I promise this is a post about the flower that my little man is wearing. What I really want to talk about is how much fun I have dressing up that little guy…but I am going to fight the urge. But since we are on the subject, I will say that most people claim that it is not as much fun to dress up little boys as it is little girls, and just for the record, I kinda disagree. I mean seriously, look at my Thomas’ outfit!
Now back to the flowers. Here is Emerson’s “Little Dandy” for men. I love it. And I started thinking that Thomas most certainly needed one for Easter. You can read about my other do it yourself Emerson adventure here. That tutorial was for Emerson’s “Big Poppy” flower, this one is for the guys. Here is Emerson’s man wearing his:
These are easy to make, and you know how I hate writing tutorials, so we’re gonna keep this brief. Cut out a few linen circles. That navy felt circle in the bottom of the image is for the back of the flower.
Cut your “petals” by rotating around each circle cutting long lines, being sure to not get too close to the center. Once all your circles have been cut, hot glue the felt circle to the back and then glue on a pin. Lastly, fluff the petals.
