Picture of Flower Hair Accessories
Here is a way to make a flower hair accessory for summer. Add a bit of summer spirit to any outfit! You can use it to add a bit of formal element to an outfit or have a casual look. They are very customizable and you can personalize them to suit your own style.

I think anyone can make these, but it helps if you have some sewing experience. They take about 30 minutes to make depending on your skill level.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
For this project, you will need:

- Sewing machine
- Needle and thread
- Fabric (scraps work great for this project!)
- Scissors
- Glue
- Cardstock (or something sturdy)
- Buttons, beads, or anything you can think to use for the center of your flower
- Hair pin of your choice (consider the size that you want your flower when choosing!)


Step 2: Cut fabric

Picture of Cut fabric
You'll need six squares of fabric, one for each petal. Cut each piece with the dimensions you want the flower to be. For example, a 5cm square would make a flower that is just under 5cm. I wouldn't recommend making it less than 4cm since it can get tricky to sew.

For a flower with two (or more) colours, cut additional squares for each petal that are slightly larger/smaller than the original squares you cut. The larger squares will be the outer colour and the smaller ones will be the inner colour.

I haven't tried, but I imagine you could use more or less petals. Experiment and see what you like best! Also mixing and matching colours, alternating fabrics, etc. can make interesting flowers!

Step 3: Make petals

Following the pictures, fold the fabric in half , and then fold it in half again. You should have a smaller square now (see second photo).

Next, fold the lose corners up to the second fold you made (see photos 3 and 4). Align the edges so they are equal. You should have a triangle now (photo 5).
