Hey Peg Bow Maker, meet Flower Loom :-) Seriously, your husbands and boyfriends are going to tire of me I think, lol!! Well so many of you asked how to make the flower I made on this post and I chuckled because I had to make a flower loom to make that flower. Why make a flower loom? Well I suppose you can buy them somewhere, I’ve not seen one and mine is very inexpensive. The round box I made it from costs $1.00 plus some additional hardware. So anyways, this is such a cute and easy way to make these ribbon flowers. I made all the sweet flowers above with this little contraption below, my flower loom :-) It now has a place on my shelf next to my Peg Bow Maker.
Here are some options when looking for a cylindrical item to make the loom. The small box at Michaels is $1.00, I found yet another round box and a birdhouse whose roof I removed. How about a wooden flower pot?
Here is a close up picture of the rivets I purchased (at Home Depot). I only needed 16 of them but this multipack was all they had.
By the way, should you make a loom and show on your blog or elsewhere, I’d appreciate a link back to this post for the work I put into this. Thanks!!
|SUPPLIES I USED
Accessories: 1 Round Box, 1 5/64ths drill bit, 2″ Nail, 16 – 1/8″ Rivets with 1/2″ grip
Thanks so much for stopping by. I sincerely hope you will give this a try – it’s an easy tutorial and gives you one more thing you can make to embellish your cards with out breaking the bank!!
