This pillow started out to be something totally different. Then it morphed into something else, and after about five more modifications, it became this awesome pillow.

You all know how much I love to make pillows. And flower crafts are my favorite. So, a flower craft pillow was the perfect idea.

This pillow is so versatile. I love it outside and in the upstairs bedroom. I could also put it in our family room or living room.

Here is a close up of the flowers I made. As you can see, all they are is folded fabric wrapped in a circle to look like roses.

What you Need to Make This Flower Craft Pillow

How to Make a Flower Craft Pillow with Old Fabric
  • Three yards of cotton fabric, 45″ or wider fabric (I used a vintage curtain I had purchased at a flea market)
  • One pillow cover
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks

Step One – Rip the fabric into 2″ strips. I made 50 flowers for my 18″ pillow. Depending on the size or your flowers, you may need a few more.

Rip Fabric Into Strips

Fold the fabric in half along the long side, and wrap the fabric loosely in a circular motion. Be careful not to wrap the fabric too loosely.

I liked having different size flowers, but that is up to you.

Place flowers on Pillow

As each flower is made, place them on the pillow cover and arrange the flowers as you like them.

Continue to place the flowers on the pillow cover, being careful not to let them unravel. I tried to mix up the sizes so they appeared random.

Keep the flowers closely together as you place them on the pillow cover.

It doesn’t take long to make the flowers. It’s easiest if you keep the flowers flat on the table and you wind them.

Here is how they look when I am done. I love how this looks.

The next step is to glue the flowers to the pillow cover. Just lift up the flower, add hot glue to the pillow cover, and place the flower firmly on top of the hot glue. Start in the middle and work you way to the outer edges.

Be sure to check and make sure they are all securely attached before you lift the pillow.

At this stage, you can also sew them to the cover if you want. It’s up to you.

This is how the pillow looked once everything was glued.
