DIY Wreath | Home Decor Craft | Apostrophe S | Ruffled Dahlia


Hi, this is Jill with Apostrophe S. Today
I’m going to show you how to make this new Dahlia addition for the Ruffled Wreath. It’s
called Ruffled Dahlia and you remember the Ruffled Wreath that we did. This has been
a huge favorite with a lot of our customers and so we wanted to give you something in
addition to this bow. If you want to see how we made this, you can go online and watch
the video for this particular wreath. You’ll also remember the Ruffled Harvest and you’ll
see that these were done just a little bit differently, so that you get kind of a different
look with your felt. You can watch either video to get those looks. But I wanted to
just make mention this particular one we did yet another kind of technique and what we
did is we just, you can see that these are just circles that we just put in half and
pinned here. Then you can just pivot them where you want to make the ruffled look. But
for this video, I’m going to show you this darling dahlia. Okay, so here’s everything
that comes in this simple kit. You get the pins, the leaves, all of the felt for the
dahlia itself, in the different sizes. The only thing that you’re going to need from
home is a hot glue gun. Okay, so let’s get started. You’re going to
start out with all of your pieces and you’re going to each of the circles. What you’re
going to do is you’re going to just put your finger here and turn it like this to make
like a little cone. You’ll make it really small on this end, wide on this end and I
just held it with my fingers like this and then I just barely opened this flap, put a
little bit of glue right there and then just held it like this until it dried. So let me
show you how those all looked. I did all of them first so that I had all of the different
sizes all ready to go, even these little tiny ones, and these take just a minute to do,
but it’s the same kind of thing. You just turn it. You can’t put your finger in there
and just put the glue on it. Don’t worry if the glue shows on this end because you’re
not going to see it. I’ll show you how to do that in just a second. So then you take
your main biggest circle and that’s going to be the base of the dahlia and you start
gluing the pieces on like this. Now you’ll see here that I have some big spaces in between
these and what we would suggest is, well what I did was I just started gluing, instead of
really putting them on first and making sure I had them tight enough so that they didn’t
have gaps in between. So we would just suggest you do this. If I were to finish this one,
I would just push these down here when I glued the next group on top to kind of close those
loops, but I did the biggest circle here and then I got the next size and layered them
like this and I glued all those down again with the hot glue. Then the very last one
I took the little ones, that are the lightest color and put them down inside, kind of like
that and just glued them, anchored them to this. So let me show you how it looks when
it’s done. Whoops. It looks like this. Isn’t that pretty? So you can see I love the different
sizes in here make it look a little bit more realistic, okay? Then we just flipped it over
and we hot glued the leaves. I just set the leaves like this and then I did two, well
I did like a third one there and then two here. Then I did the clip in the middle like
this. So that’s all you need to do. You can clip it to that ruffled wreath or you can
put it on a bag or something else and it’s darling. So that’s all there is to it, really
easy. Ruffled Dahlia from Apostrophe S…make it
yours.
