How To Make Dough Flowers Part-1
By Khadija's Creative Mind on March 22nd, 2014 As the spring season is coming around, everything seems more beautiful & colorful now, do you feel any presence of spring around? its finally here.. I made some dough and thought to create something colorful. First I thought to make flowers & decorate any wall hanging with dough flowers, but later I skip this idea because there are a couple more wall arts already on my craft table & I am working on. So I thought to skip wall art & create an ordinary thing with these flowers.
Making flowers with dough/clay is really a fun idea.. They look nice in small sizes as well as big. Today I will be sharing the making of these flowers, So have a look at my today’s post, see how I made this..
Let’s make a Rose Flower..a pink rose is so lovely.. pretty pink.. see below!
First you will need to have some dough, I use my handmade dough, you can get the recipe of handmade dough HERE.I mix some colors in the creamy white dough. the colors I mixed in are fabric paints and then started working on.
Make a ball, then shape it in a drop shape, press it & a petal shape is here! then make 8 petals for one rose flower. 2 might be small & the others are in same sizes.
I make the center of flower by rolling the strip of the dough. Then glue it & started fixing these petals with the center bud. shape the petal as a rose petals. arrange well & then wait until it gets dry a little.
I made one small Rose & some petal buds, some green as leaves & the other colors too. I will be using all these as fillers for my next project.
That’s it..I made a floral basket with these dough flowers.!In my next post I will be sharing the tutorial on how to arrange a dough flower basket for gifting someone! its a small & cute gift which you can share with your friends, & as you know handmade is always Love..
You can try making so many flowers this way & then you can decorate any wall hanging, any glass organizer, even any flower pot too.. isn’t it fun..so give it a try & then show me what you create & how is it.. would love to see your creations. You can see some of my handmade dough crafts HERE
