Discovering 2014: Flower Ribbon Sculpture

Discovering 2014 is a personal goal to complete a daily project throughout the year!

Today’s project was a Flower Ribbon Sculpture. I’ve done flowers in the past, such as this or this, but there’s so many different types to try that I could almost make a full month of them! This one was much easier to put together than yesterday’s butterfly, and I used this pin as my example.


  • (1) 2 3/4″ long 3/8″ grosgrain ribbon (flower)
  • (1) 2″ long 3/8″ grosgrain ribbon (flower; same color as above)
  • (2) 1″ long 3/8″ grosgrain ribbon (leaves, green)
  • covered hair clip (green)
  • hot glue gun

Take your 2″ and 2 3/4″ pieces and wrap them around each other like shown below, adhering with hot glue. The larger one wraps around the outside, of course! 🙂

Cut your green grosgrain pieces to have a pointed end for the leaf shape. You can use a heat sear like a lighter or fray check to keep it from unraveling.

Hot glue the flower onto your covered hair clip, add the leaves, and that’s it!
