I've really enjoyed seeing all the ways zippers have become an accessory. You may have noticed that I
like love flowers. I whipped up these two roses and now I can't stop thinking about all the different ways I would like to use them: on a headband, on a purse, as a hair clip, as a brooch, etc.
- 30 inch upholstery zipper (you can buy a 72" zipper and make two)
- Low-melt hot glue gun
- Cut the ends off the zipper and remove the moving part (I don't know what that is called)
- Begin by squeezing a small strip of glue on one end, and rolling the zipper two times.
- Create petals by folding the zipper into a point and gluing petal in place. Form petals continuously in a triangular pattern around the center.
