DIY Rag Flowers: Fun, Whimsical, and Affordable Craft Project!

Hello crafty friends!


I am thrilled to share with you a fun DIY project: making rag flowers using shower curtain rings and fabric strips. This craft is not only fun and whimsical but also incredibly affordable. Plus, it's a fantastic way to use up those fabric scraps you've been saving!



Why You'll Love This Project

Affordable and Accessible: I found the shower curtain rings at Dollar Tree, making this project budget-friendly. You probably already have some leftover fabric scraps at home, so you won't need to spend much.

Fun for All Ages: This is a great craft to do with kids. It's simple enough for beginners but can also be a delightful project for experienced crafters looking for a quick and satisfying activity.

Customization: Choose your favorite color themes to match your home decor or create a vibrant bouquet of rag flowers in all your favorite colors. The possibilities are endless!




What You'll Need

  • Shower curtain rings (from Dollar Tree or any budget store)

  • Strips of fabric in your chosen colors

  • Scissors

  • Hot glue gun

  • wooden dowel rods/skewers


Step-by-Step Tutorial

For the full tutorial, make sure to check out my YouTube video where I walk you through each step of the process. You'll see exactly how to create these beautiful rag flowers.

Basic Steps:

  1. Prepare Your Fabric: Cut your fabric into strips. The size of the strips can vary, but I find that 1-inch to 1 1/2 wide strips by 8 inches long work best for a fuller flower.

  2. Wrap the Rings: Take a shower curtain ring and tie the strips to it. Take a strip, fold it in half - put the loop end through the ring. Take the tails of the strip and put through the loop -- pull it tight.

  3. Fill the Ring: add all of the strips to the ring.

  4. Create the Center: trace a ring on a piece of cardboard, cut it out. cut a square of fabric a bit bigger that the circle. Using hot glue, wrap the fabric to the back and secure. Glue the center to the back of the ring.

  5. Finish and Fluff: Fluff and adjust the petals to give your flower a natural look. Glue a dowel rod to the back if you'd like.


Benefits of DIY Rag Flowers

  • Eco-Friendly: This project is a fantastic way to recycle and upcycle fabric scraps that might otherwise go to waste.
