How To Make a Flower Belt


Artificial flower, Grosgrain Ribbon, and Decorative Brad. (All can be found at a craft store.)

Do not pick a flower like this, with no removable center. No matter how cute it is, you will not be able to get a brad through it.

Remove flower from stem.

Completely disassemble the flower.

Place brad through the holes.

Measure and cut the desired length of ribbon.

Poke brad into ribbon.


Enjoy adorable belt.

This takes all of 3 minutes and costs next to nothing.
