To be convinced of this and learn how to make flowers for interior decoration yourself, we suggest using several step-by-step master classes for making beautiful things for your apartment.

Flowers from fabric in pots

Many flower lovers do not always manage to grow green plants at home. There are a number of reasons for this: allergic manifestations (runny nose, sneezing, etc.), pets (turn floral pots or meet their needs), inability to properly care for plants (frequent business trips), etc. But do not deny yourself the pleasure of admiring the bright flowers of the house, because you can make original floral compositions of textile materials. Such an article will not be difficult to perform even for beginner needlewomen.

To make flowers in the pot you will need the following materials and tools:

  • fabric for a flower (cotton material of two colors);
    thread (must match the color of the fabric);
  • needle;
  • braid green (to wrap the stem);
  • a wooden stick or wire (for a stem);
  • a flower pot;
  • scissors;
  • braid and decor elements (for decorating the pot);
    cotton wool or sintepon (for stuffing flower parts);
  • plasticine;
  • artificial moss;
  • glue gun or super glue.
    Progress
  • From the fabric, we cut 5 circles with a diameter of about 15 cm (for petals) and 1 circle with a diameter of 20 cm (for the middle).
  • Each of the circles along the edges is seam “forward with a needle” and tighten a little. It turns out a detail resembling a small round pouch.
  • We fill each such bag with filler (cotton wool, sintepon) and tighten the working thread.
  • After all the bags are filled with a soft filler and tightly tightened, we connect them together. Around the larger part (middle) we distribute the smaller details (petals) and sew, trying to hide the places of the screed.

  • Now proceed to the manufacture of the stem. A wooden stick with a length of 20-25 cm is wrapped in green tape. To prevent the tape from spinning, at the beginning and end of the wrap we fix its edges with a glue gun (glue). A wooden stick can be replaced with a wire. To do this, cut the wire several times and twist together into a thick bundle. Then wrap the tape.
  • We connect the stalk and flower with a glue gun on the back side.
  • At the bottom of the pot we put the kneaded clay and stick a flower leg into it.
  • Top lay decorative moss.
  • We decorate the pot to your liking. You can tie a bright ribbon and put a wooden button or a figure in the middle of the bow.

Cute flower in the pot is ready! Undoubtedly, such a cheerful element of the decor will bring a certain variety and originality to the interior, especially since the coloring for textile articles can be selected in accordance with the design of the room.
