Craft Project: Festive Flowers

Brighten someone's day with a bouquet of these everlasting blooms.

Approximate Time: Less than 1 hour


  • 3-inch fabric squares
  • rubber bands
  • green chenille stems
  • scissors


Stack four 3-inch fabric squares so that all the edges match up. Starting from one end, fan fold the stack to create 1/2 inch wide pleats. Tightly wrap a rubber band around the center. Sandwich the pleated stack between the bend of a folded chenille stem. Twist the ends together just below flower to form a stem. Separate the fabric layers to form a ruffled flower. Using scissors, trim any unwanted strings from the cut edges. Create several of these to form a bouquet.
