Sassy Silk Sunflower

Time Needed: 10 minutes
Level of difficulty: easy
Materials needed: silky material (like a polyester), felt, beads, a flame source, hair clippie
Directions: Cut several circles in various sizes. Then, make big incisions around the edges of your circles (like, up to 1/4 inch big - they shrink during the next step). Stick the edge near the flame and watch it curl up. This gives the edge a really cool look. Once sufficiently singed, glue the pieces together largest to smallest. Glue felt to the back so you can't see it but so that it's reinforced. Glue a clippie to that, glue some beads to the center, and you're good to go! If you want to go back and visit the frayed fabric rose and put one of those in the middle, like I did in the picture, go for it. I used brown ribbon for that. Just an idea!
