After you have all of the shapes you want, you then need to stitch them together. For the centers, I used beads. I used about 3-5 beads per flower and sewed them so the flower parts would stay together well. Then, after all of the beads were sewn onto the flowers, I glued all of the flowers into place on the skirt. I used an old skirt from Forever 21, but you can use any skirt from a thrift store or something really old of course.
I would love to see if anyone tries this! Please visit me on my "blog":http://starsforstreetlights.blogspot.com/ for more DIY and if you have any questions-- I am a lot better about getting back to people if they comment on there because I check it more regularly.
