materials

  • Silver spray paint

  • Floral craft ring, 18 inches ($5, by Beacon, michaels.com)

  • Floral appliques, two types (Flower pair silver beads and sequins appliqué, 6" by 3½", $4; and flower with silver beads and sequins appliqué, 4" by 7", $7, sequinappliques.com)

  • Hot-glue gun

  • Clear fabric glue (Fabri-Tac permanent adhesive, by Beacon, $10, michaels.com)

  • Fabric scraps

  • Wooden blocks, each ½ inch

steps

  1. Spray-paint ring. Let dry.

  2. Arrange 12 flower appliqués around ring (there will be open spaces). Attach with hot glue.

  3. Cut individual flowers out of large three-flower appliqué (we used 6 to make 18 flowers). Apply fabric glue to wrong sides of flowers. Sandwich stem wire between appliqué and a fabric scrap (this allows you to bend appliqué). Let dry; cut away excess fabric.

  4. Hot-glue each flower to a wooden block.

  5. Position on ring as desired, filling in gaps, on top of first layer of appliqués. Secure with hot glue. Let dry.

  6. Bend appliqués up to create dimension; hang.
