SO for all you DIY people out there, be prepared to burn the tips of your fingers. You may burn them with hot glue or actual fire, but it will happen. THis is not a craft for perfectionist because there is nothing perfect about it. Start by cutting circles from flammable polyester fabric. "Circle" doesn't neccessarily mean round, more like roundish.
Then layer the petals together and embellish with all kinds of odds and ends. Choose from pearls, buttons, rhinestones, feathers and other random findings.
