Burned Edge Flowers

 Here are some easy hair accessories to create from an old formal dress, satin blouse or fabric scraps. Cut various sized cirles from a taffeta or satin style fabric. Gently and quickly dip the edges of the circle over a lit candle making sure to to hold it just above the heat of the flame so that the fabric melts a bit but doesn't ignite. If it does, don't panic, just blow it out quickly. Obviously this is not a kid's craft. Layer the circles and stitch together. Add buttons or beads in the center and sew onto hair clips, pins or headbands and they look adorable. I have examples of these in necklaces on another post. Have fun!
