How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Smooth velvet over a flat surface; measure and cut two 7 1/2-by-3 1/2-inch strips. Use fusible web to join strips together, with wrong sides facing. Trace flower template onto fabric.

Step 2

Cut leaves out with scissors, then do a running stitch directly below leaves with doubled sewing thread. Pull thread to gather fabric into a tight bouquet, adding a few backstitches to secure gathering, and do the same after matching beginning and end of strip. Stitch through gathered section to tighten blossom; arrange leaves in place.

Step 3

Paint insides of sora pods; spray-paint nuts gold. Arrange bunny tails, gilded nuts and pods, and velvet blossoms on wreath, attaching with glue gun, until you reach desired appearance.
