DIY Flower Petal Tutu Dress
How to Make Flower Petal Ladies
Begin by pulling apart three silk flowers with large, full blossoms. Do this by grasping the stem in one hand and the flower part in the other and pulling in opposite directions. Some can be stubborn, so tug hard. They will come apart, and small plastic pieces such as stamens will fall out. Keep these little pieces to use later.
Hold two pipe cleaners together and with one of the large blossoms upside down, thread the blossom onto the pipe cleaner. Look inside and you will see a tiny hole where the flower was once attached. The two pipe cleaners might be a tight fit, but the chenille will flatten and they will go through the hole. This makes the skirt, repeat with up to two more blossoms for a fuller skirt.
Thread two 1" wooden beads from the top onto the two pipe cleaners. Push the skirt to approximately half way on the pipe cleaners and allow the two "body" beads to rest against the skirt. Thread on a small flower part to act as the collar.
Continue working from the top and add one more 1" wooden bead for the head. Thread on another small blossom for a hat.
Hold another pipe cleaner horizontally under the head bead and twist twice to secure it to make the arms.Cut 1" off the ends of the arms. Thread the small plastic flower pieces that fell off when you took the flower apart onto each of the arms as bracelets.
Return to the top and create a hook for hanging the flower lady. Separate the two pipe cleaners and bend one down until it touches the head bead to form a loop. Wrap the other piece tightly around the base of the loop to secure it. Thread a 12" piece of curling ribbon through the loop and tie for a hanger.
Separate the two legs and thread on tiny flowers for ankle bracelets. Bend back the ends and twist to form feet. Bend the feet upward.
Hang your petal girl where she will be seen as you pass through a room. She will make you smile. Draw on a face with fine line Sharpie. Her perky little skirt will never need pressing.

- Don't be discouraged when initially trying to fit the pipe cleaner duo through the tiny hole in the flower. It will go through.
- Help those with reduced hand strength to take the flowers apart. Also, initially getting the first flower onto the pipe cleaners could be difficult for those with this deficiency.
