Paillette Flowers

Use paillette flowers for rings, headband accents, and shoe decorations.


  • Silver embroidery thread
  • Needle
  • 10 paillettes
  • 4 beads
  • Magna-Tac glue


  1. Step 1

    Make the flower center: Use needle and thread to string 5 paillettes and the beads, beginning with a paillette and alternating. Tightly gather thread to form paillettes and beads into an open book shape. Knot thread, and trim excess.

  2. Step 2

    Make the flower base: Arrange remaining 5 paillettes in an overlapping circle, like petals; secure with glue and let dry.

  3. Step 3

    Glue the flower center to the flower base; let dry.
