals and even the back. I chose to leave the green plastic base of the flower on since this was a larger flower. It needs the additional support. I also didn’t want the flower to be too flimsy. Go through and hot glue all the layers of the flowers together. I went ahead and did this to make sure the flower wasn’t going to fall apart on me while I was wearing it.
From here, cut the felt circle for the back of the flower. Glue the felt on and adhere the clip and pin back.
Here’s my simple $20.00 dress from Target with the dahlia broach on it. This broach is just perfect and I love how it looks. And to top things off, it took me only 10 minutes to make. So simple!
Now your turn to make one.
