Before I start, I’ll just address the elephant in the room. Red isn’t an Easter color. But one of my inviolable Rules of Frugality states that I do not buy clothes that can only be worn once. So when I bought the girls’ Christmas dresses, I bought ones that were white with red (Christmas-y) flowers (Easter-y). See? But of course this could be easily adapted to a pastel dress as well.
I don’t know if this is cheating, but the white flowers came with the generic white hat from Target. I nipped off the little threads holding them on and glued them back where I wanted them.
As for the fabric flowers, I cut a piece about 4 1/2″ wide and 21″ long. I used two fat quarters of fabric and got five roses from each. After I cut the strips, I tied a knot in one end.
I then loosely twisted the fabric as I wrapped it around the knot, hot-gluing about every half-round.
I’d try a practice rose or two to make sure you’re gluing where it won’t be seen. Once I was done, I glued the roses on the hat, alternating with the white flowers.
I had some extra fabric flowers left, so I glued them on to hairclips.
A plethora of choices for Easter headgear!
