Tutorial: DIY silk peony flower for handmade headbands, brooches and hair clips

The spring has arrived quite a few weeks ago, but the peonies are just beginning to bloom. Make one and wear it in your hair with this easy tutorial.

Peonies are gorgeous flowers and I’ve made quite a few over the years. They are colorful and easy to make and to wear in a hair bun or on a vest or even on a summer hat.

You surely have some fabrics lying around, waiting for a project. Because of the double layers, this design works great with silk, satin, even cotton or soft, sheer fabrics left over from dresses or old clothes.

Find your fabrics, cut them up and follow the photos for the steps, each of them has an explanation.


If you enjoyed this tutorial, pin it and share it with your crafty friends.

Also, if you want me to let you know when I publish new tutorials, just sign up in the left pane and I’ll send you an email at most once a week (more like once a month).

When you make this flower, show me some photos, I’d love to see them.

Thank you for your support. I wish you a beautiful summer, full of blooming flowers.
