Singed Flowers

I saw a post on singed flowers a while back and thought, "I could do that!" After perusing the internet I found a few inspirations that I knew I needed to try to make myself. The first one is a belt, or I could wear it as a headband (like I don't have enough already)! I got my inspiration from Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous, love love love her site!
Singed flowers is a super easy thing to make! I used organza for my black and white flowers and satin for my yellow flowers. All you do is cut out your flowers and singe the edges. I lit a candle, since I was making so many. Easy peasy!
The next thing I made with my flowers was a shirt. I didn't just get my inspiration from Char at Crap I've Made, I completely copied hers! I loved the blue and yellow together, so springy!
And finally, I made a single white organza flower for my hair. I used the same techniqued and just attached it to a bobby pin. The picure is a little glare-y, but it has little white beads in the center. Simple.


  1. I love your blog! Such cute things! These flowers are going on my to do list! I am just starting out as a Blogger. Any tips on how you got your followers? I really want people to visit my blog but i am unsure how to get them there. Thanks for all your cute ideas!

  2. Hey Chelsea! Thanks for stopping by. The best thing I can tell you is to link up your crafts to link parties that different people host. It's the best way for other people to click on your blog. If you'll check out my summer wreath post there are a bunch of party links at the bottom. I always visit the sites of crafts that I see on those parties. I hope this helps! I checked out your blog...super cute stuff!!
