You will need a few things to get started:
- A 12-inch long ribbon of your favorite colors. You will find a beautiful range of colors and varieties here.
- A small needle with thread that matches the color of the ribbon
- A metal wire for stick
- Green floral tape for metal wire. It’s important to get one with good glue and sturdy texture to keep the flower on the metal tape.
Put thread in the needle and tie a knot at the end of the thread to hold it in place.
Push the needle from front to back into the ribbon along with the edge. Keep doing it until you have finished the whole thread.
Draw the thread tight and before you finish the running stitch. This will help in creating a basic form of a ribbon flower.
Stitch over the last few stitches to secure the form of your ribbon flower.
Start folding the ribbon so that it forms a shape of a circle. The tails of the ribbon should hang down from the flower.
Use a metal wire, cut it off according to the size you’d like.
Use green floral tape to wrap on the metal wire to make it look like a stick.
Hold the flower with the floral ribbon and wrap the green tape around the ribbon flower. Wrap it until it’s attached tightly to the metal wire.
Viola, your beautiful ribbon flower is ready.
