DIY: Flower Ring Pipe Cleaners

{picture via Bakerella}
As I was reading Bakerella's new post here, what caught my eye was this flower ring made out PIPE CLEANERS! It was given to her by a fan. I knew I had to try this since I have so many pipe cleaners laying around. So I was in search for a tutorial! I came across the Martha Stewart Wedding site! It shows a video of how to! Such an easy project and FUN! I made a picture tutorial in case you wanted to see it step-by-step =)
You need 1 pipe cleaner for the stem and 6 pipe cleaners of your desired color for the flower
bunch all 6 pipe cleaners together, then twist 5-7 times in the middle
this part will be your ring part
put the part you just twisted under the finger you want to wear it on
(I like wearing my rings on this finger)
then twist
the scatter like this
take each end and curl here
(this is so the ends doesn't "poke" you)
then curl all the way to the ring part
repeat to all
now take your "petals" and fix and arrange to your desired look
it should look something like this =)
You are done with the flower part!
Now to add the stem...
put the middle of the pipe cleaner "stem" under the flower
then twist to secure it
just like earlier steps, roll the stem leaves
almost done!
pinch at end to give a leaf look
Ta-Da! you are done! Wasn't that easy?!?!
My son made a Halloween one for his teacher! She was suprised something so cute came out of pipe cleaners! Hehe!
