Steps For Making Fall Flower Dress

  1. Preparations

    Take a large piece of fabric that will be the base of your design. Place it on the mannequin and secure it with pins. You can choose for a solid color fabric or go crazy and use fabric with designs.

  2. Creating the dress

    Use the iron wire to “connect” the salix branches together. Then wrap it around the mannequin. Now add the Salix Golden Curls one by one. Use the iron wire and rope to tightly secure the branches to the mannequin. Do the same for the Rose Hips. Cut off stems at the top of the dress that are too long and might stick out. Take the sheets of bark and glue them to the dress. Wrap a colored rope around the bark and tighten it.

  3. Adding the finishing touch

    Wind small pieces of iron wire around the Physalis Lampions. Bind them to the Salix or Rose Hips at the bottom of the dress. Continue to do this until the bottom is nicely filled.

  4. Enjoy!

    Your Fall Flower Dress is now ready. Enjoy!
