Satin Hair Flowers

Have a little extra satin laying around? I have the project for you! These hair flowers are easy to make and super duper fun. (insert cartwheel)

Let's get to it:


  • Satin ( I bought 1/8 yard at Hobby Lobby for $0.37...steal!)
  • thread and needle
  • fake pearls
  • candle and matches

Step 1
Cut small rounds out of the satin. They should be four different sizes (SM, MD, LG, XL)

Step 2
Light the candle and burn the edges of all the circles. They will shrivel up because of the plastic in the fabric.  They will curl and take on the shape of a petal. (this is the fun part!)

Step 3
Stack the petals on top of each other in size order. (ie large on bottom small on top)

Step 4
Stitch a couple stitches in the center to secure the petals.

Step 5
Add pearls to the center as if you were sewing on buttons. You could add beads, buttons, or anything else you can think of to the center of this flower.  It is very versatile and easy to experiment with.

Step 6
You are at the final step. Hoorah! You can add a pin, alligator clip, or barrette to the back.  I chose to add a barrette as I am going to be wearing this in my hair.

TA-DAH! all done! like my modeling skills? hehehe
