What You'll Need:
Synthetic fabric
Candle
Pin
Needle and thread
Clear spray paint (optional)

How To Make It:
1. Cut out 10-20 flower shapes of various sizes in a synthetic fabric, like polyester chiffon.
2. Run the flower edges above a flame until the edges slightly ruffle. This seals the cut edges, keeping the fabric from fraying.
3. Optional: Spray clear paint on the petals to stiffen them.
4. Layer all the shapes together, then sew together by running a few stitches through the center.
5. Glue or sew a pin to the back of the bloom.
